Martha Stewart's Quinoa Muffins

I bought a box of Quinoa from TJ's a while back after reading about how nutritious they were. I'd been meaning to try them out and found the perfect recipe from Martha Stewart! I would've NEVER thought of baking it into muffins! Quinoa is SO easy to cook and they sure make awesome and NUTRITIOUS muffins!

Ingredients: (12 muffins)

1 c quinoa
¼ c vegetable oil
2 c all-purpose flour
¾ c packed dark-brown sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ c raisins
¾ c whole milk
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, bring quinoa and 1 cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cover, and cook until water has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, 11 to 13 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, grease or line a 12-cup muffin pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, raisins, and 2 cups cooked quinoa; reserve any leftover quinoa for another use.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, milk, egg, and vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, and stir just until combined; divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

4. Bake until toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool muffins in pan, 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.
