Quinoa Cookies (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Quinoa Cookies that are vegan and gluten free.   YES.  I am always thinking of what I can add to my cookie recipes to make them healthy enough for breakfast.

That is where these quinoa chocolate chip cookies come in.  Who wouldn’t want cookies for breakfast?  Since these quinoa cookies are packed with protein and fiber, they should keep you full for quite some time.

Quinoa is a plant based source of complete protein. Mom win.

I added chocolate chips to my cookies, but you can also use dried fruits if you like.  I think chopped dates or raisins would be great in here as well.

If you wanted to bump up the protein a little more, you could add some hemp hearts or chia seeds.  These quinoa cookies are vegan and gluten free.  I hope you enjoy them.

    1. Thank you! I think they could, but you may need to decrease the liquid somewhere else in the recipe a bit.
  1. I'm excited to try these! Would love to start using more of my quinoa. For making my own oat flour, how many cups of oats would make 1 cup of oat flour? Thanks!
  2. also, sorry for the stupid question but is it 1 (dry ) cup quinoa cooked or 1 cup of cooked quinoa - I'm thinking 1 dry cup - then cooked...
  3. Any other oat flour alternatives? If using whole white wheat flour, how would you suggest I adjust the recipe? More or less liquids? Thanks :)
  4. Can you substitute stevia (like stevia for baking - Walmart has generic brand) - for coconut sugar? If so, amount? Thanks, these cookies look yummy!
  5. I made these and subbed raisins for the chocolate chips and added a teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon. They were awesome! Like a healthy oatmeal raisin cookie. My kids and husband loved them too. They were all gobbled down in no time. I'll have to make more. I used a regular small cookie scoop, and totally overlooked the instruction to refrigerate and the turned out fine.
