Healthy Chocolate Banana Quinoa Muffins


Makes 15 muffins

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup organic black quinoa, cooked and cooled
  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with baking cups (you can also use mini muffin tins if desired). Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the bananas, milk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Add the cooked quinoa and stir to combine.

In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa power, salt, baking soda and baking powder. 

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Divide the batter evenly among the muffin tins, filling about 3/4 full. 

Bake for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (10-12 minutes for mini muffins). Remove muffins from the tin and allow to cool on a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
