Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I of course wanted to share a delightful recipe for you all to enjoy this February! Especially because I’ve been borderline obsessed with buckwheat flour lately, and I had mentioned to you all that I’d be sharing with you a buckwheat recipe 😉
 
These muffins are gluten-free, dairy-free, and pretty much just wonderful all around. I love making these with raspberries – hence the name – although you can use whichever berries you’d like for these muffins!
 

What is buckwheat?

 
Despite its name, buckwheat is not related whatsoever to wheat. In fact, it’s known as a “pseudograin”. Buckwheat is actually a seed in the rhubarb family! It’s a grain-free, gluten-free nutritional powerhouse that makes a wonderful flour in place of regular wheat.
 
Buckwheat does have its own unique flavour if you’ve not before tried it, so you will notice a bit of a “buckwheat flavour” in these muffins. But don’t fear, and instead, enjoy the process of exploring new flavours and new foods.
