Nice muffins, with a delicate cakelike texture and nice buckwheat flavor. I didn't have any cherries, so I used some dried blueberries and cranberries instead which worked well. These are amazingly moist considering that they are quite low in fat. Though I love buckwheat and baked goods made with buckwheat, the flavor seemed to be a little odd... not bad, just a little different. Overall, we enjoyed them. Thanks!
These were pretty good, if a teeny bit bland. The dried cherries didn't add as much to the flavour as I was expecting.
These are very tasty muffins, and the fact that they're healthy and low-fat is an added bonus. The buckwheat flour makes them very filling and the cherries give them a nice sweet taste. I think next time I would add even more cherries, and there will most likely be a next time!
