Quinoa Apple Bites

Happy Autumn everyone. It's that time of year again when there are apples and pumpkins everywhere and I love it. Always trying to come up with a new recipe for them. These little bites are kind of like apple oatmeal which was always my favorite growing up. I put a new spin on them by adding quinoa and baking them. 

Here are some benefits of eating apples. 
- Helps with asthma
- Protects your bones
- aids in lowering your cholesterol
- Helps in preventing lung, breast, colon and liver cancer
- Helps manage diabetes
- Alzheimer prevention

With all of these great benefits, why wouldn't you eat an apple a day!!!

Here is what you will need to make these bites. 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
1 cup of cooked quinoa
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 veganegg - I used #FollowYourHeart
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsweetend applesauce
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1 cup finely diced apple of your choice

Put everything in a large bowl and mix it up. Get your mini muffin pans ready by either lightly oiling them or use paper liners. Use your cookie scoop to put about 1 1/2 scoops of the batter into the well of each muffin cup. Press them down to make them compact. You should get about 24. Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes depending on your oven. 

If you have oiled your pans, let the bites cool for about five minutes once they are out of the oven. Then run a knife around the edge of each bite. This will help with removing them.

I would suggest storing them in an airtight container in the fridge. I really do not know how long they will last because they are all eaten up the same day I make them. Everytime!!!
