Today we talk a super fun spin on a classic flavor. In the form of these banana bread quinoa muffins!
We have banana bread (the classic flavor!), plus quinoa (the fun twist!), and together they join forces in these sassy, delicious and nutritious baked treats!
I mean really, who knew that baking could be just so darn fun.
So. Let’s discuss how these muffins go down. We start with a standard banana bread base, filled with cinnamon, nutmeg and of course plenty of banana. It’s naturally sweetened with some honey and maple syrup, and infused with a good amount of vanilla.
And then, then we have that hint of something special! From quinoa flour! It gives the muffins a touch of that nutty, earthy flavor that we know and love from this whole grain.
But wait. It gets better. We finish the muffins off with a crumb topping – for that extra boost of cinnamon sugary sweetness. And I think we can all agree that crumb toppings make just about anything a little bit better! <— In case you can’t tell, I am very into crumb toppings at the moment!
The muffins bake up with a beautifully domed top, a gorgeously golden hue and well, just make the whole house smell fantastic.
And when you enjoy them warm from the oven while sipping a steaming mug of coffee? I promise they will make just about any day even sweeter!
