New Veggie Recipe: Cheesy Quinoa Bites Recipe
THANK GOODNESS for meal planning. Not only does it keep me from melting into a pile of tears when I’m too hungry and can’t find anything to eat, but it also keeps me from emotional eating!
I am STRESSED to the max. More stressed than when we were buying a house AND planning a wedding at the same time? Yep. More stressed. I can’t get to the gym fast enough, because I need that sweat and those sweet, sweet endorphins.
AND I am a huge emotional eater. Two years ago, this stress would have sent me down a bag of french fries and into a block of cheese. But I know that I do this; I am aware. Plus with a meal plan, I already knew what I was going to eat for supper last night.
Packed with protein, fiber, and veggies, these little bites bring the flava’ while being the perfect size for dippers!
I found the recipe for these babies on Pinterest here. I followed it to the letter, except I subbed the flour with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oat Flour.
If I had had GF All Purpose on hand, then I would have used that but I’m all out.
I also added 1/2 cup more carrot than the recipe called for.
This is my new veggie recipe of the week, so I wanted to amp it up.
I baked the bites in this handy….thing-a-ma-jig:
It’s a Flexible Silicone Mini Brownie Bites pan that I found at Michael’s. Truthfully, I had bought it to make jello shots in!
It was nice because once they were finished, I could just pop them right out! But the above pan is not mandatory. You could use a muffin tin too. Just make sure you grease them!
And yes, you guessed it, they re-heat beautifully!
Are you an emotional eater? What’s your go to food and how do you resist?
My resistance:I am off to the gym to sweat it up!
