Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you already know that Pinterest is like crack. Beautiful food? Neat DIY projects? Gorgeous clothing? Hilarious Memes? Houses I could never afford? If you want it, Pinterest has got it. It’s like the best of the Internet – all in one place.
You see, I’ve had a bag of quinoa in my pantry for a while. I keep trying to like the stuff but I’m just not there yet. Might as well turn it into a cookie, right?
Instead of wasting time Googling quinoa cookie recipes, I went straight to Pinterest. Within about 30 seconds, I found this recipe from Shape.com & decided to give a whirl:
Peanut Butter Quinoa Cookies
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 & line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Scoop tablespoons onto the sheet & flatten. Bake for about an hour & a half.
Makes 24 cookies
