Made with quinoa these muffins are healthy.They bake up nice and are delicious!!

I cup vanilla soy milk
1 tbsp ground flaxsees
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups pastry flour
1/4 cup ground almonds
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2  tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 1/4 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup finely chopped dried apricots or currants (I used dates)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 12 cup muffin tin. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the soy milk and ground flaxseed. Allow to sit for 1 minute, then whisk in oil, syrup and vanilla. In a separate large bowl, sift together flour, almond, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until just incorporated. Gently fold in the cooked quinoa and the apricots and mix until only the large lumps are gone. Pour into the muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the muffin comes out clean.
