Soar Higher With Helpful Improved Healthy Muffins
Ready for some wonderfully delicious buckwheat apple muffins?
Baking with buckwheat is a super healthy way to start your morning. Remember our soft homebaked buckwheat bread? Since it has a low glycemic index your body takes longer to digest it. These yummy morning muffins will fuel your body all morning long. By slowly releasing glucose into the blood stream you won’t have a morning crash leaving you drowsy at that 10am meeting. Plus, you’ll be less apt to grab a mid morning donut in the lunch room.
Do note, buckwheat carries an earthy flavor. Adding applesause and shredded apples to these muffins help tone that down. We have swapped out the white sugar for brown giving these muffins a sweetened moist texture. Using VeganEgg in place of regular eggs is the perfect exchange. Notice the amazing oats and cinnamon aroma. Next time, I may add chopped nuts or another dried fruit to change things up. For other amazing buckwheat recipes download Kitchology’s Eat.Better app.
