Quinoa Whole-Wheat Muffins

About a year ago, I was introduced to quinoa by a friends' of my husband.   Quinoa has a light, fluffy texture when cooked, and its mild, slightly nutty flavor makes it an alternative to white rice or couscous. It's high in iron which is why I decided to try it.

I've cooked it as a rice and also as oatmeal.  The texture is more like oatmeal.

After having a rough day at work, I knew that I had to bake something.  Since I had quinoa at home, I decided to bake something with it and found this great recipe in "The Bread Bible".  Cool book by the way!!!
