Thanks for the easy to follow recipe. The first time I made it, the taste was great but my muffins had a weird look. The next time, I added cocoa powder, coconut flakes and a few chocolate chips! Wonderful! Thanks again. I will now continue to enjoy GF Buckwheat muffins on a regular basis.

Currently I am on a Candida diet and can't have any sugar, dairy, wheat, or fruit. I substituted grated zucchini for the apples and put a pinch of stevia in the wet ingredients. Also, instead of honey for the spread I mixed the coconut oil with some cinnamon and stevia. This is the most bread-like thing I've had in almost two months, and it's given me great ideas!! Thanks for posting!! Keep creating!!

I used whole buckwheat flour because of its high content of D-chiro-inisitol (DCI), which is apparently helpful for women with PCOS (like me), and subsituted a banana for the egg, which I think really helped with texture and to make them just a bit sweeter. They're kinda ugly but they taste pretty amazing! I also used unsweetened soy milk instead of almond milk, and added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Super! And I used just plain coconut oil without honey for the spread. I might add a 1/4 cup more flour next time, they're somewhat wet.

I am on a no sugar, no gluten, no dairy, no fruit diet. These fit the bill for "acceptable". They were wonderfully textured and pleasant. I am sure with the spread mentioned they would be great (sugar makes everything better! *sigh*). Thanks for an alternative recipe with which I can enjoy muffins for the duration of my diet!

I really like the texture of these muffins (unlike most wheat-free muffins I have tried). I used agave nectar in place of honey due to Dr's orders, and rice milk instead of almond because that was what I had. I've been eating them without the spread so I think I might add dried cranberries or maybe some frozen blueberries next time. I will definitely be using this recipe as a base because of the texture. Yum.

I thought that this was really good. I found that I had to add more almond milk, though, to make it wet enough. If you are looking for a normal, sweet muffin, this recipe is not for you. I wasn't, however, and this was just what I wanted. Side note for anyone using coconut oil for the first time: there is no difference between virgin and extra-virgin coconut oil. But there is a big difference between regular and virgin oil. Healthwise, it's better to go with virgin/extra-virgin.
