Double Chocolate Banana Quinoa Muffins

Servings: 24 muffins
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups mashed bananas about 4-5 large bananas
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (add with bananas)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small mixing bowl mash bananas until smooth, set aside. I find it easiest to use my hand mixer.
In a large mixing bowl sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix in sugar, quinoa, eggs, and mashed bananas until batter is completely smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
Grease muffin tin, I use coconut oil.
Fill each muffin tin 3/4 full. Set in oven and bake for 16-18 minutes. If you make mini muffins bake for 12-14 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan 3-5 minutes.
Remove muffins from tin and serve.
If you are storing these for later use, I place them in a sealed container. I also found that my kids loved these when cold, so I store them in the refrigerator.
