These Skinny Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins are packed with flavor and taste despite being made with quinoa and other wholesome ingredients. The batter contains a flax egg made from water and flax meal combined with a mashed banana and non-dairy milk to bind the dough. Instead of all-purpose flour, these muffins contain a mix of oat flour, quinoa flakes and almond flour which are much healthier substitutes. The muffins are sweetened with maple syrup, vanilla, spices and pumpkin puree.
