Quinoa & Sweet Potato Muffins with Caramelized Onions.

Savour the moments...

I started making these wonderful savoury muffins years ago when my kids were little. I was knee deep in my gut healthy recipe search so they couldn’t have come at a better time. 


These muffins are rich, flavourful and can be made with both gluten free flower and spelt flower. They are a refreshing alternative to the classic dinner role, are a nice introduction to new and different flavours and pack nicely in a lunch. 
Enjoy 😊

1/4 cup bone/Veggie broth/water (to cook the quinoa)
