These Muffins may look like regular muffins but they are not your standard wheat-flour, butter-filled sugar-laden muffins.
Using wheat bran, buckwheat and quinoa flour as the alternative flour-base and bananas as natural sweetener, these dense and moist Buckwheat Quinoa Banana Muffins are higher in fiber and protein, which make them healthier and more nutritious than regular muffins.
With coconut flour and coconut oil, these muffins also bakes out with a nice aroma. I definitely enjoy a dense, hearty, healthy and delicious muffin anytime. How about you?
Note: As alternative flour base, oil and sweetener are used here, these muffins are unlike those soft, fluffy, and light muffins made from whole-wheat flour/enriched flour, butter and sugar.
