  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

About Aquafaba
Aquafaba (meaning "bean water") is the cooking water from chickpeas. You can also find in the can when you buy chickpeas -- see our post, Aquafaba: An Easy Vegan Egg Replacer for all the details. 
About Buckwheat Flour 
If you have buckwheat groats and a good blender or food processor, you can grind them into flour in just a few seconds. 
About Orange Oil
This is not the same as orange-flavouring or orange extract, although that would do in a pinch. Orange oil is very intense. Read your label to see how much is recommended.
