Delicious Apple and Cheese Quinoa Bites – so good that even the adults will love these
Quinoa is such a fab grain to cook with, it makes a great alternative to other foods like rice or pasta etc.
I love how versatile it can be in a variety of different recipes. If you have never cooked with it before, it is quite similar in size to couscous once cooked, but has a kind of nutty taste that goes well with many other ingredients.
Just how good do these Apple and Cheese Quinoa bites look?
These little apple and cheese quinoa bites are great for the whole family. My little girl enjoys these for snacks or lunch. Perfect on their own or with a dip like this Homemade Tomato Sauce
The apple adds a natural sweetness which really compliments the cheddar. They are so tasty that it is hard to resist popping a few in your mouth before the kids even get a look in.
I often add these Apple and Cheddar Quinoa bites to my kids lunches the next day too, as they are great served warm out of the oven or cold.
These can be frozen cooked, and then just added to the oven for a few mins at about 180c/350f to heat up.

Add quinoa, apple, cheese and beaten egg to a bowl and mix thoroughly to combine.
