Cranberry Quinoa Muffins

Saturday, November 14, 2015

Quinoa is my new favorite grain!! A 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa contains 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and 10% your daily requirement of iron. Plus it's yummy!!

Now that I can get a pound of quinoa for only $4.99 at Trader Joe's, I finally have the opportunity to look for recipes incorporating this delicious superfood. When I found a recipe for cranberry quinoa muffins, I knew I had hit a homerun (with a few tweaks, of course).

For the recipe, please follow the link to my "other" blog:

    I love most things quinoa. Spark has a great recipe for quinoa pomegranate salad that I have made as part of my Thanksgiving dinner the last couple of years. The muffins look delish, will have to give them a whirl.

    I've never tried quinoa, but I love muffins so this might be the time to do it. Will have to see if I can find it when I shop again and give it a try.
