Quinoa Flour Fudgy Muffins

Quinoa Flour Fudgy Muffins – The Prune Filling added to the batter make these Muffins Fudgy.

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, pumpkin, pecans, and walnuts are the ingredients I have used with good results.
