Healthy bittersweet chocolate Quinoa Muffins Recipe

 

Ingredients:

 

102g (¾ cup) Quinoa Flour

102g (¾ cup) Sweet White Sorghum Flour

27g (⅓ cup) Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder

13g (2 tbs) Ground Flaxseed

2 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder

½ tsp Baking Soda

¼ tsp Salt

240g (1 rounded cup) Plain Unsweetened Vegan Yogurt (I used So Delicious coconut**)

1¼ cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

1 tbs Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Stevia Extract

 

Directions:

 

•Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray your cupcake tin with cooking spray (or use silicone muffin liners, these cupcakes will stick to paper liners).

•In a small bowl, whisk together the quinoa flour, sorghum flour, cocoa powder, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, instant coffee, and salt.

•In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, almond milk, vanilla extract, and stevia extracts.  Whisk until completely smooth.  Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until the batter is even.

•Scoop the batter into the cupcake tins and bake for ~17-18 minutes, or until surface of the cupcakes spring back when tapped. Let cool in the pan for ~1 hour, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.  Serve and enjoy!  To store, place in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
