Iron - Rich Vegan Muffins



Introduction

These are gluten free, naturally sweetened and nutritionally dense muffins with a light crunch from sunflower, chia and flax seeds and a nutty note from cooked quinoa. If you don't like the banana in the recipe, use 1 cup of pure pumpkin puree instead - it will be a delicious switch-up!
