quinoa recipe

Morgan from Fit for Success posted this recipe for healthy quinoa pizza bites earlier this year and I’ve been meaning to make them ever since. I finally made them tonight and they turned out way better that I could have imagined.They’re filling and if you dip generously enough they taste kind of like the breadsticks from Pizza Hut. So good!

You can find the original recipe on Morgan’s website, or the recipe with my minor alterations below.

  1. Thanks for the cool recipe. I will try these out. I am wondering if I can make them without the muffin tin?

    • Hey Cyn,
      You could try to roll them into balls and bake them like cookies on a sheet. I’m not sure if it would work out but ‘quinoa pizza cookies’ sounds like something I’d try ;)
