If you were to ask me what my number one snack is that I make for my kids, it would definitely be muffins. I LOVE making muffins! I can’t even count the number of muffin recipes I have posted on this blog. Every time I go to make one, I am surprised there is another combination of flavors I haven’t tried yet. The other day I had some bananas that needed to be used and some leftover, cooked quinoa from a different meal. Quinoa is so good for you, I thought it would be fun to try and add it to a muffin recipe. The combination was super moist and spongy. I loved the flavor and texture of the quinoa and the banana together. These muffins taste like a healthy breakfast in muffin form. I doubled the batch and have frozen these muffins for a quick, breakfast on the go for my kiddos. Hope you enjoy!
