Snickerdoodle Quinoa Cookies combine the flavor of a snickerdoodle with the wonderful mouthfeel of a soft-baked oatmeal cookie. Loaded with plant-based protein and healthy fats, they are a dessert you can feel good about or a breakfast you can look forward to!
No oats in these puppies, or flour, or gluten, or animal products, or refined sugar! They are filled with healthy ingredients that serve up vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, plant-based protein, and most of all fabulous taste and texture. Imagine a toffee-esque butteriness combined with cinnamon sugary goodness in a soft, delicate chew. Yuum!! If you’re having a baking party with family or friends, why not also try my Hazelnut Mochaccino Cookies or Choco Chip Cocoa Cookies!
Some notes for you —
Puffing/Cooking Quinoa: I have a post on how to cook quinoa, if you are unsure of what to do. Also, if you are new to the world of quinoa, the benefits are amazing. It is a great food to add to any diet. And these cookies are a fun way to start!
Cookie size: Please resist the temptation to make a larger cookie, as they will not bake properly.
Flavor: While this cookie contains 1/2 cup of coconut flakes, there is no perceptible coconut flavor!
