Savory Sweet Quinoa Muffins

Here’s a hearty mini-muffin that’s great to serve with dinner, brunch or to enjoy as a snack. I considered naming these Kitchen Sink Muffins, since I filled it with so many flavorful additions…everything but the kitchen sink 🙂

The flavors here are savory and sweet, with salty bacon, fresh herbs, spiced apples and cheesy nutritional yeast. Cooked quinoa adds texture and heartiness that make these little muffins really enjoyable!
