Chewy Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, you read right, these cookies are made with cooked quinoa & trust me when I say you’ll thank me later!!

They’re also made with cassava flour, which is a great gluten & grain-free option that you can use in a 1:1 ratio so it’s super easy to incorporate into recipes & a lot easier to digest!

These babes are refined sugar free, vegan, gluten-free, possibly nut-free & so moist, chewy & decadent, you’ll be making them on repeat!

Take them on the go for a quick high protein breaky, have them pre or post workout or serve them as a healthy dessert!
