muffins to flex for! ~banana quinoa muffins

These muffins are absolutely phenomenal! I got the recipe straight off the back of a Shiloh Farms bag of Quinoa Flakes. Quinoa is packed with protein, so it makes a great protein snack or dessert.

2 mashed ripe bananas
2 T grapeseed oil
1 egg
1/2 cup almond coconut milk or milk
2/3 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup rice flour
1/2 cup shiloh quinoa flakes
1/3 cup organic cane sugar
1 3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine bananas with wet ingredients, mix well. Mix dry ingredients in another bowl. Combine mixtures until combined but not too much. Spoon batter evenly into approximately 12 muffin liners. Bake for about 16 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

I was at Barnes and Nobles today, where I could not stop staring at the blueberry muffins and I just had to go home and add blueberries to this recipe. Oh man did it do the job!
