Quinoa Cookies

This cookie is a cross between a chocolate chips and oatmeal cookie and oh so yummy. I was stunned by how much it made , cause my friend just handed me the ingredients, said “Mix, scoop bake” Turns out it make just over 3 dozen cookies , and the reason why it needs to make so much is simply- they taste so darn good! These are a great snack or breakfast cookie, made with whole wheat flour, some seasoning, applesauce, oats and quinoa you really can’t go wrong. I will try to pop them into the freezer after baking pull them out when needed. My kids loved them!

1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

    Ooooh! I should make some of these for my friend! She was telling me recently she can't have too much milk products in her baked goods, so this would be perfect to share with her & make for her. 😀
