Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa Cookies

2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Organic Quinoa Flour Gluten Free
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
8 ounces cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups oats
1 3/4 cup Quinoa Flakes

Recipe Directions for Quinoa Cookies

Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheet with parchment. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a medium bowl, set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine butter and sugar and mix on low until just blended, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing for about a minute after each addition. Stir in molasses and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix on low until flour is barely combined. Add oats and one cup of quinoa flakes mixing until just combined. Don't be concerned if the dough seems crumbly, it will come together when you form it into balls. Place remaining 3/4 cup quinoa flakes in shallow bowl. Form dough into balls about 3 tablespoons in size and roll in flakes to cover them completely. Place balls in baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake for about 5-18 minutes, until cookies have spread, cracked and are an even golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet.
