Description

An easy, delicious way to incorporate quinoa into your diet!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¾ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Almond Extract
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2-¼ cups Quick Cooking Oats
  • ¾ cups Cooked And Cooled Quinoa
  • ½ cups Dried Cranberries
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • ½ cups Sliced Almonds

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside (if you aren’t using parchment paper, just use an un-greased cookie sheet).

Whisk flours, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy. Add vegetable oil, vanilla and almond extracts and eggs and beat well (about 2 minutes).

Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture and stir to combine. Stir in oats, cooked quinoa, cranberries, chocolate chips and almonds.

Drop batter by rounded tablespoon-sized scoops onto prepared cookie sheet. The cookies don’t spread much with baking, so flatten them slightly with the palm of your hand if desired. Bake at 375 F for 10-11 minutes, until edges are just barely golden. Then remove the cookie sheet from the oven and let cookies cool on the pan for 1 minute before removing to a rack to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

This is a very interesting recipe to me. I think I would like to incorporate some quinoa into our diet.
These cookies look very good and I will try them soon. I have never cooked quinoa before. Thanks for sharing a unique recipe.

This is a good little cookie! I didn’t have almonds or almond extract so I used dried cranberries and pecans and they turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
