Quinoa flakes cookies (vegan, gluten free)

--> recette en français

    Long time I didn't published a new recipe here, I'm very sorry about that, I've been publishing on the French version but I've been doing long hours at my current job and I'm exhausted - or very busy with groceries, cleaning, cooking meals and taking care of Jesse, my dog - on my days off.

   I'll try to get back on track and publish the seasonal recipes I've published in French for the past weeks.

   About the recipe, I made these cookies last May, I love cookies as you can see on the blog and when I bought these quinoa flakes, I knew I wanted to bake them in a dessert and first went for cookies in order to make another recipe with them later on.

   I have now quite a "collection" of cereal flakes (oat, rice, buckwheat, millet, spelt, etc.) to make porridges or granolas or even crumbles but I had forgotten about these ones I had bought a few weeks before. Finally, quinoa flakes cookies were a success, both the taste and texture are interesting and change from any cookies I have eaten in the past.

   You'll see that this recipe requires just a few ingredients and is ready in no time. I first tried a gluten free version with whole rice flour and then another version with half all-purpose flour and half spelt flour and added more quinoa flakes. Both recipes work fine and are good but different, I wouldn't be able to tell you which one is my favorite, I'll let you try too 😉 And why not, add some chocolate chips for more fun!

   And stay tuned, I used these delicious cookies in a dessert as I told you, it'll be online within the week - I promise!

  • In a mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients : flakes, flour(s), baking power or soda, sugar and salt.

  • Add the melted coconut oil and milk and mix with a fork a few seconds until the dough is homogeneous.

  • Scoop some cookies dough with a table or teaspoon, roll the dough between the palm of your hands and put it onto a baking tray covered with some baking paper. Slightly flatten the raw cookies with a fork and add a few quinoa flakes on top (optional)
