Multigrain Exam Cookies (High Energy/Healthy)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 10 mins

These are the cookies I make for exam time- they provide slow-release energy and are full of nutrition. They're also nice with 1/2 cup raisins added.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook quinoa in water according to packet instructions. Allow to cool.
  2. Add in remaining ingredients and add soymilk if it seems a bit dry.
  3. Bake 10-12 minutes until crispy round the edges (bake less for softer, cakier cookies, more for crispier).

This recipe is missing a liquid ingredient. It says add soy milk but it doesn't say how much. I'd say at least 1/3 cup.

Made many changes to these: for more flavour, I cooked the quinoa in orange juice; I subbed the oil for sweet potato purée (baby food); I reduced sugar to 1/4 cup; I also added 1/4 cup of goji berries, 1/4 cup currants, 1/4 cup of milk, 1 tsp 4-spice, and 1 egg. They turned out pretty good - not the best cookies I've ever had, but for their nutritional value, they're totally worth making! I only gave 4 stars because I imagine they must be pretty bland if made according to recipe and extremely dry without the milk and egg. A chewy cookie required 15 minutes of baking.Yield: 18 cookies
