Sweet Potato Bites: Quinoa and almond flour muffins

Posted on June 13 2013

If you are looking for a new way to lighten up your baked goods but are tired of using standard whole wheat flour, then I recommend giving quinoa flour a whirl. Quinoa flour is high in protein and iron, gluten-free and goes great in many baked goods. I created some muffins using quinoa flour and almond flour (recipe below) and the result was delicious! This muffin recipe does have a strong quinoa flavor so I consider it more to be a base. Feel free to add in nuts, goji berries or fruit for additional flavor and nutrients! Quinoa flour and almond flour muffins gluten-free, makes 12 muffins Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups quinoa flour 1/2 cup almond flour 1 cup almond milk 3 tbsp coconut oil 2 large egg whites 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon cinnamon 1/4 cup maple syrup 1/4 cup water Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lightly grease a muffin pan or use muffin liners.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl mix your quinoa and almond flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon until well blended. In a smaller bowl, mix your coconut oil, egg whites, maple syrup and water.
  4. Fold the wet mixture into the dry mixture and continue to blend until the batter is wet and sticky.
  5. Gently place spoonfuls of batter into the muffin tins (be careful not to fill too high) and place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
