Apple and Quinoa Bites

Apple & Peanut Quinoa Bites

Makes 10 mini muffins

2 cups cooked quinoa (here regular quinoa is used but our tricolour gives the same result)
2 tbs chia
¼ cup hot water
¼ cup peanut butter
¼ cup coconut syrup
½ tsp baking powder
1 apple- chopped into small chunks

Mix all ingredients together until sticky, mixing through the apple chunks last.

Pack the mix into small silicon muffin trays (easiest to remove) and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes at 180 degree c until the tops are golden and crisp. As an alternative option you could flatten into cookies like the chocolate quinoa cookies later in this book.

Other options: Substitute the peanut butter with almond or cashew butter and substitute the apple for pear or mango adding vanilla or cinnamon.
