High school quinoa cookies
Back to school makes me want these patties, but I wanted them a little healthier (and I had a lot of cooked quinoa to pass!).
By the way, quinoa really is a superfood. Thanks to the Peruvians for making us discover it! With iron and 8 amino acids, let's go for quinoa!
For about 12 patties3/4 cup neutral oil (grapeseed, avocado, sunflower, etc.)
3/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup maple sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup cooked quinoa
3/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 C. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. A Spice Affair Apple Pie Spices (otherwise, cinnamon only, but these spices are the taste of coming back!!) - Optional
1 cup raisins - optional
Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Line a large parchment paper sheet on a baking pan.
In a large bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients well with a whisk. Add the quinoa and mix again.
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flours, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, spices).
With a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well, add the raisins, then mix again.
Spread on the baking pan using an ice cream scoop. Flatten them a bit. Bake for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned.
*You can freeze them... take them out in the morning and put them in the lunch box!
