QUINOA PIZZA BITES

March 2, 2013

Hello! These quinoa bites.

Tasty.
And healthy. I loved them.

Forewarning: if you’re a little less health-nut, check out pepperoni pizza puffs. They’re the classic variety of this healthy version.

But, if you ARE looking for some healthy pizza, keep scrolling.

    Oh dear. I am single, made these and must control myself from eating the whole batch. Delicious. If I rationalize it enough I can convince myself they will be delicious for breakfast and put the leftovers in the fridge right now. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes!

      Haha! You’re welcome.

  • Hi, any suggestions as to how I could replace the eggs? Thanks.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Try ground flax seeds in water.

    Delicious! I only opted for 1 Tablespoon of oregano and 1 Tablespoon of basil. It was still a bit much. I think next time I will go for a teaspoon of each.
