  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup banana mashed
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 passion fruits I used seeds as well
  • 2 tablespoon yogurt I used coconut yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Take a mixing bowl and mash the bananas using the potato masher or fork. You can blend the bananas to get the fine paste.
  • Add flax seeds powder and water to the mashed banana mixture.
  • To this mixture, add coconut sugar and coconut yogurt. You can use any plant-based yogurt or regular yogurt.
  • Now add coconut oil and passion fruit pulp from 2 fruits. You can add passion fruit juice alone as well. Seeds will give the crunch. 
  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly so that sugar dissolves completely. Keep the mixture aside.
  • Add buckwheat flour to the sieve, and place the sieve on the plate or another mixing bowl.
  • To the flour, add baking soda and baking powder.
  • Sift the flour and mix it well. Add salt to the flour mixture and mix it again to incorporate it well.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients in three parts and mix it well.
  • The final batter will little think and will flow like ribbons.
  • Take a muffin tray and line it with paper molds. I don't have a muffin tray, and I will use a regular baking tray and use silicone mold for muffins. Fill the batter in mold up to 75%.
  • Bake the banana and passion fruit muffins for 30 minutes at 180 degrees C.
