Quinoa banana muffins

These quinoa banana muffins were a huge surprise. I’ve been meaning to make some muffins using cooked quinoa for a long time, and I finally got around to it tonight. I was inspired by this recipe, but I made quite a few changes, and I wasn’t at all sure how they would turn out. Luckily for the whole family, the end result was delicious. I’ll try not to eat them all before the kids wake up tomorrow!
