Quiona Cookies with Rye Flakes and Flaxseed



http://schneiderchen.de | © 2013 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




These cookies are made using nutrient-dense quinoa, a complete protein, rich in iron, minerals and amino acids, rye flakes and flaxseed. You can experiment by replacing rye flakes with oats or quinoa flakes or a mix of two. Dark chocolate chips can also be added to the batter, for a richer, moister taste. And of course you can always frost them with chocolate. Enjoy them as a wholesome breakfast or as a tasty snack any time you like.

  • 150 g Rye flakes
  • 150 g Cooked quinoa
  • 2 tbsp Flaxseed
  • 70 g Brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla protein powder
  • ½ tsp Baking soda
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 90 ml Coconut oil, melted
  • 70 ml Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp Coconut milk
  1. Melt the coconut oil over low heat. Set aside to cool. Roughly blend rye flakes into powder. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Whisk together the blended rye flakes, cooked quinoa, flaxseed, brown sugar,vanilla protein powder, baking soda, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and coconut milk. Mix to combine. Shape the dough into inch balls and flatten each into a round circle with the palm of your hand. Place them on the parchment-lined baking trays. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.

@MK Moon They are crisp after cooling on rack and became softer after 3rd day. But you can always reheat them.

Hello. These look and sound good. Is the protein powder essential? Could I leave it out or will it affect the structure of the bake? Thank you.

Another recipe convincing me to use more quinoa. Quinoa in cookies tells me that the little grain is even more versatile that I thought. What healthy and tasty cookies. They look crunchy which is exactly how I love my cookies. Love the idea of a drizzle of chocolate! :)
