Set your oven to 180ºC and line a muffin tray with coconut oil. In a large bowl, sieve your buckwheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add your oats and cooked quinoa to your dry mix along with the chopped almonds and pumpkin seeds.

In a separate bowl, mash your bananas. Add your coconut oil, water or plant-based mylk, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and vanilla essence. Whisk together until well-combined.

Mix your wet and dry ingredients until well-combined. Try not to overmix. Distribute your mix in your muffin tray. You should have 6 good-sized muffins. Bake at 180ºC for 30 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out dry.
