Quinoa Flour Oatmeal Banana Muffins

Quinoa flour has a strong aroma, to me it smells earthy, and taste earthy. Some say its aroma gives off a grass like smell and taste a little bitter.

I found when using quinoa flour its best to use ingredients that can compliment the earthy taste. Ingredients like cinnamon, bananas, maple syrup, bacon, oatmeal, chocolate, pecans, and walnuts are the ingredients I have used with good results.
