Quinoa Cheese Bites

29 Jul

ImageKeen-whaaaa!?  My husband does not want to eat this stuff!  But I was successful in finding one way that he would eat it right up, and enjoy every last bite.  Quinoa cheese bites! Mmm mmm! BONUS: These are the perfect, healthy, protein rich, finger food snacks for a baby or toddler.  Health Canada now says it’s okay to give babies under 1 year eggs.

Found this gem of a recipe at So Very Blessed


Quinoa Cheese Bites

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (1/2 C uncooked)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 2 stalks green onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper


  • preheat oven to 350 F
  • mix all ingredients together
  • distribute mixture into a greased mini muffin tin, filling each cup to the top
  • bake 15 – 20 min.
  • stuff it in your face!  either on it’s own, or with tzatziki or another clean dip!
