Quinoa Muffins: A Healthy And Protein Rich Gluten-Free Treat


Welcome to the world of Quinoa Muffins, a delicious and healthy treat that will satisfy your cravings without any guilt.


Quinoa, a superfood packed with protein and essential nutrients, is the star ingredient of these muffins, making them a perfect gluten-free option.


Start by preheating your oven to 375°F and lining a muffin tin with paper liners. This recipe makes 12 muffins, so get ready to indulge!


In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of cooked quinoa, 1 cup of almond flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Mix well.


In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.


For an extra boost of protein, add 1/4 cup of chopped nuts or seeds of your choice. Walnuts, almonds, and pumpkin seeds are great options.


Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Let the muffins cool for a few minutes before removing them from the tin. Enjoy them warm or at room temperature, they taste delicious either way!


These Quinoa Muffins are not only a tasty treat, but they are also a great on-the-go breakfast option or a post-workout snack.
