Baked Herb Veggie Quinoa Bites [Gluten Free]

Baked Herb Veggie Quinoa Bites [Gluten Free]

Quinoa is becoming more and more popular and for good reason. It’s perfect in every way! It’s a hearty seed that tastes like a filling grain. It’s gluten free and you can add it to almost anything; soups & salads, stuffed peppers and it’s always a big hit to all who try it.

My first baked quinoa bite recipe was back in March 2012. I adapted the recipe from one I found on Pinterest. Although I loved it my kids weren’t keen on them. I decided to adapt the recipe even more and this is a newer version I am much happier with.
