      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

-I find rectangles are easier for little chubby hands to hold on to- but you can make into balls or rectangles (or any shale you want) 

-You can use gluten free oats or flour in place of the quinoa flakes.
