Quinoa, Almond and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I was very intrigued by this recipe because of the fact that it uses cooked quinoa in a muffin. The recipe did not call for chocolate chips but I felt that they were necessary. I got this recipe from my roommate's cookbook... so this is a vegan recipe! The only notable difference is that there is no egg. I guess vegans use ground flax seeds instead. I also got to grind some almonds for this recipe (in, of course, a food processor). To cut to the chase, these are pretty good. It seems like they fall apart easily though. I'm still trying to make a muffin that has that crisp texture on the top of it, without using a pound of butter. I will continue to search.
