Savory Quinoa Muffins (GF)

I love all of the healthier, gluten-free muffins... especially these savory ones made with quinoa! These are perfect for any meal or snack!


  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup red onions, finely chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup tomatoes, diced

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

  • 1 tsp. chili powder

  • 2 chives, finely chopped, for garnish

  • 2 cups salsa, for serving

Instructions: Cook quinoa according to package directions. Prepare muffin pan with nonstick baking spray.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa with remaining ingredients, except chives and salsa; mix well to combine.

Transfer quinoa mixture to prepared muffin pan. Using a tablespoon, fill each muffin cup to the top, then using a spatula, press down on the mixture to create a flat surface.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside to cool for 15 minutes.

Using a teaspoon, gently remove quinoa muffins from the muffin cups.

Transfer to a serving platter; serve with a sprinkle of fresh chives and a side of salsa for dipping.
