 Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Bites

INGREDIENTS
*yields about 26 bites

1 cup cooked quinoa

1 cup quick oats, uncooked

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 cup chopped apples

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) In a large mixing bowl, add your cooked quinoa and quick oats. In a separate smaller mixing bowl, combine your cinnamon, nutmeg and sugars and then add the spice mixture to the quinoa and oats. Then add the maple syrup, apples and eggs and mix until just combined.

3) Spray your mini muffin pan (24 count) with non-stick cooking spray. Make sure to spray the top of the pan as well. The quinoa bites will overflow out of the cup a little bit, so you don’t want the tops to stick.

4) Fill each muffin slot with 1 tablespoon of the mixture and bake for about 15-20 minutes.

Oh yummmm – these were like little hearty mini muffins packed with deliciousness and nutritiousness – the best of both worlds!

I have never had quinoa and have no idea where to even find it in the store. Is it with pastas?

 My family doesn't like it, but I hear lots of people that do. It's near the natural whole grains in my store, on the same aisle as pasta and rice.
