Quinoa Cranberry Muffins!

Happy Tuesday guys!!

So yesterday I was on the hunt for a fabulous muffin recipe!

When I found this one, it totally screamed to me because it uses whole quinoa.


You’ll have to go here to find the recipe but the changes I made were…

I used 1/2 cup red quinoa and 1/2 white quinoa

took out the oat bran (because I didn’t have any!)

used vanilla unsweeteed almond milk instead of soy

Used 2x chia eggs instead of the egg replacer!


For some reason, this recipe made 18 muffins (she mentioned 8)! I was happy with that though! And I also had to cook them quite a bit longer than mentioned (maybe I did something wrong!!!!) 

They were very tasty… but make sure you like quinoa before you make them haha

The hubby may have grabbed one and then spit it out (he’s not a fan of quinoa though!)


Great recipe though!  I will make them again for sure!


On another note, it’s officially SPRING!


and I finally have the time to play in it!


Freedom from school feels sooooo good!


Have a great day!!
