Baking is like… a series of chemical reactions, which is science, which would make me… A scientist.
I made these gluten free, pretty damn healthy cookies with no recipe. Ok not quite. I did use a standard cookie recipe as a “guide” – just a guide. Then I replaced almost all the ingredients to make the cookies
better healthier. They’re pretty good! I was mega impressed when I tried one.
So this means I made up my own cookie recipe right? You guys are going to print or write it out on a recipe card, it’ll get all transparent and gross from ingredients over the years & then it’ll be passed down for generations to come right? No. Ok, iPad to iPad then?
1.5 cups of oat flour (put 1.5 cups of oats into a blender/magic bullet & it becomes flour!)
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of coconut oil at room temp.
1/4 cup of honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of cooked quinoa, cooled (click here for quinoa cooking instructions)
1/2 cup of sweetened coconut
4 cubes of dark, semi-sweet chocolate, shaved or chopped. (or chocolate chips)
1. In a bowl, mix oat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda & cinnamon. Set aside.
2. Beat coconut oil & honey. It’ll look lumpy even after a few minutes. Don’t sweat it!
3. Beat in dry mixture a little at a time.
4. Fold in cooled quinoa, coconut & chocolate.
5. Spoon mixture onto parchment lined pans.
6. Cook for 30 minutes at 375 F.
This batch made 14 big ones. So I guess you could do 12 bigger, or 20 smaller – whatever! Make however many you want, but remember to adjust the time accordingly. I left some out & put the rest in the freezer.
I’m a pretty proud
scientist baker right now.
I hope you try them! Let me know what you think!
