Quinoa cookies (Gluten free, Dairy free, sugar free)

I’m at the stage when I’m trying all sorts of healthy additions to what I cook-experiment. Quinoa is my latest addition so you’ll find it in many of the recipes that I create.

These cookies are inspired by my kids desire for chocolate everything … but the refusal to eat quinoa. So, what I’ve done, I’ve combined them and that did the trick. They eat them.

Ingredients:

1 tbs Nuttelex (Dairy free spread)

3 tbs Coconut butter melted

1 free range egg

2 tbs agave nectar

2 tsp Stevia powder

2 tbs coconut flour

2 tbs buckwheat flour

3-4 tbs carob

5 heaped tbs cooked quinoa

1 tsp chia seeds

4 squares organic 100% chocolate (unsweetened) chopped into small pieces.

Method:

Boil the quinoa in water like you’d do with rice. Stir occasionally.

Preheat oven at 150 C.

Mix Nuttelex and melted coconut butter and egg. Stir until well combined.

Add the agave, stevia, flours, carob, chocolate, quinoa and chia. Combine well all the ingredients.
