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!!
Wheat, dairy and sugar free is exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you for posting!
These are delicious! Perfect way to satisfy my sweet tooth without having to feel guilty, since they're incredibly healthy!
Mmmm these were very good I actually ate them when they were just out the oven still quite hot and they were yummy. I didn't have almond milk so I used soy milk but everything else was too the recipe I will be using this recipe again it was very good thank you for posting.

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.
