Greasy peanut butter cookies get a healthful twist! Commonly used in salads or entrées, nutrient-dense quinoa grains take center stage in this simple recipe. Quinoa gives the cookies a full nutty flavor, while natural peanut butter, raw honey and cocoa nibs promise a dessert that's still sweet.
2 c. quinoa, cooked and cooled
1/2 c. natural salted peanut butter
1/3 c. raw honey
1 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. dried, unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 c. raw cocoa nibs
Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Flatten tablespoons of the mixture onto parchment paper and bake for approximately one hour.
