Vegan Banana Spice Choc Chip Quinoa Cookies
This is a great recipe to make when you have just cooked up a pot of quinoa and have more than you need. You can put a couple cups of cooked quinoa aside to use in this delicious, Vegan Banana Spice Choc Chip Quinoa Cookies recipe.
These are a softer cookie, so a cross between a muffin and cookie. I call them a Mookie! They are also best eaten warm, just out of the oven.
My Vegan Banana Spice Choc Chip Quinoa Cookies are low in fructose and suitable for those on low FODMAP diets provided you can handle the gluten in the wholemeal spelt flour.
* It is important if you are fructose intolerant to use only ripe bananas
Ingredients – all organic if possible
2 cups of just cooked quinoa – see how to cook quinoa correctly here.
2 cups of wholemeal spelt flour
4 tbsp of cold pressed coconut oil
2 small ripe bananas
1/3 cup of coconut sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 heaped tsp of cinnamon powder
1 tsp of ginger powder
3/4 tsp of bicarb
2-3 tbsp of Organic Times Dark Chocolate Drops
Preheat a fan-forced oven to 160 degrees.
Line a couple baking trays with eco-friendly, baking paper.
Then in a stainless steel or glass bowl, first add the 2 cups of just cooked, hot quinoa.
To this add in the coconut oil, olive oil, cinnamon, bicarb and bananas.
Next using a potato masher, thoroughly mash the ingredients together until there are no lumpy bits of banana and all the coconut oil has melted into the mix.
In another bowl, add the spelt flour, ginger, coconut sugar and chocolate drops and stir well with a fork or stainless steel whisk to combine.
Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient and mix well to combine with a stainless steel spoon.
To make the dough into cookies you will need to keep your hands wet. This is so the dough mixture doesn’t stick to your hands and can be made into round patties.
Bake for 25-30 mins, until golden brown.
Cool completely on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container in the fridge. If there is any heat left in the cookies, then they will sweat in the fridge. Storing these cookies in the fridge is important, as they are made with cooked quinoa, which has a high water content and they will not stay fresh at room temperature.
Keep for us to 3 days, but trust me they won’t last that long!
