Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

Cook quinoa in milk and water according to package directions. Allow to cool.

Rehydrate cranberries by soaking in boiled water for ten minutes. Toast almonds in a dry pan until golden.

Mix flour, sugar and baking soda in a large bowl.

In a small bowl mix yogurt, vanilla, egg and egg white.

Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine.

Fold in grated carrot, toasted almonds and rehydrated cranberries.

Place mixture into muffin tins and bake at 350 until a toothpick poked in the center emerges clean. For me, this was about thirty-five to forty minutes.
