Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Quinoa Cookie

As a mom to a five year old little boy, I’m always concerned with what he eats.  When I pack Connor’s lunch for school, I want him to feel good about the food he eats. I not only want it to be nutritious, but delicious! This is such a simple recipe that I hope you will enjoy!


¾ c. quinoa flakes

1 c. coconut flour

½ c. unsweetened dark cocoa (alkaline free)

1 tsp. baking soda

1/3 c. raw sugar

¼ tsp. Celtic sea salt (optional)

½ c. honey

½ c. coconut oil

½ tsp. vanilla

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix completely. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well then pour into bowl with dry ingredients and combine until well blended.  Drop by rounded teaspoons into an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit (temperature may vary depending on your oven). Let cool for 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.
