  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, or almond oil
  • 1 1/2 cup plant or animal milk, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 3 tablespoons aquafaba or if vegetarian, use 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange oil, optional {Read the label on your bottle. A little goes a long way.}


  • Preheat oven to 350F.

    Pour into greased muffin tins and bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes or until done


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.
