Hello everyone! I have a quick, easy snack or breakfast recipe to share with you all today. These buckwheat blueberry muffins are perfect for busy days. I am usually a full 30 minutes for breakfast sort of person, but some days that just isn’t possible and I love having something easy and healthy like these muffins to grab and eat. They are also particularly delicious as an afternoon snack with a hot cup of coffee!
Buckwheat flour is incredibly delicious and healthy, it is naturally gluten-free and high in fibre. Its yummy, nutty taste lends itself well to baking and I much prefer it to wholemeal flour! These blueberry buckwheat muffins are also full of plump, juicy blueberries and yoghurt, making them fluffy and moist. They have much less sugar than a normal blueberry muffin, but they are still to die-for and you can easily add more sugar if you fancy it!
- Flour: you can use all buckwheat, all plain flour or a mix of the two like I have.
- Blueberries: you can use any fresh or frozen berry in this recipe.
- Gluten-free: buckwheat flour is naturally gluten-free, so either use 2 cups of that or 1 cup buckwheat and 1 cup plain gluten-free flour.
- Dairy-free: use coconut oil, coconut yoghurt and your preferred dairy-free milk.
- Vegan: use coconut oil, coconut yoghurt, your preferred plant milk and 2 flax eggs (1 tbsp ground flax mixed with 2.5 tbsp water per egg)
- Sugar: the amount of sugar in this recipe is a low amount for a muffin recipe so they aren’t super sweet, if you would prefer to make them sweeter. You can increase the sugar up to 1 cup or anywhere in between!
