  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour (I grind my own from raw groats; see Notes)
  • 1 Tbsp rolled or quick oats (can also use grated coconut)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • few dashes sea salt


  • 1 large ripe banana mashed well
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
  • Mix in the wet ingredients (you don't have to pre-mix them separately) until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into two well-oiled 8-10 ounce ramekins. I like to split up the batter so that it bakes faster! You could also use a small baking dish and make a smaller loaf, though I'm not certain of the baking time in that case.
  • Bake the muffins for 18-22 minutes, until the tops are springy to the touch.
  • Cool a bit and enjoy!
