Chocolate-Orange Buckwheat Muffins
The buckwheat provides a subtle nutty flavor to these fluffy, slightly sweet, chocolate-orange muffins. I love the crumble topping on these! These are great quick muffins to have on hand for to-go breakfasts.
- Serves: 12 persons
- 2cups gluten-free flour, divided
- ½cup buckwheat flour
- 1tablespoon baking powder
- ½teaspoon kosher salt
- 2large eggs
- ½cup whole milk
- ½cup fresh orange juice
- ⅔cup packed dark brown sugar, divided
- ¼cup canola oil
- 1½ teaspoons grated orange zest, divided
- ¾cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
- 5tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
Step 1Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a 12-cup (2 1/2-inch) muffin tin with paper liners.
Step 2Whisk 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and set aside.
Step 3Whisk eggs, milk, orange juice, 1/3 cup brown sugar, oil, and 1 teaspoon orange zest in a medium bowl until combined. Add egg mixture and 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the flour mixture; stir until just combined. Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each with about 1/4 cup.
Step 4Whisk remaining 1/2 cup gluten-free flour and remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar together in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips and remaining 1/2 teaspoon orange zest until just combined. Crumble about 2 tablespoons streusel mixture over each muffin.
Step 5Bake in the preheated oven until a wooden toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan, place on a wire rack. Let cool completely, about 1 hour.
