How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350F.
- Grease (or line with paper muffin cups) 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable oil and set aside.
- Mix the cooked quinoa, cornmeal and oatmeal, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
- Grate the oranges to make 2 teaspoons zest and set aside. Peel the remaining oranges and chop. Place the 3 chopped oranges into a large bowl.
- Mix the agave syrup or honey, oil and eggs. Pour into the bowl with chopped oranges. Stir in the dates and orange zest and mix well.
- Pour the orange batter into the dry ingredients and mix until well blended. If batter is too runny (it depends on how juicy the oranges are), add up to ¼ cup more of cornmeal (if so, you can have batter enough to make some more muffins).
- Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn onto a wire rack; best when served cool.
- NOTE: if you want to make them gluten-free, just double the quinoa and drop the oats.
