It’s not very often that the words “cookies” and “healthy” can be used in the same sentence. Even when the are, how often are they also delicious? This time they are!
- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (I left these out)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine quinoa, peanut butter, maple syrup, salt, and oats in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on low/medium speed, combine ingredients well.
Tip: Allow the quinoa to cool before mixing it in.
3. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips.
4. Scoop and mold dough into round, tablespoon-sized cookies.
5. Place cookies on parchment-paper-lined baking sheets and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until bottoms are nicely browned.
6. Allow to cool completely before storing.
If you are wondering why mine look so dark brown, that would be because I didn’t allow the quinoa to cool before adding the chocolate chips. Whoops! It wasn’t so bad though. The chocolate chips and peanut butter melted together very nicely. These were even better than I expected them to be!
