Perfectly Portioned in Muffin Tin
These breads are the direct product of committing to a year of posting a variety of easy vegan, gluten-free recipes made in a muffin tin. It has led to me blending, stirring and experimenting in ways I would not otherwise have done.
Baking alternative breads in a muffin tin is wonderful for short baking times and perfectly portioned servings.
My initial thought when developing this recipe was to use quinoa, flaxseed meal, walnuts, olive oil, and some everything bagel seasoning I had made, forgotten about, and then discovered again. I put the thought to the (recipe) test, and it was super-tasty, albeit a touch greasy (flax + olive oil + walnuts).
So I pared back. No olive oil. But did I need the walnuts? Or the special seasoning? What if…I only used two ingredients…
I tried it.
If I could do a back-flip, it would have happened, stove-side, after taking my first bite. This recipe is a winner, 100%!
You can top it with hummus:
Or slather with PB & J:
Indulge with your favorite chocolate spread and a few cacao nibs:
And it’s a perfect breakfast with a dollop of nondairy yogurt and fruit:
What I’m trying to say, is that this is bread. And, as such, you can top it with all kinds of healthy, yummy toppings.
Also, I excel at pointing out the obvious. To further emphasize that point, these mini breads are also delectable all by themselves.
How to Make the Breads
I am so excited about this recipe that I have not even mentioned how it’s made. It goes like this:
- process cooked, cooled quinoa in a food processor
- blend in flaxseed meal, water and (optional) salt
- divide the “dough” between 10 muffin tin cups
Just imagine all of the fun variations with this basic recipe, from herbs, spices, seasonings, sweeteners, and more.
Feeling excited? I hope so. I certainly am.
Now go forth, bake, eat, and jump for joy!
