1 Baked Apple-Cheddar Quinoa Balls

Saturday, January 18, 2014

BBWow, these are so delicious, and they are baby-approved! 

I came across this recipe by recommendation from one of the moms in my mommy group. Turns out it's from the Little Grazers blog: http://littlegrazers.com/apple-and-cheese-quinoa-balls/

I made our own today. I adjusted it slightly for American measurements. I also misread the cooked-quinoa amount and used the entire yield from 1 cup of UNcooked quinoa. But it worked out great. 

You'll need:

Yield from 1 cup of uncooked quinoa (so, cook 1 cup of quinoa according to package directions.)
2 medium Pink Lady apples, grated and squeezed of excess water (save the juice for a yummy drink!)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 beaten egg
olive oil or coconut oil
1/2 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven to 350F. 

Combine all ingredients and mix in a bowl. Portion out into balls.  I used a measured scoop. Brush with some melted coconut oil or olive oil.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown!

Devour! They taste like Cream of Wheat (which I absolutely love) with a hint of apple sweetness and cheddar.  So good!
