Quinoa Cookies

Quinoa Cookies

Liz

"I bake with my three-year-old at least once a week. We have tried a plethora of different cookies with different fruits and bases. This one was a hit! My three-year-old and older child both loved these, and I did too! They are super simple to make and sneak fiber, protein, and other nutrients into dessert! I used one cookie sheet for nine cookies, three rows of three fit well."

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Place a cover on the saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the moisture is absorbed completely, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  3. Mix cooked quinoa, coconut, oats, flour, brown sugar, mashed bananas, applesauce, peanut butter, vanilla, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together in a large bowl. Fold chocolate chips into the quinoa mixture; drop by spoonful onto prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes. Allow cookies to set up a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack

I made these cookies following the recipe to a "T", with two small exceptions. I added about 1/2 cup of raisins and split the flour 50/50 with AP and organic whole wheat. They aren't the prettie...

I'm giving this 4 stars, not only because I loved the cookie, but because the recipe turned out exactly as stated. My only change was to use dried cranberries instead of chocolate and I added s...
