Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins {Vegetarian}

I'm sharing Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins over at Onceamonthmom.com today, adapted from Martha Stewart's Quinoa Muffins. We went with chocolate chips instead of raisins in this version mainly because I was planning on sharing the recipe on Cravings chocolate day, but a schedule change for Lent meant these were slated from Friday instead of Monday. I think I'd also really like the raisin version, or maybe cranberry, but I'm so glad I tried the chocolate chips because I ended up loving them.  I'm not usually a big chocolate person, so I was surprised how much I liked these muffins. But the BEST part of these muffins is they're chock full of protein because of that quinoa, so the make a really healthy (and fast) pre-made breakfast.

The Results
We all loved these muffins. They aren't too sweet for me (which is rare for anything chocolatey) and they taste great later in the week warmed up with a bit of honey and butter.
