Sourdough Buckwheat Muffins

Susan Feliciano


I'm feeding my sourdough starter today - and having to "discard" half the mixture before adding fresh flour and water. So I threw together these muffins using the discarded starter, and some Buckwheat Pancake mix.

The story behind this one -
My dog is very old and ailing, and he has trouble eating dog food. So for treats we give him baked goods, and he loves muffins with oats in them. So this is something the family can enjoy and the dog can also eat.

2Stir together the wet ingredients and sugar in a large bowl. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until almost blended. Do not over-stir.
At this point, if the batter is not as thick as muffin batter should be, just add some more oats.
