These Double Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free and come from Alyssa, Queen of Quinoa. These scrumptious cookies are made from buckwheat flour, tapioca starch, quinoa flakes, cocoa, and carob chips and are also included in Alyssa’s new e-book, Baking with Quinoa. As Alyssa says, “quinoa flakes are great in cookies because they behave very similarly to oats by bringing great texture, but they also bring the health benefits of this amazing little seed.”
Pumpkin, oh how I love thee! Add thee to a donut topped with a glaze of maple syrup, powdered sugar, and pecans and I’m over the harvest moon! Those donuts look really fantastic, don’t they? According to creator Alta of Tasty Eats At Home, they not only qualify for the “yum department,” they also are a healthier choice because they contain quinoa flour, which is packed with protein and fiber. Incidentally, this donut recipe finally inspired me to order a donut pan, something I’ve been postponing for quite some time. I’m sure you understand my decision.
