I love making mini paleo muffins for my kids because they're the perfect size for small hands, portable (fit nicely into the stainless steel lunch boxes we have), and don't take too long to bake.
Speaking of which, these buckwheat pumpkin muffins were loved by my kids - gobbled up in record time.

How to Make Buckwheat Pumpkin Muffins
This is an easy, one-bowl pumpkin muffin recipe. You'll need one medium-sized mixing bowl, a whisk, spatula and mini muffin baking pan. I have a silicone mini muffin pan which works great for this recipe, as the muffins pop right out after baking.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. This includes the buckwheat flour, coconut flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda and salt.
Next, mix in the wet ingredients. These include the pumpkin puree, water, maple syrup, avocado oil and vanilla. Whisk the batter until smooth, then let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
Grab the mini silicone muffin pan and scoop 2-3 tablespoons of batter into each muffin slot, making 14-16 miniature muffins. The muffin slots should be filled to the top (see photo).
Place the muffins on the middle rack of the preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 20-22 minutes. After baking, let the muffins cool 5-10 minutes in the pan, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
These muffins are moist and preservative free, so best kept in the fridge. They will last at room temperature for a couple days, but up to 10 days in the fridge.
