Chocolate Buckwheat Cupcakes

I have noticed that there seems to be a lack of cupcake recipes on Cupcake Kat. This is something I hope to correct because I do love cupcakes. I think I just make muffins more as they are like cupcakes but for breakfast.

Here is a great cupcake that even I doubted would taste good but you can be rest assured that they do. They are gluten free, vegan, sugar free, and oil free!

The buckwheat gives them a chewy and wholesome texture so without icing they make acceptable breakfast cupcakes (yes I just said that)

Chocolate Buckwheat Cupcakes

1/2 cup buckwheat flour
2 tbsp sorghum flour
2 tbsp rice flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tbsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1/2 cup mashed banana
2 tbsp water
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine buckwheat flour, sorghum flour, rice flour, cocoa powder, ground flax seed, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl
2. In a small bowl whisk together mashed banana, water, agave syrup, and vanilla until well combined
3. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just combined
5. Stir in chocolate chips
6. Bake for until firm on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean

I used the frosting from here

Do you have a tumblr? I recently made a foodie tumblr where I reblog and post (mostly) healthy desserts! If you want to see some delicious food check it out


  1. That looks SO good! What an incredible recipe, Kat! :D How many cupcakes does one batch make?

  2. Thanks Kathleen! I made some mini cupcakes and some larger ones. I think I got 6 of the larger and 6 small. So I would say around 8 depending on the size your tin.

  3. been meaning to try baking with buckwheat but i was skeptical of the outcome but these look delicious! i love breakfast cupcakes ;)

  4. Great looking cupcakes, thanks for a new recipe to try. Just love buckwheat.

  5. I am drooling looking at these. I've never used Buckwheat but I think I need to now.


Your turn!
