Banana Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins

Here is a GF/CF, medium sugar, high protein muffin. Quinoa is also high in calcium and iron. To lower the sugar, cut out the chocolate chips, but they make the muffins taste so much better. The walnuts also add a nice flavor and texture, but you can omit them if you desire.
