quinoa chocolate chip cookies

Compliments of my friend, Tamara Carter.
Quinoa is packed with protein, fiber and iron. Try these creamy cookies to sneak some of this superfood into your diet. 

Here’s what you need:
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp applesauce
1/4 cup raw honey or agave
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup almond flour
1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa (about 1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa) or 1/2 cup soaked quinoa
1/4 to 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Here’s what you do:
In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, applesauce, honey, vanilla and salt. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined. Spoon rounded tablespoons of cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Place in the freezer to set, about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
