Quinoa Sweet Potato Cakes - 164 Calories Each!


I LOVE healthy, filling quinoa. That's why I enjoyed making these healthy quinoa sweet potato cakes so much. This recipe is SO SIMPLE and will make a huge batch. The leftovers can be frozen or will keep in the fridge for 3 days.

I forgot the best part! Each quinoa cake has only 164 calories each. So not only do these make a great dinner, but they can be enjoyed as a healthy post-workout snack as well.
