I really was skeptical to whether this recipe would work or not. Batter was very liquid. 2 Tbsps lemon extract?? really. I used black quinoa (leftover, cooked) and processed it and all the wet ingredients in my food processor. They turned out WONDERFUL...exactly as I had hoped. I will admit I used only 2 tsps. lemon extract but more like 1 Tbsp of lemon zest so it was a trade off. Great texture - medium density. Not too sweet which is also what I was looking for. It's 11:45pm and my kids will have a healthy breakfast muffin for tomorrow. Yeah!
