France Rechichi and David Amar are the brains behind a new range of gluten-free cookies formulated to provide both nutrition and taste.

They started off making gluten-free pizza bases under the company name of Pizzaiolis, but eventually they got a hankering to develop the range beyond pizzas.

Since that initial thought to expand, the men have both spent years developing cookies which combine buckwheat, honey, stevia, blackstrap molasses, and dry fruits.
