Yesterday afternoon I kinda miss my oven. Lately, I'm very excited to make a healthy breakfast. So I just eat my overnight oatmeal with various toppings. But, I really miss to use my oven and make some bakedgoods. I wanna make something different which is healthy, vegan and I can keep it in the freezer for emergency breakfast. I remember one of my friends on IG once said that quinoa's also delicious in Muffin. OK! I decided to make some vegan quinoa muffins. I looked into the refrigerator and food storage cabinet. "Argh~ I run out of soy milk" ... Sadly, I couldn't make it vegan. =( The only dairy that I found in my refrigerator's a bluberry yogurt. So I decided to use it and make some "Eggless Whole Wheat Blueberry Yogurt Quinoa Muffin" (WOAH~ The tittle is too long, isn't it? hahaha...) Fortunately it turned out soo good. I didn't put any sweetener on my muffin. Because I thought the applesauce itself is sweet enough.
Eggless Blueberry Yogurt Quinoa Muffin (Whole Wheat)
serves : 4
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup blueberry yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup quick cooking oat
3/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
a little bit vanilla
Optional : sugar or maple syrup to make it sweeter.
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Butter 4 ramekins and set aside.
2. In a large bowl whisk together applesauce, yogurt, oil, and vanilla. Sprinkle the quick cooking oat on top
and set aside.
3. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar (If using) , and quinoa.
Add this mixture to the wet ingredients and gently mix until just combined.
4. Fill each ramekin three quarters full. Sprinkle the top with more quick cooking oats (or raw sugar). Bake
for approximately 25 minutes until the muffin starts to brown. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan and turn on to
wire racks to cool completely.
Suggestion : Eat warm, slathered with good butter, fruit jam, or peanut butter. Or freeze for breakfast. ENJOY~! ^^
