Double Chocolate Raspberry Quinoa Muffins

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups cooked, cooled quinoa (lightly spooned into the cup)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup flaxmeal
  • 4 - 6 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar (or sucanat)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries


Preheat the oven to 350 F and spray one 12-hole and one 6-hole muffin tin with cooking spray.

Put the quinoa, vanilla, egg, olive oil and milk in a handi chopper or food processor and process till mostly smooth. There will still be some bits of quinoa in there ... that's okay.

Pour the blended mixture into a medium mixing bowl and stir in the buttermilk. Add the flour, flaxmeal, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt & cinnamon and stir just until everything is mixed together well.

Gently stir in the chocolate chips and raspberries. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (aside from the melted chocolate chips).
