Recipe: Quinoa Cookies

The girls and I made cookies today! I got the recipe off of Mara's quinoa cereal box this morning, and thought it would be a good way to spend the afternoon since it was raining outside. I modified the recipe in a couple of ways...I used Spectrum's shortening instead of butter, and we used almond butter instead of peanut butter. I also used sorghum flour instead of rice flour, for no other reason then that it was closet to me (the rice flour was out in the freezer). So a bit of laziness on my part, but hey, it was raining outside and Rose is in the "must have Mommy at all times" stage...
The cookies were really good! They reminded me of oatmeal cookies in a way, but chewier. I want to play around with this recipe a bit, even though I thought they were quite good. Next time I want to replace the baking soda with baking powder-for a fluffier cookie
(this works well with the peabutter recipe too). These cookies spread, so a well rounded teaspoon works well.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 3/4 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of nuts, or seeds (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Mix honey, shortening, almond butter, brown sugar and vanilla in mixing bowl at medium speed until creamy. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, quiona flakes, and baking soda together and slowly add to the wet mixture, mixing until completely blended.

Bake for about 10 minutes on an ungreased cookie tray. (You might want to set the timer for 9 minutes and check often!) Let stand on cookie tray for a minute before removing to cool.

Enjoy!

From a browsing blogger, thank you so much for reminding me about HEMP milk!! An online group member told me about it some time ago, and then I frogot. Fastfowrard to our 1 year ped visit and our son is falling off the charts with low weight and not sleeping. The docs answer was soy formula. I tired it again, and terrible diahrea, exema etc. I was going to cry racking my brain, then I came along your website for infants with both soy and milk allergies.

AND YES< DS LOVES the hemp milk that luckily a local heath food store had!!!

PRaise the Lord, because I was so upset for my little guy.

SO, sorry for the long post , but I am just over the moon excited about helping my little guy to grow!!

Dear Julie,
Kaylyn, your cousin, told me about your blog... I read your profile, and we are very similar in ways. I have 3 children... 2 boys and a girl, and we just found our our middle child, Daniel, who is 2 years old, has allergies to many foods - eggs, soy, & dairy (very similar to your little girl). Daniel was repeatedly sick all the time, and we finally got him tested via the pediatrician. We plan to go to an allergist soon to get more info, but I wanted to say thank you for your blog. I am excited about looking through it and finding some recipes I can make for our little boy.
