Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

I wanted to try a healthy cookie recipe and I came across a recipe for these cookies on pinterest. I had lots of quinoa so I decided to try them. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats(if making these gf use gluten free oats)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

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.
