Recipe Directions

I saw the chocolate chip cookie recipe on this site and had to adapt it. I didn’t have any vanilla or nut butter- but feel free to use it if you have it.

1. Add quinoa flakes, coconut, almond meal, and sea salt and mix dry.

2. In a separate bowl cream together 1 small banana and the agave.

3. Add banana mixture to dry ingredients and fluff.

4. Add water slowly until perfect consistency- appx. 1\2 cup.

5. Form into cookies and eat as is, refrigerate or freeze, or dehydrate and eat warm with some almond milk or raw ice cream.

*Note: I have emailed the Quinoa company(Ancient Harvest) to see what their manufacturing process is and if it can really be considered raw. I will let you know. I am also going to try this with with sprouted quinoa at some point to see if it works ok. The only problem is that I don’t have a good grinder or blender.

I made these tonight and my boyfriend gasped they were so good and said WOAH! ...and grabbed another. The pic is before I put them on the dehydrator.

These look fantastic. I just made some with raw oats and chocolate bits instead. Didn't even need the water to bind the dough. It's taking some restraint to wait to try one!

Someone mentioned "flaking your own" How would you do that?? I can only fugure out how to grind the stuff up into flour which might not be as fluffy.You can grind the grain in the coffe grinder as is or the better option is to sprout because sprouted grains are less acidic. Then dehydrate and grind into flour. They are such tiny little guys they sprout and dry fast.I am doing that and will let you know how they turn out!

Sprouting quinoa is fast and easy. Soak for 20 minutes and they will sprout overnight! I have an old gas oven that stays warm all the time due to the pilot so I usually put my jar on top and and in a very short time I have sprouts! I am excited to try this! I think I will add chopped walnuts because that was always a requirement in my tollhouse cookies!!

I made these today.

Not a fan of the taste of quinoa, but I try and eat it anyway.

These cookies are a great way to hide the quinoa flavour.

I used regular quinoa that I ground in my coffee grinder.

Thanks for the recipie!

isn't regular quinoa raw? couldn't you just grind that up and use in place of quinoa flakes?

I didn't have any cacao nibs, so I made them without it. They were still delicious!

I can't wait to try these! They look fabulous. You could always flake your own Quiona or oats.

Hi- I found on celiac.com that quinoa flakes are processed with a high temp, and are not considered raw. Great recipe for those who don't do 100% raw, it is a very healthy grain and a great vegan recipe!

HI Queenfluff, I was worried that they would turn brown because of the banana but they look just as good this morning as they did last night. I dehydrated them for an hour and then put them in the refrigerator. I have them on the dehydrator right now to warm them up and see what happens after I dehydrate them more. My favorite is a cold glass of hazelnut nut milk and a warm cookie. I made them official chocolate chip cookie size to appeal to my boyfriend but I would make them half that size if I did it again- they're pretty rich. I haven't made raw ice cream yet but they'd be great as little pieces in chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. They hold together better when they are dehydrated. I would only dehydrate for an hour or two though.

Wow! These look so much like real chocolate chip cookies! I just need to buy the quinoa flakes and the banana. Do you think they taste better as is or dehydrated?

Hi- I am new to this so I am not sure if they are really raw. I saw them at the store tonight(whole foods) so I had to try them. The ones I got were called Ancient Harvest organic Quinoa flakes. If someone knows of a better brand let me know because the texture was really amazing and fluffy!
