Makes 20 balls
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed well
1 cup water
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon blackstrap molasses

In a small saucepan, combine the quinoa and water. Bring it to a boil, stir once, and cover the pot. Reduce the heat a bit and allow to simmer until all the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.
Once the quinoa is cooked, allow it to cool a bit. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Form the mixture into 1″ balls and place them onto a tray or plate. Place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm. Keep stored in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
