My first time baking with quinoa. I found the quinoa tasted it like it was undercooked. It was hard, crunchy and got stuck in my teeth. It wasn't undercooked when I added it to the recipe. It was like eating hard pebbles in a muffin. Totally ruined the texture. Is this how quinoa muffins taste like or did I do something wrong? Please comment and let me know.
