Oh my gosh these Chocolate and Coconut Granola Bites are absolutely delish!!! They are super easy to make and you can easily switch the ingredients to fit your dietary needs. Why on earth haven’t I made these before?
Did I ever mention that I’m a snacker? Alright, a huge snacker! I like to think it’s because I exercise a lot and work up an appetite, but no, I really just love to eat. Since I am constantly snacking on something I need to make sure it is healthy, and these quinoa pizza bites do the trick. You can add any of your favorite pizza toppings, which makes these a great appetizer for parties.
1 cup quinoa, cooked
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, save extra for topping handful fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
Cook quinoa according to package directions, let cool for a few minutes.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients and mix well.
Scoop into muffin pan and press until flat on top.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until nice and brown. Take out of oven and let them cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the muffin pan, otherwise they will fall apart.
Top with fresh grated parmesan cheese and serve with side of warm marinara sauce.
