Salted Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

Today’s, bake is a vegan quinoa cookies prepared with flax egg and coconut oil. I used regular chocolate chips and can be made vegan replacing it with vegan chocolate. These cookies have a very soft texture and crumble very fast. This is the first time I used Quinoa flour and loved the nutty flavor.

Total Time: 20 minutes
Preparation: 10 minutes
Baking Time: 10 minutes
Yields: 12

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Quinoa Flour
  • ½ tsp. Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp. Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil, melted (I microwaved it for 20 – 30 seconds)
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar, packed (I used dark brown sugar)
  • 1 Flax Egg (1tbsp. flax meal + 3 tbsp. water beaten)
  • 2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup Chocolate Chips (I used semi sweet)
  • ¼ cup dry roasted Peanuts
  • Sea Salt to sprinkle on top of the cookies

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a bowl combine quinoa flour baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another bowl whisk together sugar, flax egg and coconut oil.
  • Add peanut butter, vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • Gently fold flour into wet ingredients.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and peanuts.
  • Scoop cookies onto baking sheet, about 2 tbsp. per cookie, flatten slightly and sprinkle sea salt on each cookie.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes in a preheated oven until slightly brown on the edges. Cookies will feel slightly underdone but will continue to cook and harden as they cool.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely and store in an air tight container.

Note:

  • Use store bought quinoa flour as it is superfine.
  • To make flax egg, combine 1 tbsp. of ground flax seeds with 3 tbsp. of water. Whisk together until it becomes gelatinous.
