There is no gluten in buckwheat - it's a totally different family of plant, and is not even a grain.

Dear James, as you are aware buckwheat is naturally gluten free however with our Wholemeal Buckwheat Flour 1kg bag we are unable to guarantee that there isn’t any field cross contamination from other crops, hence this is milled and packed in a non-Gluten Free process line. Our Gluten Free Buckwheat in a 130g tube is milled and packed on a dedicated Gluten Free process line and is tested for gluten content before packing. All the best from Doves Farm

since the gluten free buckwheat flour contains gluten is it possible to do these with the gluten free plain or self rasing flour ?

These work really well both as 'canape' style and larger breakfast style blinis - a real boon for the gluten intolerant. If you use a hand held mixer, and mix the eggs and batter well - you can even miss out the baking powder (I forgot to add it this morning!).
