I know that people are all, "Muffins are just an excuse to eat cake for breakfast" at the moment but seriously, they don't have to be. Although these are are not the most glamorous muffins you ever cracked eyeballs on, they are simple and delicious and more importantly, they are packed full of nutritious bits and pieces that won't go to your ass, so give them a break or just give them a bash next time you have some left over Quinoa taking up space in your fridge. 

2 cup cooked quinoa, cooled
2 medium bananas, peeled and mooshed
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
1/3 cup raisins
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Butter and flour one 12- muffin pan
2. Grab a large bowl and chuck together the mooshed bananas, eggs, yogurt, honey and vanilla essence. Mix to combine.  Add in the quinoa, raisins, pecan nuts (if you have any other seeds like sunflower seeds, linseed, whatever seeds you would like to add, go ahead, there aren't really any rules here).Combine all the ingredients and put to the side.
3. Sieve the dry ingredients over the quinoa mixture and fold together until everything is just combined.
4. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

  1. I will be trying this one out. It sounds delish! I've ordered the ingredients and I will report back on how it goes. It'll be the first time baking in my new kitchen. :)
