Recipe 22/36 whole grain quinoa, cashew and chocolate chip cookie

I made this as an experiment without a recipe, so the ingredient list should be used as a guide rather than a precise list of measurements. This made a batch of six cookies so one can scale it up as necessarily, but I would start with a small batch.


~2 cups of cooked Quinoa
1/4 cup of ground cashew
1/2 cups of chocolate chips
3 tablespoons of honey
1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
1 egg

Beat egg, work butter into egg, add honey, cashews and Quinoa in that order. Scoop into cookie on a cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for 12-18 minutes.

These came out as crumbly cookies, and the texture is different, but the taste was good. I think they could be sweater, but Lisa says they were good the way they are. I think it is interesting to be able to make a whole grain cookie and will try tweaking this recipe so more.
