Tips for Making Gluten-Free Cherry Muffins:
Due to the unique nature of buckwheat flour, I do not recommend replacing it with anything else.
The maple syrup can be replaced with honey or coconut sugar.
For sugar-free / no sugar added muffins, replace the maple syrup with a sugar-free sweetener such as this one.
This is a versatile recipe! You can replace or halve the cherries and instead add berries, chopped apples, pineapples or mango. You can throw in a handful of nuts, seeds or chocolate chips for even more flavor and texture.
In a pinch, the apple cider vinegar can be replaced with lemon juice.
These muffins store well lightly covered at room temperature for up to 48 hours or in air-tight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
