Ingredients for Buckwheat Muffins
- Buckwheat Flour: My preference is to use freshly ground buckwheat flour. I do this by grinding raw buckwheat groats into flour in my blender. You can also use regular buckwheat flour.
- Almond Flour/Arrowroot Powder: Add lightness and a nice texture along with the buckwheat flour.
- Coconut Sugar/Maple Syrup: A combination of these 2 natural sweeteners works great in this recipe.
- Shredded Apple and Carrot: Adds some healthy goodness and moisture to these muffins.
- Walnuts and Raisins: For texture and flavor!
How to Make Buckwheat Muffins
Making buckwheat muffins is easy! You’ll start by mixing together the wet and dry ingredients separately.
I like to use a large glass measuring cup for the wet and a medium glass mixing bowl for the dry.
Next, you’ll add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix to combine. Stir in the walnuts/raisins when the batter is almost mixed and fold in until no dry streaks remain.
Scoop the batter into a lined muffin pan. Then bake until fluffy and set!
- I like to use these muffin liners for gluten-free muffins.
- This is my all-time favorite muffin pan.
Can I freeze these muffins?
Yes! These buckwheat muffins freeze great so I always like to make a double batch. I recommend letting the muffins cool completely then transferring to a resealable bag for storage.
To reheat: Wrap a frozen muffin in a paper towel and microwave for 15-20 seconds.

Best muffin we ever tasted.
I’m so honored! So glad you enjoyed them! 🙂
What can I use instead of almond flour?
Unfortunately the almond is really key for the texture of these muffins! But you could try using 3/4 cup gluten-free 1:1 baking flour in place of the almond flour. I hope this helps!
Is there a way to sub oil for maybe banana or applesauce? I’m not eating any oil at the moment.
I just made these…followed to the letter with the exception of coconut oil…used avacado. I doubled the recipe. Delicious!!!!! Perfect breakfast to go with my coffee. Thank you so much for this recipe!
Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I can’t eat eggs so I used “flax eggs” and I was out of raisins so I used blueberries. They were delicious and guilt free.
That’s great to know these muffins work with flax eggs! Thanks for letting me know 🙂
What can I use instead of tapioca starch or arrowoot? I cannot get those where I live 🙁
You can use cornstarch or potato starch!
I recently discovered your blog and was very excited to find your grain free flour blend as i was on a journey to find a flour blend using buckwheat. My question is can this blend be used in the various bread recipes cited in your blog?
The best gluten free muffin! Perfect for on the go breakfasts.
