"Moist and delicious, I came up with this recipe for my young vegetarian daughter because it is high in protein, fiber, vitamins, and good fats. It has been a hit with everybody who's tried it. Makes a great breakfast, after-school snack, or addition to a kids lunch. These muffins will be moist in the middle."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/4 cups
1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
This certainly didn't turn out how I hoped. I might have done something wrong, but they turned out hard and bitter. I was disappointed with the results. As others have said, the muffins never rose, even with longer cook times.
I liked the taste of this muffins, however I must say I did some changes after reading the reviews. First I reduced the milk to 1 cup and no water at all, then I added 3/4 cup of flour instead of a 1/2 , added a 2tsp of baking powder and 1 cup of honey instead of 1/2 so they are a bit sweeter. My family loved them and so did I.
Definitely will make them again!
I think there is too much pumpkin in this recipe. It came out really dense and did not raise at all and I even added more baking powder. If you look at the pumpkin & milk vs flour (quinoa & wheat) ratio it seems like you need more flour but the batter was the right consistency as muffins. Maybe less pumpkin and it would be a good recipe. I also added a lot more sweetener to it & it still is not sweet enough (Yeah I like my muffins like cupcakes). Even dark chocolate chips would be good too!
