I’m on a buckwheat flour kick at the moment. I’d had a bag of it in my pantry for a while and figured I had better get round to using it before it goes out of date.
Well, I have been missing out all this time. I love baking with this flour!
Admittedly, the buckwheat does have a strong flavour that tends to blend better with more earthy flavours (such as chocolate) and doesn’t taste like your typical white wheat flour in any respect. But it’s not a bad thing.
Do you bake with buckwheat flour? What sort of recipes do you like to use it in?
I also have some whole buckwheat which I’ve heard makes fantastic risottos, so stay tuned for that!
These muffins are:
- Dairy-free & eggless
- Free-from refined sugars
- 85 g (1/2 cup) buckwheat flour
- 50 g (1/2 cup) ground almonds or almond flour
- 4 tbsp arrowroot powder, or tapioca flour
- 4 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 80 ml (1/3 cup) coconut oil, melted
- 80 ml (1/3 cup) maple syrup, or agave nectar
- 120 ml (1/2 cup) boiled water
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 100 g (1/2 cup) dark chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F and line a cupcake tin with 6 muffin cases.
- Stir together the dry ingredients (buckwheat flour, ground almonds, arrowroot, cocoa powder, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda)
- In a separate small bowl or jug, mix together the coconut oil, maple syrup and boiled water.
- Stir the wet into the dry and mix until smooth.
- Stir in the dark chocolate chips.
- Divide the mixture between the 6 muffin cases. The mixture should reach about 2/3 way up.
