Daniel Fast Pumpkin Spice Quinoa Muffins (DF, GF)

As with all Daniel Fast muffins, since you can not use any leavening agents (baking powder or baking soda),  they do not rise like "regular" muffins - resulting in a denser muffin.  

My co-workers REALLY liked these.  They liked the spice flavor.  One co-worker thought these may be her new favorite muffins !!!!  One of my co-workers took a couple home to her kids, and they thought they were good also!!

1/2 cup Oat Flour
1/2 cup Corn Flour
1/2 cup Tapioca Starch
2 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 and 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/3 cup date syrup 
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup cooked Quinoa 

Mix the bananas, vanilla, pumpkin, date syrup, applesauce and quinoa in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin PanCasabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop  is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
