Chocolate Quinoa Cookies
OMG These are amazing …….if you struggle to eat healthy and (like me) have a sweet tooth then this super healthy superfood recipe will appeal to you.
I had some quinoa in my cupboard , looking rather dull and uninspiring…..I couldnt muster up the desire to cook it ……UNTIL ……I thought let’s try something sweeter and see what happens…..hey presto chocolate quinoa cookies appeared ( like magic ! ).
So simple, i unexpectedly got an hour free today and these no bake delights took just 10 of those 60 mins ( excluding the cooking of quinoa …..which is essentially just leave to boil in a pan !). So here it is ………
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
between 1/3 and 1/2 cup organic cocoa powder ( I used green and blacks )
1/2 cup nut butter ( almond )
1 cup cooked quinoa
To sprinkle on too I used Himalayan salt and a shaving of 85% cacao chocolate and a sprinkle of grated pecan nut but you can choose what suits you.
Melt the coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa powder in a pan over a low heat. Stir well until combined.
Then add the butter and stir Well.
Mix in the cooked quinoa.
Line 1 or 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. ( I used 2)
Spoon onto the paper and shape into cookie shapes.
Add toppings and then pop into freezer for as long as you can bear to wait.
Serve + enjoy = That’s it!
ps – I started with 12 of these, and I now only have 5 to photo ! …….thats just how yummy they are !
A lovely health snack or guilt free treat which is packed with protein, fibre, iron, magnesium and has ALL 9 of our much needed amino acids!!!!!
whats not to love about these little powerful delights ! Happy days !
