These delicious and moist quinoa spelt muffins, adapted from Martha Stewart, are an ideal breakfast on the go or for a post work out treat. They are healthy, protein packed, and refined sugar free. Use regular quinoa if you don’t have the black variety.

  • 120 g Black quinoa, rinsed
  • 240 ml Water
  • 240 g Refined spelt flour
  • 0,6 g Pure stevia extract powder (or 180 g sugar)
  • 1+1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 60 g Raisins
  • 60 ml Olive oil
  • 180 ml Milk
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. In a medium saucepan, bring quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until water has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pure stevia extract, baking powder, salt, raisins, and 300 grams of cooked quinoa. Reserve any leftover quinoa for another use.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, milk, egg, and vanilla extract. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, and stir just until combined. Divide the 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 the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. | © 2014 | | © 2014 |
