Golden Quinoa Muffins

22 Mar

I have a couple bags of quinoa in the cabinet, and I never know what to do with the stuff. I’ve made quinoa with mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and kale and it was really good, but I really wasn’t in the mood for that. So I was looking at the package and noticed a recipe for these muffins. Since I had most of the ingredients and for the rest I had reasonable facsimiles, I decided to try them out.

These muffins are not too sweet, so once you get over the initial surprise of that, they are quite tasty. Max liked them, but Jasper was a little iffy. So maybe the preschooler set isn’t the right demographic for these, but an older kid or a grownup will enjoy them.
