Yum, these are a new favorite of mine!  Great for a quick breakfast, pre/post workout snack, or afternoon snack.  Sweetened only with banana and honey and made with no flour, they’re pretty healthy too!

1/4 cup of flax seed meal

1 tablespoon of cinnamin

dash of nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a mini muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl stir together cooked quinoa, oats, flax seed meal, coconut, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together honey, mashed bananas, coconut milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Once combined, stir into the quinoa-oat mixture.  Mix well.

Use a tablespoon sized scoop to place heaping scoops into the prepared muffin tin.  Top each one with a pinch of additional coconut.  Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned and the bites are set.  Let sit for about 5 minutes, then use a large spoon to remove each bite from the muffin tin. Let cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.  Store in the fridge.
