Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cups mashed banana (2 to 3 bananas)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (or your favourite baking oil)
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup hemp seeds
  • ⅓ cup chopped dairy-free dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips, cacao nibs, or a combination

 

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 190ºC and grease or line 9 muffin cups (unless you are using silicone muffin cups; they work best ungreased).
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the buckwheat, tapioca, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a mixing bowl, blend the banana, oil, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla until relatively smooth with just some small banana lumps remaining.
  • Fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.
  • Stir in the hemp seeds and chocolate.
  • Divide the batter between the 9 muffin cups, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until slightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Let cool or eat straight away
