Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Yield 8 - 10 bites


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (here's How to cook quinoa)
  • 1 cup canned or cooked pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sweetener of choice
  • optional shredded mozzarella cheese (vegan brands work too!)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a baking sheet well, then set aside. In a medium bowl, mash the beans completely. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Taste, then add a little more sweetener only if needed. (Mine didn’t need it.) Roll into balls, then break off a piece of the cheese—if using—and push it into the middle before sealing the ball back up. Place the balls onto the baking tray and cook 30 minutes. For a crispy outer shell, feel free to broil a minute at the end.
