Plum and quinoa muffins


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350° F) set to fan. 
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and slowly add the sunflower oil, whisking at the same time. 
  • Add the milk, the vanilla extract, and the icing sugar, whisking constantly.
  • In another bowl add the almond flour, the quinoa flour, the baking powder, the salt, and mix with a spoon. 
  • Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ones and whisk until you get a thick batter. If it’s too thick, add a little more soy milk. 
  • With a pastry brush, grease a 6-cup muffin pan with sunflower oil.
  • Sprinkle the muffin cups with quinoa, making sure that it sticks onto the sunflower oil, and flip them over to remove the excess seeds. 
  • Cut the plums into thin slices.
  • Divide the muffin batter among the cups and place the plum slices on top of the mixture. 
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the muffins cool on a rack, for about 20 minutes. 
  • Serve.
