No time for breakfast? Need a healthy mid-day snack? Pop a few of these tasty morsels in the microwave for 40 seconds or eat them cold, either way they’re a fantastic finger food with plenty of protein.

You can make a few batches and refrigerate some for later, they’ll keep in a closed container for four days.

    I tried them tonight. My first use of Quinoa. They are great. Even my daughter thought they were yummy with an interesting texture.
    A great snack. Going to making these often.

    Back to work… I got writing to do.

    Do you think I could use cooked ground turkey/chicken?

    Tracy, any cooked meat will do.
