Gather all your seeds and fold them into these yummy and gluten free 1000 seed buckwheat muffins
Buckwheat flour is milled buckwheat which is actually a seed and not a grain making it naturally gluten free. I’ve used Buckwheat groats in porridge, Buckwheat flakes in granola and buckwheat flour in crepes.
The flour has a strong almost nutty taste to it which works wonderfully with tons of seeds. This muffin is more wholesome than most. Apple sauce is used to replace most of the oil and it is packed with seeds and flaxseed meal for a crunchy texture. The only negative is that it still does contain quite a bit of sugar. As the flour is quite strong tasting, these muffins don’t come out tasting overly sweet at all. Perhaps next time I will try to reduce the processed sugar by using more dates blended into a more natural sweetener. Either way they are a wholesome and filling muffin.
