Muffins are great for feeding hungry mouths at the end of the day, or between meals when a high-sugar snack would not give you the same lasting sustenance. Flaxseeds (linseeds) are a source of essential Omega 3 fats, and soluble fibre, and they work well used ground in baking because their goodness is impossible to detect.



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Pour the buttermilk into a jug (pitcher), and beat in the oil and eggs.
  2. Sift the quinoa flour into a large bowl, then stir in the ground flaxseeds, baking powder, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and raisins.
