Attention!!! Grandchildren approved!

Recipe: Chocolate chip quinoa cookies
"Must Have Been Something I Ate" by Peggy Kotsopoulos

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup uncooked quinoa flakes (or oatmeal flakes)
1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
2 tablespoons almond butter
4 large VERY RIPE bananas
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Pinch sea salt
These cookies are SOOO GOOD! The are jam-packed with protein, fiber, stress-busting B-vitamins, energizing goodness and deliciousness! They're also gluten-free and will kick your cravings to the curb.

To prepare the cookies:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas in bowl with a fork and add vanilla, almond butter and coconut sugar. Add quinoa, oatmeal, coconut and pinch of salt. Mix until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and drop batter on to cooking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Makes about 25 cookies that look more like muffin-tops and are chewy.

Daughter sent this with these recommendations:  "I substituted gluten free oats for the quinoa flakes, applesauce for the coconut sugar and I am sure used way more than 1/2 cup of choc chips, it just didn't look like enough for me ;)"
