Recipe Ingredients for Quinoa PB Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 c natural peanut butter
1/3 c maple syrup (actually using agave syrup - similar nutrient makeup)
2 T freshly ground flax seeds
2 c cooked quinoa
1 c rolled oats
1/2 c coconut, unsweetened
1/4 c dark chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Quinoa PB Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven on its lowest setting. Mine was 170 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. The parchment paper is non-negotiable. (FYI, you could easily pull this off in a dehydrator or solar oven, if you have either.)

  2. In a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, agave, and ground flax seeds. Mix in the quinoa, oats, and coconut. Fold in the cacao nibs if you?re using them. Your mixture should be pretty clumpy, as shown below. If your quinoa was a bit on the wet side when you started, it may not want to hold together at this point. If that?s the case, toss in a bit more flax and peanut butter and see if that helps.

  3. Next, scoop tablespoons of delicious quinoa goop onto the parchment paper and flatten them with your fingers.

  4. Make sure the cookies have decent structural integrity, as they?ll dehydrate slightly in the oven and small weak spots will become bigger. In other words, make sure they?re pretty tightly formed.

  5. Put them in the oven and let them set up for about an hour. Remove, and enjoy!

  6. Make sure to store leftover cookies in the fridge and consume them within a week.

  7. However, I think they taste best at room temperature, so you may want to let them sit out for 15 minutes before you devour them.
