These deliciously sweet and savoury quinoa bites are a taste of fall. The ingredients include vegetables of the season that are not only so good for you but combined taste great. The perfect healthy snack recipe!

I’ve been talking a lot lately about living a healthier lifestyle. Spending more time on myself and making sure that my body, mind and soul are feeling refreshed and refuelled.

Sweet and Savoury Quinoa Bites Recipe | Foods to Strengthen your Eyes

Considering what foods I am eating and reflecting on how they make me feel afterwards has been a focus of mine for the last 8 weeks. I started my workout journey, had my eyes recently examinded and set some goals to better self care.

It’s pretty cool how the things we eat can change and enhance different parts of our bodies. Like our eyes for example, there are so many foods that can strengthen our eyes and it’s so important to consider cooking with these foods to make sure we are absorbing those nutrients.

Sweet & Savoury Quinoa Bites Recipe

“Full of nutritious autumn ingredients like apples and butternut squash, these quinoa bites are delicious. If you feel like sharing with your family, they are perfect for introducing your little one to finger foods. They hold together well in your hands and fall apart easily in your mouth.”  –Love Child Organics

Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 cups of cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup grated butternut squash
  • 1 medium sized apple, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 small onion, minced
  • 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons raisins or cranberries (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried powdered sage (optional)
  • 1 egg

Directions

Step One: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper

Step Two: Grate apple, once finished bring it all together and squeeze out the juice. (Squeeze it into a drinking cup, put it in the fridge and you have fresh squeezed juice for later too!)

Step Three: Mix together drained apple and all other ingredients. Mix until fully combined.

Step Four: Create 1 inch round balls and place an inch apart on the baking sheet.

Step Five: Bake in the oven until the sides start to darken. About 15 minutes.

These quinoa bites will last for several days in the fridge and are best served at room temperature or slightly warm. Enjoy your new healthy snack recipe for breakfast or any time of day!

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada
