These Quinoa Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies use only six ingredients including raw quinoa, buckwheat, almond butter and maple syrup to create gluten free and dairy free delicious dessert snacks. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons water (more or less as needed)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS
  1. Add the quinoa and buckwheat to a high speed blender and grind into a flour.
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients in the blender, except the chocolate chips. (If it's still very crumbly and dry, add some dates or more water in 1 teaspoon amounts until the mix is moist and holds together when you press it with your fingers.)
  3. Add the chocolate chips and mix them in evenly.
  4. If you want to gently bake the cookies, add some dates and a little more water to the mix, then bake at 200 degrees (or use a dehydrator) for 30 minutes or until they get crunchy on the outside. (This is nice because you end up with warm cookies!)
  5. Enjoy!

NOTES

Dairy free, soy free, gluten free.

ABOUT THE CHEF

You can call me Em. I eat raw plants because I love my body, the planet, and all beings. We are all equal and all-one! When I eat food, I want it to be beautiful, but not just in taste. I want it to nourish my body and soul, work in harmony with the earth, and allow other earthlings their right for freedom. I find that raw, organic plants fit the bill pretty well. My favourite foods are sweet fruits like bananas and mangoes, whole grains like brown rice, and steamed veggies like potatoes. I enjoy anything that connects me deeper to the planet and my own soul… this includes meditation, yoga, weight training and other exercise, hiking, camping, kayaking, listening to music, sharing with others, snowboarding, anything to do with food, philosophy, reading, photography, painting, writing, and a lot more.
