“I bake with my three-year-old at least once a week. We have tried a plethora of different cookies with different fruits and bases. This one was a hit! My three-year-old and older child both loved these, and I did too! They are super simple to make and sneak fiber, protein, and other nutrients into dessert! I used one cookie sheet for nine cookies, three rows of three fit well.”

Original recipe yields 18 cookies

Directions

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Place a cover on the saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the moisture is absorbed completely, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  3. Mix cooked quinoa, coconut, oats, flour, brown sugar, mashed bananas, applesauce, peanut butter, vanilla, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together in a large bowl. Fold chocolate chips into the quinoa mixture; drop by spoonful onto prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned around the edges, 20 to 25 minutes. Allow cookies to set up a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack

Quinoa is so healthy! I did a little adjusting to make this an organic recipe. I didn't have apple sauce so i put a Pink Lady, un-peeled, into my food processor & pulsed, then I added the bananas & pulsed some more. I used all organic ingredients & substituted Sucanat for the brown sugar. Sucanat is dried sugar cane juice, an organic brown sugar. Pulsed everything in the processor till the dough was throughly mixed & then stirred in the chips by hand. I'm a little anal about the look of my food so i used i scoop. The cookies don't spread when they bake, so for the second batch, I flatted them out. These cookies are a KEEPER! So good! Thanks...

Super easy to bake! I recommend giving them a bit more texture with some nuts (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, or Brazilian) and add some hemp seeds or sunflower seeds. If you want them a wee bit sweeter, just add more coconut flakes and use one cup of chocolate chips instead of 3/4 cup. Enjoy!

This was a super easy recipe to make! Any chance I can make a healthier version of something I do it! I didn't have any applesauce so I substituted it for vanilla and honey Greek yogurt. Turned out amazing! Will definitely be making these again soon!
