I’m sharing Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins over at Onceamonthmom.com today, adapted from Martha Stewart’s Quinoa Muffins. We went with chocolate chips instead of raisins in this version mainly because I was planning on sharing the recipe on Cravings chocolate day, but a schedule change for Lent meant these were slated from Friday instead of Monday. I think I’d also really like the raisin version, or maybe cranberry, but I’m so glad I tried the chocolate chips because I ended up loving them. I’m not usually a big chocolate person, so I was surprised how much I liked these muffins. But the BEST part of these muffins is they’re chock full of protein because of that quinoa, so the make a really healthy (and fast) pre-made breakfast.
We all loved these muffins. They aren’t too sweet for me (which is rare for anything chocolatey) and they taste great later in the week warmed up with a bit of honey and butter.
