I guess you could say I’ve been on a muffin kick. If you follow me on Instagram you would’ve seen a sneak-peak of these muffins in my stories the other day. I was happy to receive a few messages from you asking for the recipe, because you bet I planned on sharing it! These muffins are too good not to share, and sometimes you just want a muffin, you know? And to tell you the truth, I ate the entire two batches that I made of these of muffins. Minus a couple that Sean enjoyed 😉

100% gluten-free, these muffins are made with a mix of buckwheat flour and arrowroot starch and lightly sweetened with maple syrup. You can use frozen or fresh blueberries, and once they bake up, they just burst with blueberry goodness. I’m onto my fourth batch today… ha!

Why I Love Buckwheat Flour

Contrary to its name, buckwheat is actually a member of the rhubarb family and not related to wheat. In fact, it isn’t even a grain at all — it’s a pseudograin that’s actually a seed! Buckwheat is rich in minerals and easily digested by many making it a great gluten-free option for sensitive guts.

    This recipe came out so good!!! I made a few changes. I used homemade applesauce instead of coconut oil, tapioca flour (was all out of arrowroot). So delicious!

    These muffins were amazing! I made a few changes; I used two chia eggs since I can’t eat eggs, I added two more tablespoons of maple syrup and one tablespoon of coconut sugar ( I like things a little sweeter ;)) and mixed baking soda and baking powder!

    • Meghan

      Hey Rachel! Yep, you can. I just find the arrowroot gives them a nice texture 🙂
