Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bites

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.

Ingredients: 

– 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)

Method: 

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**
