    kelly in TO's Note:

    I know, actual cooked quinoa IN the muffins... but really give them try, it's great way to add some whole grains into your diet. It's also best to make sure you cook the quinoa well so that it's not too moist and sticky.

      I made several changes to this recipe to make them dairy, egg and gluten free. To my delight, they were DELICIOUS! I used a gluten free all purpose flour + 1/2 t xanthan gum in place of the flour. I used flax meal as an egg replacer ( Flax Vegan Egg Substitute ), rice milk in place of the buttermilk, and oil in place of the butter. I also used pecans in place of the seeds due to personal preference. I find quinoa to have a strong taste that sometimes turns me off. To my surprise, the pumpkin and spices really helped to subdue the quinoa. I also really enjoyed the texture that the quinoa added to the muffins. The middle was soft and moist while the quinoa on the outside became toasty and crunchy. Yum! I just loved these muffins. This is a must try!
