These are actually quinoa, coconut, peanut-butter, chocolate chip cookies, but that name was just too long.
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup peanut-butter
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups cooked and cooled quinoa
1 cup chocolate chips
Beat together butter, peanut butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar until smooth. In another bowl combine flour, coconut, baking powder, and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to peanut butter mixture and mix until smooth. Stir in quinoa and chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool on cookie racks.
I love anything with peanut-butter and chocolate, so I really liked these cookies. So did the rest of the family. They were gone pretty quickly once the boys spotted them. Not only did these taste great but they’re extremely nutritious because of the quinoa. It’s an interesting ingredient for a cookie, and I thought it worked really well.
