Quinoa Cookies Recipe Ingredients!
Let the Baking Begin!!

  • 15 oz Can Organic Garbanzo Beans (well rinsed)
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Plain Applesauce
  • 1 TBSP Pure Vanilla
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Free Earth Balance Butter Spread
  • 2 TBSP Dairy Free Vanilla Unsweetened Milk 
  • 1 Cup Quinoa Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Raw Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips (allergy safe of your choice, we used Enjoy Life Brands)


Pre-heat oven to 350

Start by thoroughly rinsing the beans, the better you rinse the less you will have a bean taste. I like to place the beans in a strainer and rinse and shake until water runs clear through the beans.

Once well rinsed place beans into a food processor and add applesauce, vanilla, salt, lightly melted butter and dairy free milk of your choice (I choose to use un-sweetned vanilla hemp seed milk in this recipe). Pulse the bean mixture until smooth and creamy!

In a separate bowl mix quinoa flour (found at most health food stores), baking powder and sugar. Mix well to thoroughly blend in the baking powder.

Next slowly pour bean mixture into flour mixture and stir until all ingredients are well combined. The mixture should form into a smooth and creamy cookie dough texture. 

Now finally time to mix in those chocolate chips (give this raw cookie dough a taste as it's safe to eat without baking). Just remember to save some to bake : )

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or lightly grease if you prefer). Next scoop about tablespoon sized dollops onto sheet, recipe makes approximately 18-20 cookies.

Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookie is a little spongy in the center.

Allow to cool and enjoy this delicious treat!!
