  • 1 c. water
  • 1/2 c. white quinoa
  • 2 egg
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 c. parmesan cheese

Combine cooked quinoa, eggs, diced green onion, minced garlic, shredded Parmesan, chopped cilantro, almond flour, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil in a large bowl. Stir to mix well.

Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each mini muffin spot.
