Quinoa Protein Bites

A great snack for a healthy protein hit.  These little bites are delicious chilled and on the go.  I’ve made them with a high quality ham but if you preferred you could swap this out with any meat of your liking – cubed chicken breast or flaked salmon.

How to cook:

  1. Boil the quinoa for around 15-20 mins until cooked through then leave to cool. Be careful to not over cook, quinoa works best when there is still some ‘bite’ to it.
  2. Pre-heat over to 180°c  fan / 200°c electric / gas mark 6
  3. In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon mixture into fairy cake paper cases and bake for 15 mins or until golden and crispy on top.

Enjoy.
