Quinoa recipes are a must-have these days, what with the surge of people who are realizing the immense power that the ancient grain holds. As such, this bittersweet chocolate cupcake recipe replaces standard flour with the more health-conscious quinoa flour.
Quinoa flour is made essentially the same way that regular flour is made and can replace several instances of the stuff in ingredients throughout many cookbooks. However, it can come at a higher cost and isn't as accessible as it should be; with that said, it can be found at local health food stores or can be scoped out online.
This quinoa recipe uses the stuff to make cupcakes that are much more health-conscious not only because of the flour, but also due in part to the replacement of sugar with stevia, which is a far healthier alternative.
