Ingredients

    Quinoa, 1/4 cup dry
    Oats, 1.5 cup
    **Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 1/4 cup
    *Whole Wheat Flour, 1/4 cup
    Baking Powder, 2 tsp
    Salt, 1/2 t
    Water, 3 T

Directions

Preheat oven to 325. Line muffin tin with cups or spray lightly. Cook quinoa (boil with 1/2 cup water for 15 minutes). Mix 1T flaxmeal with 3T water and let sit for 2 minutes (this acts as egg substitute). Mix all ingredients well. Put into muffin cups and bake for ~20-25 minutes.

    I just have a question. The recipe calls for 1 egg but the directions say that mixing the flaxseed with water acts as an egg substitute. So if an egg is an ingredient, why does the recipe need an egg substitute? - 11/13/12

    That's an optional change. I believe the recipe was calculated with the real egg, and the flax was mixed into the dry ingredients.

    The flavor was good (because of the chocolate!) and I really appreciate the healthiness of this recipe, but it wasn't really like a muffin. Very heavy and gluey. I wouldn't make it again. - 1/19/14

    The chocolate chips in the recipe satisfied the craving that I have had for chocolate every day. It was very gooey and did not come out of the pan cleanly. Still, very good. Best eaten warm. Just had one cold and it was not as tasty. And 14 servings? Really? Who has a 14 cup muffin tin? - 3/11/14

    These were good, but not as muffins. I think they are more like baked oatmeal. They make a nice on-the-go breakfast that is better for you than just muffins. I'm not sure yet if I will make them again. By the way, the above picture is not at all what mine looked like and I followed the recipe. - 5/10/13

    Tasty - but strange texture for a muffin. Probably will not make again. - 6/9/14
