Vegan Blueberry Quinoa Muffins

My little man just started pre-school and I am trying to make him very healthy lunches (I will start posting his lunches to give you mommies out there some ideas). I messed around in the kitchen today and came up with these blueberry quinoa muffins. They turned out very delicious so I thought I would post the recipe. ENJOY!!!!

  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup blueberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a non-stick 12-cup muffin tin.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the almond milk and ground flaxseed.  Allow to sit for 1 minute, then whisk in coconut oil,  brown rice syrup and vanilla.
In a separate large bowl, sift together flour, coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until just incorporated.  Gently fold in the cooked quinoa and the blueberries and mix until only the large lumps are gone.
Pour into the prepared muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
