  1. Yum! I gotta get my hands on some quinoa flakes for sure!! 🙂

  2. would this work in an oven (or rather mini toaster oven)? How long to bake, you think? 350F? Thanks <3

    • I’ve never owned a mini toaster oven so I can’t be sure if that’ll work or not. If it works like a regular oven, I’d say you can bake it anywhere from 20-40 minutes, or until the surface of the muffin springs back when tapped. Hope this works out for you! 🙂

  3. Just made it-I added ground cardamom instead of cinnamon – ! I never thought that Quinoa could taste so delicious ! Thank you for sharing the recipe
