I didn't use quinoa flour, instead I added about 1 1 /2 cups cooked quinoa. I used walnuts, also added about 1/4 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips, and the sweetness was just right

Ingredients

1 cup whole-wheat flour
½ cup quinoa
flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
4 tablespoons maple syrup
or to taste
¾ cup buttermilk
4 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup quinoa
cooked
½ cup pecans
chopped

Directions

Position the rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃). Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray or brush with oil.

Sift together whole wheat flour, quinoa flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

Add the eggs, maple syrup, buttermilk, canola oil and vanilla in a large bowl, and whisk until well blended.

Stir in the flour mixture until just incorporated, then fold in the cooked quinoa and pecans until well mixed. Spoon into muffin cups, filling each ⅔ to ¾ full.

Bake for about 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and transfer onto a wire rack. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes, then remove from the mold and let cool on a rack completely.

Serve or store at an air-tight container for a couple of days, or they can be frozen well.

I have been baking up a storm this morning. These muffins were out of the oven just a while ago. I absolutely adored them, they were delicious, moist, wholesome and great for breakfast.

I didn't use quinoa flour, instead I added about 1 1 /2 cups cooked quinoa. I used walnuts, also added about 1/4 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips, and the sweetness was just right.

If you looking for a muffin recipe that's tasty yet packed with goodness, this is the one!
