Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins

zemmy

"Moist and delicious, I came up with this recipe for my young vegetarian daughter because it is high in protein, fiber, vitamins, and good fats. It has been a hit with everybody who's tried it. Makes a great breakfast, after-school snack, or addition to a kids lunch. These muffins will be moist in the middle."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper muffin liners.
  2. Spread quinoa onto a baking sheet and toast in preheating oven until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour toasted quinoa into a blender and pulse until the quinoa has the consistency of cornmeal.
  4. Stir ground quinoa, pumpkin puree, milk, water, whole wheat flour, flaxseed meal, egg, honey, coconut oil, walnut oil, chia seeds, cinnamon, baking powder, ground ginger, and salt together in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Rest mixture until chia seeds and flaxseed meal absorb some moisture and soften, about 15 minutes.
  5. Ladle batter into prepared muffin cups to about 3/4 full.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 30 to 40 minutes.

These muffins are delicious! I stuck with 1c almond milk and no water and increased the honey to 1/2 cup. Doesn't make 24 full muffins, probably because of the liquid reduction, might be better ...

I think there is too much pumpkin in this recipe. It came out really dense and did not raise at all and I even added more baking powder. If you look at the pumpkin & milk vs flour (quinoa & wh...

Add an extra egg and 3/4 cup of honey, syrup, or sugar. That's the key. (I use organic maple syrup from Costco in baked goods... it's cheaper and very delish!) I also added some brewer's yeast...

I follow the recipe exactly and they turn out 1) bitter and no sweetness at all 2) the cupcakes were not slightly firm even with long cooking time (I left them 45 min they didn't rose)
