Quinoa Almond White Chocolate Chip Cookies



I <3 me some Quinoa!

My kids gobbled these up little did they know they were getting big doses of fiber and protein in a cookie!



Quinoa Almond White Chocolate Chip Cookies
 Recipe adapted from Bon appetit

Ingredients:  

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour ( I was out so I used all purpose)
1 teaspoon kosher salt 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 
1/4 cup sugar 
1/4 cup brown sugar 
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 large eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon almond extract 
1 cup cooked quinoa, cooled 
1 cup old-fashioned oats 
1 cup white chocolate chips
 1/2 cup slivered honey roasted almonds

Directions:

In the bowl of your electric mixer cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar together until light and fluffy.

Mix in maple syrup and eggs one at a time until combined.

In a medium bowl sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

Slowly pour in flour mixture until combined (1 cup at a time)

Fold in oats and quinoa.


When those are combined mix in almonds and white chocolate chips.


With a 1 tbs cookie scoop, drop mounds on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Press down slightly with a floured spoon (these cookies do not spread much so the shape that you drop is the shape you cookies will be)


Bake at 375 for about 12-15 minutes.

  4. Is there any way to leave out the almonds and almond extract? My youngest has severe nut allergies.
