These muffins are adapted from a Nourishing meals recipe found in their amazing "Nourishing Meals" cookbook.
These muffins are absolutely delicious and even if you are not avoiding gluten, dairy or eggs you will still enjoy them. They use buckwheat flour which is rich in flavanoids, Vitamin C and magnesium. Buckwheat typically has quite a strong flavour but it blends really nice with the banana and walnut.
