This is a recipe I came across in a book about 15 years ago, and over the years I have modified it so much that its a favorite that no one else seems to be able to make! Its a healthy, tasty, gluten free option for dessert or snack time.

Oatmeal or Coconut (optional)
In This Recipe
Soak the quinoa in lots of water for 3-5 minutes. Then wash and rinse quinoa few times to get fully rinsed (or it will have a bitter taste).
Bring quinoa and 1 1/3 cups of water to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low for 8 minutes.
Turn off heat and leave covered for extra 8 minutes. Then fluff quinoa with a fork and set aside to allow to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Grease muffin pans (24) or 2 x 8" cake pans.
Mix the milk, eggs and vanilla. Add 2 cups of the cooked quinoa, honey and butter and blend until really smooth, no chunks (works real good with food processor).
Mix brown sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt in bowl. Add to liquid mixture, blend for 1 minute.
Put batter into muffin tins or cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean. Let cool down, then enjoy!!
