We tried a few recipes from this book. Here is a recipe for the Spiced Pumpkin Quinoa Muffin that my teenage daughter enjoyed making, for which she added some slightly cooked cinnamon apples and sprinkles.  

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup liquid honey
1 egg
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/2 cup cooked quinoa

Bake in a preheated 350F oven.

Combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. 

In another bowl whisk together the brown sugar, honey, egg, yogurt, oil, and vanilla. Stir in the pumpkin and mix well. Add the dry ingredients and the quinoa to the wet mixture until just combined. 

Scoop the batter filling 2/3 to 3/4 full into a standard muffin tin lined with paper liners. This recipe will make 12 muffins. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until the centres are set and tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before transferring the muffins to a cooling rack.
