These healthy and delicious quinoa mini muffins are a great make ahead breakfast option. Or enjoy for dessert. Quinoa is a great source of iron and protein, so there is nothing to feel guilty about when indulging in these treats!
So I’ve been on a bit of a quinoa kick lately. Did you know that quinoa has tons of vitamins and nutrients? Plus, when compared to rice, it’s lower in calories and a LOT lower in carbs. Quinoa is such a versatile grain that can be used in a variety of dishes and meals. Don’t limit yourself to using quinoa as solely a side of grain to your meals. It can be used in desserts such as this one. Or in salads, such as this Asian Quinoa Salad. Or even as a binding agent, like in these Quinoa Stuffed Peppers. Plus, quinoa is gluten free, making it a suitable and delicious choice for people with gluten intolerances.
Now back to these scrumptious quinoa mini muffins…
This dessert is quite simple to make. Mix your dry and wet ingredients separately. Then combine together (without over mixing) and pour the batter into your greased muffin trays. I filled my muffin trays almost to the top, since they won’t rise a whole lot. Bake and enjoy these quinoa mini muffins with some homemade strawberry jam, cashew butter, or plain!
These muffins also freeze very well, so go ahead and double the recipe if you’re so inclined. 🙂
