Quinoa Breakfast muffins

I love the quinoa chocolate cake idea, made by blending cooked quinoa, and decided I wanted to try a savoury version. Very yummy – and so versatile.




you need

2cups cooked quinoa


1/2cup milk of choice

1/2-3/4cup oil of choice (olive or coconut both work)

1/4-1/2cup sugar (depending on your preference)

1 cup flour of choice. (I used GEMS flour)

2tsp baking powder

1/2tsp baking soda

1/2tsp salt

dash of pepper

optional add ons: spices (italian is yummy), diced peppers, ham, bacon, spinach, cheese. the possibilities are endless.  (note if using something with a high fat content like bacon or cheese, decrease the amount of oil used in the recipe)

Put cooked quinoa, eggs, oil and milk into blender and blend until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients, and pour into lined muffin tins. Bake for 20-30 minutes, at 375, or until they are golden. Enjoy!
