Why Do I love Chocolate Quinoa Cookies?

My days are a bit hectic. I am trying to eat healthier and skip all those chocolate bars loaded with fats and calories. These chocolate cookies have quinoa which is very healthy. Also, they give me that touch of sweetness I crave from time to time!

The combination of quinoa, honey, cacao, and coconut oil creates an unforgettable taste. Two or three cookies will keep you satisfied for quite a while.

One more great thing is that I do not need to use my oven. All I need is one bowl and a scooper. So, I will not end up with a load of dishwashing!

Another amazing thing about the quinoa chocolate cookies is that they fit in a zip lock right in my bag. When I am busy working around the house, I can have one quickly with a cup of tea. If I am taking the kids out, I can have one as a treat (for being an amazing mom as all of you moms are 😉). I can also hand my kids some as a treat for good behavior!

On those more hurried days, chocolate quinoa crisps make a great on-the-go breakfast. They are also wonderful when you have a sudden guest. So, in your free time you can make a batch of these tasty cookies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can quinoa be left out over night?

Packed and uncooked quinoa can be left out at room temperature. Cooked quinoa ruins if left more than 2 hours. Keep them in a container in the freezer.

Can chocolate be used instead of the cacao?

You can use the regular chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or sugar-free chocolate. But you have to melt it first. You can put it in the microwave for 15 seconds. Then, take it out, stir it, and put it back. Repeat the same procedure for 1-2 minutes or till the chocolate totally melts. After that, you add the melted chocolate to the ingredients and form the quinoa cookies.

Can this recipe be suitable for vegans?

Sure! Replace honey with maple syrup or sweet molasses. But, it might slightly affect the taste.
