I cannot resist these which is a surprise because the whole point of them was to make an extraordinary healthy muffin. I made them in muffin tops so as not to have a dense, thick, ‘tall’ muffin; muffin tops take a heavier batter and make them a bit more approachable. However, these are so absolutely, mouth-wateringly scrumptious, it wouldn’t matter if you baked them in an old pair of Nike running shoes. You can also substitute Splenda for the sugar and agave syrup for the honey and maple syrup (in which case, add ¼ teaspoon maple extract to retain the maple echo). A small amount of quinoa offers 15% of your daily iron intake.
