Instead of oat or bran muffins, try these moist breakfast treats to fuel your morning. Substitute other chopped dried fruit for the raisins, if you like. http://www.marthastewart.com/332607/quinoa-muffins?backto=true

Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Raisin Muffins

1 cup Quinoa
0.25 cup Oil, Vegetable Corn, Salad Or Cooking
2 cup Gold Medal All Purpose Flour
6 oz Pure Cane Sugar, Dark Brown
1.5 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
0.5 cup (not packed) Raisins, Seeded
0.75 cup Milk, Reduced Fat, Fluid, 2% Milkfat
1 large Egg, Whole
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Raisin Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, bring quinoa and 1 cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cover, and cook until water has been absorbed and quinoa is tender, 11 to 13 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, brush a standard 12-cup muffin pan with oil; dust with flour, tapping out excess. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, raisins, and 2 cups cooked quinoa; reserve any leftover quinoa for another use.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, milk, egg, and vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, and stir just until combined; divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

  4. Bake until toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool muffins in pan, 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
