1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup water
1 banana
1/3 cup honey
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup peanut oil
2 1/2 TBSP chia seed gel*

3. In a large mixing bowl mash the banana with a potato masher or fork. Whisk in the honey, egg, oil, chia gel, milk, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar.

4. In a second mixing bowl combine the flax seeds, all purpose flour, baking powder, salt and cooled quinoa.

5. Stir the liquid mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the blueberries.

6. Scoop batter into the muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes.

7. Once baked store any extras in the refrigerator.


* to make Chia Seed Gel- 1 TBSP chia seeds soaked 10 minutes in 2 TBSP water. If you don't have chia seeds just substitute a second egg
