Chocolate Coconut Quinoa Cookies

I have a new no-bake cookie for you today. These Chocolate Coconut Quinoa Cookies are delicious. They are vegan and naturally gluten-free.  You only need a few simple ingredients and there is no food processor needed!

I think these cookies are healthy enough for breakfast too.  The quinoa flakes and nut butter add a nice amount of fat and protein, keeping you full for a while.  If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can use quick oats instead.

This recipe is also easy to make nut free by using sunflower butter.  I imagine it should work out just fine.  These healthy cookies literally took 5 minutes to whip together too!

We shot a video to go along with this recipe as well.  You can view it below. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.

  1. I'm looking forward to trying this recipe! Just wondering how quinoa flakes differ from regular quinoa? Would regular cooked quinoa work as a substitute? Thanks!
    1. Not sure if regular quinoa would work. Quinoa flakes look similar to quick oats. In fact, you can use quick oats if you like in this recipe.
  2. These look great. I have a sensitivity to even gluten free oats , you think you can substitute quinoa flakes in your other oat cookie recipes?
