Baked #Quinoa Bites #Recipe

I would like to share a recipe that I found on Pinterest. With permission from the original author, And They Cooked Happily Ever After, I am sharing my first attempt at an apple cinnamon quinoa bite! 

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup uncooked oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3 T brown sugar
1 T sugar
1 T maple syrup
1 cup chopped apples
2 lightly beaten eggs
1/4 tsp real vanilla (my added ingredient)

Preheat oven to 350. Combined quinoa and oats in large bowl. In a separate small bowl, combine cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and brown sugar. Mix in maple syrup then chopped apples. Add vanilla to eggs and thoroughly combine. 

Spray with organic non-stick or grease the mini-cupcake pan with coconut oil (tops too). Using a tablespoon scoop the filling into the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on wire rack. 

I like them. Next time though, I will add slightly more cinnamon and vanilla. Matter of fact, I may even add more apples --- if I can keep them away from the 4 year old! :)
