Get the recipe here now:
Preparation time 30 Minutes
Baking time 30 Minutes
Servings 12 Muffins
½ cup of rolled oats (gluten-free is optional)
2 tablespoons of buckwheat flour
½ cup of plant based milk
1 banana (very ripe)
7 dates or figs, soaked in water overnight
2 small stalks of rhubarb
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of almond butter
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 tablespoon of flax seeds
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
(Alternative: there are some vanilla sugar mixes available – organic ones with raw sugar are awesome to replace it).
2 tablespoons of your sweetener of choice
- Cut the rhubarb into small cubes and set aside.
- Mix the rolled oats, the flaxseeds, the chia seeds, baking powder, buckwheat flour, vanilla and cinnamon in a blender and make flour out of it. Set in a bowl.
- Preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius.
- Add the almond butter, the banana, the sweetener, and the plant based milk.
- Chop the dates in small pieces (maybe the most exhausting process of the whole recipe) and add them to the cake mix. Mix all with a hand mixer or a spoon. You want a batter type consistence. Not too liquid, not too sticky. Mix now the rhubarb cubes under.
- Pour the batter into an oiled muffin pan (but also use papers) and place two tablespoons of batter into each form.
- Bake for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
- Enjoy when it cooled down a bit!
- Rolled oats and oats in general pacify Vata and Pitta Dosha, their taste is sweet.
- Buckwheat is pacifies Kapha because of it´s dry ingredients, the taste in sweet and pungent, astringent.
- Flax seeds are oily and gooey and support our digestion. It pacifies Vata and Pitta.
- Chia seeds are sweet and gooey and so also very Vata and Pitta friendly! They are also full of nutrients!
- Rhubarb is a tri-doshic veggie! It pacifies all Doshas and is very detoxing!
- Bananas pacify Vata and Pitta as well, because there are so gooey and heavy, they are not perfect for Kapha Dosha!
- Dried Dates are pacifying Pitta because of their heavy, dry and cold qualities, but the taste is sweet, which is nice for Vata. Dried figs (but a bit less) are pacifying all three Doshas.
- Almond butter gives the taste here. It is heavy and oily and so perfect for Vata and Pitta!
