Zucchini Buckwheat Muffins with Feta and Dijon Mustard

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

Not only are these easy savoury zucchini and buckwheat muffins ideal for afternoon break, they're great at busting after-school hunger too. They are made with a mixture of spelt and buckwheat flour, so they are much healthier, not gluten free though. Use all purpose gluten free flour instead of white spelt flour if you are gluten intolerant or have a celiac disease. Crème fraîche and olive oil help keep yield muffins that are soft, tender and moist. Add in some walnuts if you want more texture, but these muffins have plenty even without them thanks to the Feta, Dijon mustard and spices.

  • 400 g Zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 150 g White spelt flour
  • 150 g Buckwheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 80 ml Olive oil (or butter, melted)
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 200 g Crème fraîche
  • 2 tbsp Maille Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp Dried oregano
  • 2 tsp Dried garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika powder
  • 150 g Feta, cubed
  1. Coarsly grate the zucchini and place them in a bowl. Add in salt and set aside for 30 minutes. Squeeze as much of the liquid out as possible.
  2. Preheat the oven 200C/400F. Grease and flour a giant 6-cup muffin pan. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add white spelt flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder and baking soda. Make a well in centre.
  4. Whisk olive oil, eggs, coconut sugar, crème fraîche, mustard, oregano, garlic powder and paparika in a jug and pour into the well. Add zucchini and cubed feta. Stir until just combined. Divide the batter among prepared muffin cups.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.

...every summer finding creative ways to use a bumper crop of zucchinis can be a challenge. This sounds and looks great.

David 7/8/21 02:07

Angie, These look pretty healthy but they still look and sound very tasty. Love feta and zucchini. The only time I've every eaten buckwheat has been in pancakes. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

I love zucchini, and zucchini muffins, but I have never had a savory zucchini muffin. These sound wonderful! The combination of ingredients sounds like a real winner, and I love the addition of Dijon mustard.

I'd feast on them like a king! Buckwheat is ever so healthy! People should really replace unhealthy cereals with buckwheat porridge in the mornings, Russians have been doing it for centuries.

Zucchinis make the best baked goods don't they. The feta sounds awesome in these muffins to. A great snack

Kitchen Riffs 7/8/21 17:30

These look great! Muffins are often sugar bombs, and although I like sweet things, I really prefer a muffin like this which is much less sweet. Fun flavors in this -- thanks.

Guess what? I combined zucchini and feta in my turkey patties recently :D So I know these savory muffins will maintain its moisture (from the zucchini) and taste delicious!
