Chocolate Chunk Quinoa Cookies

Updated: Mar 16, 2021


These cookies are the ultimate sweet and salty treat. The quinoa flour adds a earthy and nutty flavour while providing moisture and density. These earthy flavours pair well with the sweetness of the chocolate and salty finish. Quinoa flour is naturally gluten-free, which makes it the perfect cookie for sharing with your friends and neighbours.


Although quinoa flour has quite a bold flavour, using quinoa flour in your recipes can add protein, fibre and iron; upping the nutritional value of your treat. Anytime you can add more nutrition and natural fuel in a sweet treat, the better! This recipe is also a one-bowl recipe which makes it a quick and easy weeknight bake - no mess, no fuss.
