Chocolate and quinoa together in a cookie may not be your average way to use quinoa, but it is so good. Seriously, stay with me on this one, because these are really good.
Now, these are still a cookie, but since quinoa is so healthy, they are a pretty healthy cookie. And really you can hardly tell there is quinoa in them.
Even my kids loved these. These are a healthy gluten free cookie that everyone will enjoy.
