Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins

By September 26, 2013 Breakfast, Recipe Box, Snacks, Sweets & Treats

I still can’t believe Summer ended Saturday. 2013 is going by way too fast.

After my 3 month escapade earlier this year to Europe and South America and my 4 month job search, 2013 is leaving me feeling blessed and unsettled at the same time. Like many others, I’m on the search for a job that leaves me fulfilled and grateful at the end of the day. And although I haven’t quite landed the job I want just yet, I’m finding that where I am now is a great start. Given a situation, you create your own experience. Good, mediocre, bad. I’m creating a good one here in Illinois for the time being.

Packed with blueberries and pumpkin, these muffins are a sweet farewell to Summer and warm welcome to Fall. Let’s treasure the past and remain optimistic about the present and future.

Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins

1 cup quinoa flour (use a coffee grinder to grind up quinoa and oats into flour – or use whole wheat flour)

1/2 cup oat flour

1 tsp each of baking soda and powder

2 TBS cinnamon

1 TBS nutmeg

3 TBS flax meal

1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

1/2 cup brown sugar

3 TBS maple syrup

1 cup blueberries

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

– Combine wet and dry ingredients separately. Add the dry to the wet and mix thoroughly.  

– Oil your muffin tin or use liners, and scoop mixture into each well, about 3/4 of the way full.

– Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until done. 

*These muffins are pretty dense.
