Sometimes Mondays are just the worst, especially Mondays when you go to bed mentally going through your mile long to-do list that seems to be growing by the minute. Today is that kind of Monday for me. Ugh. And although I can’t say that these delicious, quinoa and chia packed muffins will magically make the to-do list disappear, they will at least provide 15 minutes of happiness along with my morning coffee. One small win.
Now let’s talk muffins. These muffins have a healthy base of cooked quinoa, whole wheat flour, bananas, and chia seeds. To that we add some simple ingredients – an egg, almond milk, some brown sugar for sweetness (can be omitted), and baking powder. Some time in the oven and the end result is a dense, rich, filling muffin packed with healthy ingredients. Although I haven’t tried it yet, I imagine you could substitute applesauce or pumpkin for the bananas or substitute one banana with 1 cup berries.
