Bite-sized cheesy buffalo snacks perfect for the big game!


  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked (I used red quinoa)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp almond meal
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup Frank's hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Bring broth and quinoa to a boil in a medium pot. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer (covered) for about 15 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, almond meal, garlic, hot sauce, mozzarella cheese and 2 tbsp of Parmesan. Stir well to combine.
  4. Spoon batter into mini muffin tin. Sprinkle bites with the remaining one tbsp of Parmesan. You'll need to make two batches unless you have a 24-cup muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot with celery and ranch!
