Healthy Quinoa Cookies


These protein packed treats will leave you wanting more then one! These don't only have the comforting taste of peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies, but they also offer a good source of energy with protein for that afternoon snack you always crave. The best part about these? You won't feel guilty about this addiction! 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Quinoa Cookies
2 cups chilled, cooked quinoa (I used a quinoa blend which also contained black quinoa)
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (I used chunky and worked perfect)
1/2 Tbsp maple syrup 
1 pinch of salt 
1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut 
3/4 cup rolled oats 
1/2 cup chocolate chips 

Mixture after adding chocolate chips.

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Combine all but the chocolate chips in a mixer bowl equipped with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until mixture come together and becomes smoother (see picture above). 
3.Stir in chocolate chips.
4.To shape these cookies, I used my tablespoon measure which has a nice dome shape to it. Place shaped cookies onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until bottoms a golden. 
5. Allow to cool completely after taking out of the oven. 

Cookies placed on tray BEFORE baking. 

Happy baking and enjoy!
