Quinoa flour muffins for the B-day boy!

Thursday was Mathieu's birthday and at his work there's a little tradition: the birthday person is the one bringing the cake.
He wanted to bring muffins, and to make those special, to bake them himself. I just supervised him and play the chef in the kitchen " a little bit more of this, a little less of that" :-)
Almost zillions of muffins popped out of the oven, and none came back. Mission accomplished!
A mystery ingredient was added to the classic muffins batter: quinoa flour (easy to find at your favorite organic store). It added a malt taste to them that makes your palate travel to the Incas country.
