Recipes for Quinoa Flour Cookies

A great way to introduce quinoa to kids (and to adults as well) is through quinoa cookies. Quinoa flour is great for cookies because it lends a chewy and nutty texture. It’s more nutritious too. When you use quinoa flour, the flavor becomes richer and you increase the protein and calcium that you will get out of your cookie. Now, who wouldn’t want that?

Quinoa flour is available in some supermarkets and most health food stores. If you can’t find quinoa flour, don’t fret. You can easily turn quinoa seeds to quinoa flour easily by grounding the seed in a blender or food processor.

Here are a few recipes for quinoa flour cookies based on the classic peanut butter cookie and chocolate chip oatmeal cookie for your enjoyment:

Peanut Butter & Quinoa Cookie Crisps

What you need:

1 cup quinoa flour
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup crushed almonds (optional; can substitute with other nuts)
salt

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a bow, put the following ingredients together: honey, brown sugar, margarine, peanut butter and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly mixed.

In another bowl, combine all these dry ingredients together: quinoa flour, baking soda and a bit of salt. Mix well and then run the ingredients over a sieve to make sure you have a fine mixture.

Combine the wet and the dry ingredients together by gradually adding the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Mix well. Add crushed nuts. Mix again.
