Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups reduced-fat Bisquick
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. 2. Rinse quinoa (to remove any bitterness). Combine 1 cup water and quinoa in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; fluff with a fork, and set aside.
  3. 3. Combine Bisquick and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine milk, molasses, and egg in a separate bowl, stirring well. Add milk mixture, quinoa, and apricots to dry ingredients; stir just until moist.
  4. 4. Spoon batter into two 12-cup muffin pans coated with cooking spray (leave two cups empty in each pan), filling cups half full. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes. Remove from pans immediately; cool.
