Peanut Butter Quinoa Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups, cooked White Quinoa
  • 1 cup peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Cook quinoa to package directions.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine peanut butter, honey, and brown sugar; beat until smooth. Add the egg and beat until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture and mix until just combined. Add quinoa and mix on low speed until incorporated throughout.
  • Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place about an inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Gently flatten each slightly using a fork to make a crisscross design on the top.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cookies just start to crisp around the edges.
  • Let cookies cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
