Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup almond flour ( 105 gr)
  • 2/3 cup uncooked quinoa ( 120gr)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey, or silan (50 ml)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TSP baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp neutral-tasting vegetable oil 
  • Raspberry Jelly or any jelly of your choice, Almond butter, chocolate spread, or No-Fuss Salted Tahini Date Caramel (optional)
  •  

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Place quinoa in the bowl of a food processor and process for about 30 seconds This will breakdown the quinoa to form a coarse flour.
  3. Some crushed quinoa on a hand
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until you a dough ball forms.  Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl, so all the ingredients are well combined.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30  minutes. Don't skip this step or the dough will be too sticky to handle.
  6. Cut 2 large pieces of parchment paper, place the cookie dough on one piece of parchment and place the other piece of parchment on top of the cookie dough.
  7. Using a rolling pin flatten the cookie dough to about 1/4" thick.
  8. Using a cookie cutter, the size of an oreo cookie.  Cut out circles of dough and place them in the prepared baking sheet. If you don't have a cookie-cutter you can use the rim of a glass. Roll out the remaining dough and cut out more cookies.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes.  Let the cookies cool completely and store them in an airtight container
  10. Enjoy as-is or with a filling ( See note 1)

Notes

  2. It's important to store the cookies in an air thight container once they are completely cool, so they don't get soggy.
