Quinoa Raisin Muffins
I made these last week and I LOVE them. They have over 5 grams of protein! That's because quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a wonderful grain which is extremely high in protein. I eat it ALOT lately - half a cup - with a meal. It's kind of like a fluffy couscous but so much more nutritious. And It's also more nutritious than most grains like brown rice, etc. To be able to eat it in a muffin at breakfast is so fun. Like cheating! And it's amazingly filling. I have one (sometimes with some fruit or some yogurt) at 5AM before my first class and honestly, I am not hungry for hours. You can find white whole wheat flour at the grocery store. I used whole wheat pastry flour and they came out very light - like a corn muffin. I am thrilled to have found this recipe!
Combine oil, brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir dry mixture
into wet mixture and combine well.
