"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."

Quinoa is so healthy! I did a little adjusting to make this an organic recipe. I didn't have apple sauce so i put a Pink Lady, un-peeled, into my food processor & pulsed, then I added the bananas & pulsed some more. I used all organic ingredients & substituted Sucanat for the brown sugar. Sucanat is dried sugar cane juice, an organic brown sugar. Pulsed everything in the processor till the dough was throughly mixed & then stirred in the chips by hand. I'm a little anal about the look of my food so i used i scoop. The cookies don't spread when they bake, so for the second batch, I flatted them out. These cookies are a KEEPER! So good! Thanks...
Great recipe for healther cookies for kids. It taste like a granola bar. I added 1 cup cornflakes to add some texture and firmness to it because the mix was on the mushy side. I also adjusted the flour to 1/2 cup AP and 1/2 c. Wheat flr.
Overall, good healthy cookie. unfortunately, my 3 year old didnt like it though.
Super easy to bake! I recommend giving them a bit more texture with some nuts (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, or Brazilian) and add some hemp seeds or sunflower seeds. If you want them a wee bit sweeter, just add more coconut flakes and use one cup of chocolate chips instead of 3/4 cup. Enjoy!
This was a super easy recipe to make! Any chance I can make a healthier version of something I do it! I didn't have any applesauce so I substituted it for vanilla and honey Greek yogurt. Turned out amazing! Will definitely be making these again soon!
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 prettiest cookies, but they're quite tasty considering they have no eggs or butter. The texture is like a chewy muffin and I wouldn't recommend adding any more chocolate chips or sweeteners- they were plenty sweet for me. Going to freeze them as the recipe made 31 cookies! I will make these again.
Loved this recipe and the results! It was so easy to make (I guess just a bit longer to make since you have to cook the quinoa) but I did as the recipe said and just dumped everything in a bowl and mixed. No sifting, not extra bowls, then measured and cooked! I thought they tasted really good and my kids (ages 5 and 2) did as well. Warning though, they did smell like quinoa when baking, but didn't taste like it when cooked. Even the raw dough was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
These cookies are a hit! My daughter and I are always on the lookout for healthy snacks for the family. This fit the bill nicely. The kids (and the rest of the family) love them!
I agree with others that the 18 cookies must have been huge. I used a melon baller to scoop them and made at least a couple dozen. They were not around long enough to be counted, though. I also adjusted the bake time due the the smaller size. 12-13 minutes was plenty of time.
A final note. My husband does not like peanut butter, so I substituted cashew butter. I think any nut butter will do.
I made 45 cookies with this recipe the 18 cookies must have .been huge!
The only change I made was using nutella instead of peanut butter. The healthy facter may have dropped a few points, but they are delicious
