made at home: quinoa peanut butter cookies

Quinoa Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1 cup of cooked & cooled quinoa
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/3 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of honey 
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips 

    After the quinoa is cooked and sat to cool, combine it with the oats, peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey. This process is easier to mold with your hands (be prepared to get sticky though), but a fork works fine as well. Add in the cinnamon and sea salt to the mixture. Fold in the white chocolate chips, and roll the dough into about a tablespoon sized ball. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes. When pulled out from the oven, press down the cookies with a flat bottomed object to create a flat cookie, then let cool for serving. 

      I'm not going to lie, this recipe took me twice to create the perfect cookie. The first time I tried to make it more of a "salted" peanut butter cookie... and well, it was way too salty. They were also seeming a bit too dry, which surprised me because there was peanut butter in the recipe, so I added a bit of coconut oil to do the trick.
    Quinoa is something I usually have a lot of in my kitchen cabinet (thanks to Costco trips!), and I love baking with it. I also realized that I hardly bake cookies, so I figured it was about time to make some in my own kitchen again. Also, anything with peanut butter is a wonderful dessert in my book. Enjoy!
