  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Spray mini-muffin pan with non-stick spray and spoon a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each cup, pressing down mixture into each cup as you go.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the bites are firm to the touch and slightly browned on top.

If you find yourself with leftover quinoa mix, try making larger muffins for the adults!
