Buckwheat, Strawberry + Olive Oil Muffins

You won’t find anyone who loves their Kitchenaid stand mixer more than me. She’s quick, easy and most importantly she’s so pretty.

Sometimes though, and I mean sometimes, I just want to throw together a cake without a paddle attachment. I know, I’m a terrible food blogger.

I was having an anti stand mixer kind of day and my olive oil cake obsession hit breaking point. This collided with so much freaking yogurt in my fridge and the need for something baked for work lunches.

{Wow, I have made this day sound so dramatic, haven’t I?}

The result was these lovely Strawberry, Buckwheat and Olive Oil Muffins.

They of course, require no stand mixer. Just a bowl and a whisk.

They’re a little bit healthy too.

Are you a mix and bake type or do you fancy your stand mixer?

    Gorgeous muffins <3 I don't actually own a stand mixer so I am usually a melt-mix-bake kind of baker. For certain things I will definitely get the electric beaters out though (biscotti and cupcakes!) When I finally acquire a stand mixer though I know it will change my life! Especially for kneading dough. Doing that shit by hand gets really dull, really fast (imo).

    perfect timing, I just broke my mixer (always use the dough hook when making pizza dough!), so I’ll be able to make these until the new mixer arrives. Thanks

    Love these! So pretty and probably pretty close to as healthy as a muffin can get while still maintaining deliciousness 🙂 I know what you mean about stand mixers – they can be a life saver when it comes to making tricky things like creme patisserie or meringues, but my favourite cookie recipe just needs a bowl and spoon – and I love mixing everything together myself!

    This is excellent timing! I’ve been on the look out for healthy muffin recipes. I figure if I have a healthy-ish muffin then I don’t have to feel so bad about essentially eating cake for breakfast 🙂

    Such pretty muffins…and they are healthy..and no stand mixer. Yay! I love recipes where you just throw everything together and they still result in beautiful baked treats like this one.

    I often eye-off my mother-in-law’s Kitchen Aid when I’m at her place in St Kilda…it’s so red and shiny and yes, pretty! But I haven’t taken the leap myself. One day!
