Buckwheat, Oatmeal, and Maple Syrup Muffins

Stacks of Buckwheat, Buckwheat, Oatmeal, and Maple Syrup Muffins drizzled with maple syrup, with glasses of milk in the background

Buckwheat flour, oatmeal flakes, and a touch of maple syrup come together to make these deliciously chewy low sugar muffins. These would be great with a Drink Your…Veggie juice for breakfast, or for lunch or a light dinner alongside some Orange-Infused Carrot Soup. This is an especially good combo if you add the optional orange oil.

Recipe Notes
About Aquafaba

Aquafaba (meaning "bean water") is just the water that your chickpeas float in, in the can. If you buy dry chickpeas and cook them, you can also use the cooking water. You may need to reduce the water (boil it down) until it has a vicious quality, similar to egg whites. There's a whole site devoted to it, if you're interested in learning more.

About Buckwheat Flour 

If you have buckwheat groats and a good blender or food processor, you can grind them into flour in just a few seconds. 

About Orange Oil

This is not the same as orange-flavouring or orange extract, although that would do in a pinch. Orange oil is very intense. Read your label to see how much is recommended.
