These little baked quinoa bites are full of all the flavor of my favorite quinoa patties, but baked, not fried.

  1. These are SO cute — besides looking delicious. I really like how they have that rich color from the veggies in them. Am looking forward to trying them.

  2. Those sound awesome!! I love quinoa too, and I think these will be brilliant!
    Thanks for the conversion chart. I was looking at the instructions going hmmmm…wonder if I could wing it?? 🙂 You saved me!

  3. I believe it’s supposed to be the quinoa that is cooked and then cooled… and the eggs should be raw. I’m guessing the quinoa needs to be cool so it doesn’t accidentally cook the egg before you want it to.

  4. I am measuring 2 cups of quinoa and then cooking which will yield more than 2 cups, right? Or cook less to yield 2 cups total?
    Thanks so much!

  5. Great, thanks! I thought 2 cups then cooked sounded like way too much, but that’s how I read it. Can’t wait to make these. I’m a huge fan of quinoa.

  6. just mixed all my ingredients and realize i only have a regular sized muffin tray – how long should i cook and at what temp (if different)?

    1. I would cook at the same temperature but maybe for 10 minutes longer? Just check the middle with a toothpick to see if they are done. Enjoy!

  7. These are OUT OF THIS WORLD! SOOOOO YUMMY!!! I went with the longer baking time (I live at about 6,000 ft.) and they were SCRUMPTIOUS!!

    1. BTW, it takes 1/2 c. of raw quinoa to make the 2 c. of cooked quinoa for this recipe. However, if I had known how amazing it was going to turn out, I would have quadrupled the recipe!

    2. They are kind of addictive aren’t they Janis? I love that it makes me feel like I am eating something fried and “naughty” when I am really eating something healthy!

    1. Probably Ashley! The muffin tin just helps it keep it’s shape for handling. Just be sure to mold them a little with your hands so they don’t fall apart on the cook sheet. But hopefully the egg will help everything bind together well!
