Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins
This recipe has 10 ingredients. It takes a total of 1 hour, 25 minutes of which is prep and makes 12 muffins. Obviously I made one major modification to this recipe. While I loved the idea of quinoa muffins, my boys and I aren't big raisins fans. So instead of raisins I substituted chocolate chips. I also used closer to 3/4 of a cup of chocolate chips, I love anything with lots of chocolate. Since I don't have a dishwasher and find cleaning muffin tins to be tedious, I chose to use muffins cups instead. There are some great muffin cups available now and they look great when served. My overall baking time was slightly longer than the recipe suggested and I turned my pan 90 degrees halfway through baking to ensure even browning. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
I don't think these muffins lasted more than a day in my house. They were delicious and I love that they are full of whole grains. My oldest son has fallen in love with quinoa and loves it in waffles, cereal, cookies, pretty much anything that I can bake. This recipe was very easy and the addition of chocolate chips was perfect. I would definitely make this recipe again.
