world's healthiest muffin

I’ve been baking these muffins quite often over the course of about two years, perfecting the recipe each time. Please let me know if there is a “healthy muffin contest,” because my muffins deserve to enter and win gold medals made out of carrots: they are that healthy! They freeze extremely well, too.  As I made the muffins today, I put half of them in the freezer: they make a wonderful kid breakfast on the go; just add a soft-boiled egg or some yogurt or a nice green smoothie to increase nutritional value.

    Thanks! What about quina flour? Is it just quinoa grains ground into powder in coffee grinder or vitamix?

    • Anastasia says:

      Yes, but I never tried to do it this way: I buy ready-made quinoa flour. Perhaps, it’s time to get the grinder out and stop being spoiled?

  2. Ecomama says:

    Are these the ones made when we came over to play a while back? Super yummy!

    Do grind the flaxseed first? I read somewhere the absorbability is much higher if ground. Your thoughts?

    • Anastasia says:

      Yes! You don’t have to grind the flaxseed, just leave it in a bit of water for about 15 mins. However, you could use ground flaxseed, too. And you can put a grated carrot in there: I’ve done that and it works well. Pieces of dried apricots are yummy, too, but my kid picks them out and throws them out. 🙂
