Quinana Muffins {Quinoa Banana Muffins}

Last week, I made these muffins to go along with our Leftover Soup.  They were tasty, easy to make, and a great way to use up ripe bananas.  The recipe is from a cookbook that I refer to often called Forks over Knives, it has plenty of practical and easy recipes.  Quinoa is delicious and an interesting addition to the muffins.

I pureed the bananas in my Blend-tec, along with the wet ingredients.  I didn’t have any applesauce, so I used an extra banana.

The Quinoa goes in last.
Easy, healthy, yummy muffins.

    I didn’t see any eggs. I think I will try these but instead of adding spelt flour, I will just use eggs. TFS!
