Quinoa Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Finding new opportunities while staying home during these uncertain times. I haven’t had the luxury of baking much lately with my hectic schedule but that all has changed real fast! I look at this as the universe telling us to slow down and in the end, none of us are immune to this virus.

So I scoured my pantry to see what I had on hand (and threw away the outdated stuff!) I came across a bag of quinoa flour that I received from Pereg Natural Foods and decided to make the recipe on the back which were cookies! Cookies are always a good idea to me! Plus these are gluten-free!

Ingredients you will need…

How lucky was I that I had everything I needed?! Almond flour, eggs, coconut sugar, baking soda, almond milk, vanilla, salt & cinnamon. Of course, there is always chocolate chips so that was not a problem!

Next, I called on my daughter to help as she mixed everything together (the dough is very sticky). Then I spooned them on the baking pan and baked for about 14 minutes. Let cool & enjoy! We decided to enjoy them with vanilla ice cream and make ice cream sandwiches with them!

Keep them in an airtight container on the counter for a few days or in the fridge. They definitely stay soft this way! Not that you should feel guilty for eating cookies, but I feel a little less guilty eating these!
