Healthy Blueberry Buckwheat Muffins

Today I'm going to show you how to bake a healthy breakfast muffin that is moist, flavorful, and something that the whole family will enjoy. It uses a blend of gluten free flour. almond flour and buckwheat flour.

Let’s get started!

What is Buckwheat Flour? 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.

Let's go over ingredients. 

Ingredients: banana blueberries almond flour buckwheat flour gluten free flour baking powder baking soda cane sugar eggs greek yogurt milk spices for the streusel topping

How to make


In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mash up the banana and add the wet ingredients: greek yogurt and milk. Give it a stir then add it to the dry ingredients along with the eggs.

Prepare the streusel


In another bowl for the streusel, combine the sugar, brown sugar, gluten free flour, spices and the cold butter. Cut in with a pastry blender or use your fingertips to combine. Continue to combine until it resemble coarse meal. Set it aside.

Gently fold 


Gently fold in the blueberries to the batter Divide 1/2 of the batter between the tins. Then add scoop a little of the streusel into the muffin. Fill with remaining batter and then add the other half of the streusel on top.

Bake for 20 minutes


Remove from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!

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. – Ensure the wet ingredients are properly measured. – It is also important to make sure you keep the dry ingredients seperate from the wet ingredients until you’re ready to bake. – Make sure your oven tempature is set properly and don’t over bake them. I recommend testing muffins with a toothpick. – After baking, let them properly cool down and also be sure to store them properly in an airtight container. – Use paper liners.
