DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix 1 teaspoon of ground flaxseed with a tablespoon of water. Set aside.
  • In bowl of a mixer, add first 5 ingredients, and blend until well combined.
  • Next, add flour, almond meal, remaining ground flaxseed, spices, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add ground flaxseed and water mixture, which should already appear a bit thick or gelatinous.
  • Mix altogether until well incorporated. You should have a thick sticky dough.
  • Add egg and mix until blended.
  • Add cooked quinoa, and mix briefly until dough is uniform.
  • Drop by spoonful on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. These cookies spread out thin and flat but are soft and chewy, so leave room between spoonfuls.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or longer if you like crispy edges.
