I'm slowly attempting to change my diet. So of course one of the fads right now seems to be quinoa! I bought my very first bag of quinoa today at Trader Joe's and decided to dive right into the world of Quinoa.
Today I want to do a berry quinoa muffin bite. Basically I've been looking for a quick snack that I can eat on my way from work to my evening workouts. Stopping at Burger King for a dollar burger just doesn't seem like a smart idea anymore!!
My muffin tin is for 24 lil muffin bites. Since I had so much quinoa I kind of guesstimated how much quinoa to use.
I put in 2 cups Quinoa, healthy pour of Egg white mixture (got this at Trader Joe's thought this was just egg whites then saw it's 99% eggs or something, next time I want egg whites only!!), teasopoon of baking soda and teaspoon of vanilla extract, a good helping of blue berries and then I noticed some blackberries in the freezer so added those in for good measure. Oh and of course some Agave Nectar for some extra sweetness!
Somehow I actually managed to measure out the exact right amount for the muffin pan!
I plan on taking some of these to work with me so I'll have a quick energy snack before the Chick's Night Fun Run at Fleet Feet followed by Girl's Night Out.
Voila! Send me your favorite quinoa recipes! I'm ready to try some more!!!
