Chocolate Banana Quinoa Muffins

1 dozen | Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 18 minutes


1/2 cup gluten free all-purpose flour (I used Trader Joe’s)

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup cooked quinoa

1/4 cup chocolate chips

1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 large bananas)

2 large eggs, lightly beaten


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a muffin pan with baking spray (I used coconut oil spray).

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, brown and granulated sugars, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in quinoa and chocolate chips. In a separate mixer bowl, mix mashed banana and eggs until well blended. Mix the banana and egg mixture into the flour and quinoa mixture. Using a standard sized ice cream scoop, distribute the batter into the greased muffin pan. Place in oven and bake for about 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the muffins comes out clean.
