Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies
Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies
By Peggy Kotsopoulos
I’ve been making these cookies since my investment days and it’s the recipe I use to convert the
non-converted into the world of goodness! Everyone LOVES these cookies – especially kids and
those who claim to not like healthy or gluten-free eats! They are so scrumptious and have a
moist, chocolate chip banana bread-like consistency. Try ‘em, you’ll totally fall in love!
4 large, very ripe bananas
1 heaping Tbs almond butter (optional)
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
1/2 cup (125 mL) coconut sugar
