Ingredients
 1 ½ cups Almond milk (unsweetened)
 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
 1 ¾ cups Buckwheat flour
 2 tsp Cinnamon
 ¼ cup Ground almonds
 1 tsp Nutmeg
 ¼ cup Pure maple syrup
 ¼ cup Unrefined brown Muscuvado sugar
 1 tsp Vanilla extract
Method
1

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a cupcake tin with silicon cupcake/muffins cases (I used two 2×6 muffins tins- like in the photo).

2

In a bowl, combine the buckwheat flour and ground almonds.

3

In a separate bowl, mash together 3 ripe bananas, and then mix in the muscovado sugar and maple syrup. Stir well and then add this to the dry mixture bowl, stirring with a wooden spoon.

4

Then add the almond milk, half a cup at a time.

5

Add the vanilla extract, bicarbonate soda and apple cider vinegar, and mix in until the mixture becomes smooth. Stir in your cinnamon and nutmeg.

6

Spoon the mix evenly between your prepared cupcake cases.

7

With the remaining banana, slice into small circles, and place them on top of your vegan muffins, before putting them in the oven (see picture).

8

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from their cases.

9

Enjoy warm or cool!
