8. Bake for 20 minutes. Muffins are done when they pass the toothpick test.

9. Cool for 10 minutes before enjoying.

 

These muffins are moist and don’t keep long in a hot summer kitchen so eat them with in a few days of baking (or freeze). I would have liked a crunchier top to these muffins. Next time I make them I might pull back on the milk a bit.

They went over well with my family. The Buckwheat gives them a hardy, earthy flavor, and the Strawberries give them a kiss of sweetness and freshness.

These muffins are NOT Vegan.
