Quinoa Apple Breakfast Bites

Sharing is caring!

Have you tried quinoa yet?  If you haven’t, you really should!  It’s such a healthy grain, it’s a good source of quality protein and it’s a good source of fiber.  So what better way to start your day than with these delicious little quinoa apple breakfast bites?

These little bites of goodness are super easy to make.  You can even make them ahead of time and then in the morning just pop a couple into the microwave for 15 seconds and breakfast is done!  The protein and fiber will help keep you satisfied until lunchtime and they taste great.  The quinoa is a little nutty and the apple adds some crunch and sweetness.  To further add sweetness and flavor I added some real maple syrup along with a little cinnamon.  DELICIOUS!!

Quinoa Apple Breakfast Bites

Makes about 24

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 apple, chopped into small pieces
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

Put all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl.  Stir until well combined.

Scoop mixture into prepared pan.

Bake for about 12-13 minutes, just until set.  Do not over bake!

Cool slightly before removing from pan.  Eat immediately or store in the refrigerator for later.  If eating later, reheat in the microwave for 15 seconds.

I would love to make these for my toddler but we are trying to limit his sugar intake. Could I omit the maple syrup? Does it have a purpose, other than flavour? Thanks!

I just made these muffins. It took on the perfect form. Unfortunately it is lacking flavor. Very bland. Do you have any suggestions to add additional flavor without using dairy products?

Starla, you could try adding a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg to see if that adds some additional flavor. I hope this helps!
