  1. How many muffins does this make? You say “a muffin pan”, but they come in 6-hole and 12-hole sizes.

  2. 3 stars
    Interesting recipe! I substituted honey for maple syrup, homemade plain applesauce for yogurt, and coconut milk for milk to make these dairy free for a friend with allergies. The texture turned out great, not too dry which is easy to mess up on for buckwheat. Flavorwise these are very much not sweet muffins, they almost have more of a cornbread kind of feel to them. I’ll probably have them with jam and butter or as a side to a meal with gravy. Nice to see a easy dairy free gluten free recipe!

  3. Hi, these look great. I don’t suppose there is any way of avoiding yogurt of any kind in this recipe? I think I’ve gone into the realms of dreams, but hey; if you don’t ask, you don’t know!

    PS: I’ve only just found your website, but it looks amazing. So many delicious looking recipes, without relying heavily on almond flour. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much! In this particular recipe, I believe using applesauce or coconut cream would work as a suitable replacement! If you try it, I would love to hear about it! Thank you again for the kind words. 🙂
