I know how much you all loved my quinoa bites from last year and these cute black rice bites from last month… so I had to make another batch with a unique spin on them. I’ve heard from so many of you that you’re in the mood for more quinoa recipes and healthy meals so I’ve got a great new one for you!
They’re very different from my other quinoa bites.
But still oh so yummy.
I just know you’re going to love them.
I served these cute little Cheesy Cumin Quinoa Bites (that are dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free) to my clients for brunch a few weeks ago and they loved them!
They’re packed with lots of protein and fiber to keep you satisfied. Plus, they’re so adorable you’ll want to pop them into your mouth all day long.
I served these with fresh organic tomato sauce for an afternoon snack, too and they were a huge hit. So, whether you’re looking for a savory brunch, snack or even lunch – these bites are perfect for any occasion.
Many of the moms that I work with like to serve these to their children for dinner because they are so quick and easy to make.
Get ready for a super easy meal (or snack) and have fun. To me, anything that you make in a muffin tin is fun, isn’t it?
Plus, before and after the holidays we’re so busy getting ready that it’s hard to make a full meal – these bites are perfect for a quick dinner this week before Thanksgiving or for next week after the overload of eating on Thanksgiving hits our belly.
Enjoy and I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
