These quinoa cookies are going to become a staple in your home for healthy chocolate chip cookies you’ll feel good about indulging in. Not only are these cookies gluten-free and vegan, but they’re also made with natural ingredients and plenty of protein and fiber.
While quinoa may sound like an unconventional ingredient to add into cookie dough, it actually works out really nicely. The quinoa flakes help pull the wet ingredients together into a dough while adding a hefty dose of protein to the mix.
For some natural sweetness, we use applesauce and erythritol to the cookie dough, giving the cookies the dessert taste we know and love.
You could try subbing in peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips for some more protein, or stirring in some chopped nuts and raisins too.
