So the Quinoa craze continues, and its no surprise why. This superfood is incredibly versatile, high in protein, low in calories and its gluten free! Seriously though, I eat Quinoa for breakfast lunch and dinner and always love finding a new way to make a snack with it. These little guys are full of flavour, packed with nutrients and are great for a grab-and-go snack.
– 1.5 cups of cooked Quinoa -1.5 cups of Quick Oats
– 1.5 cups of chopped organic Apple (I like Gala Apples) – 1 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon
– 1 tsp of Nutmeg – 3 tbs of Coconut Sugar (you can use brown sugar if you prefer)
– 2 tbs of Real Maple Syrup – 2 Eggs (beaten)
Preheat your oven to 375.
Combine quinoa and quick oats. In a separate bowl combine cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Stir into the quinoa and oat mixture.
Add eggs, maple syrup and apples.
Grease a mini muffin tin with coconut oil (I like the flavour it gives but you can use a cooking spray or butter if you like.)
Fill the muffin tin with the mixture. I find it easiest to use a tbs to fill them, that way they are all even. *(the mixture should make 2 tins worth)*
Pop the tin(s) in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Let cool and enjoy!
** I found they stuck a little bit to the sides when trying to pull them out. If you are having trouble as well just slide a knife softly around them in the pan and they should come loose**
