Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins

I like to think my Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins are the perfect Fall snack.

If you haven’t noticed I really have a thing for blueberries. I have buckwheat flour on hand for crepes and I got to thinking what else can I make with this flour?

Muffins came to mind because they are always a hit in my house. My family says yes to my muffins! And for this recipe, it’s definitely the streusel that brings the flavor to the next level.

The Healthy Muffin

There are nutritional benefits to eating Buckwheat. Though you hear the word “wheat” buckwheat is gluten free, rich in fiber, and can reduce your blood sugar. Buckwheat is considered a whole grain.

How to Avoid Baking Dry Muffins

I have to say the number one secret to having moist muffins is what kind of wet ingredients you use. Such as coconut oil, eggs, sour cream, greek yogurt, milk, apple sauce, etc.

Texture is Everything

I have made a lot of muffins in my days both regular, gluten free and vegan. But before creating this recipe, I did some research on buckwheat flour because I was worried about the texture. Come to find out it is best when it is mixed with another flour to avoid the grittiness. Blending different types of gluten free flour definitely helps with texture. With gluten free baking, it is important to make sure the ratio of flour to wet ingredients is good.

Buckwheat flour is also really good when mixed with whole wheat flour, however it wouldn’t be gluten free.

For this muffin recipe, I use a mix of all purpose gluten free flour and almond flour.

You will want to store these in an air tight container or heavy duty ziplock bag for up to 3 days. They also freeze well. To reheat, just pop them in the microwave for 45 seconds.
