These peanut butter-packed cookies taste really good,. Healthful quinoa is used in its flake and flour form here too, making these treats doubly virtuous.

  • Yield: 24


  • 1¾ cup (420 g) smooth peanut butter
  • ¾ cup (75 g) xylitol or other sugar substitute
  • ¾ cup (140 ml) agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed mixed with 6 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (45 g) quinoa flakes
  • 2 tablespoons quinoa flour
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda/baking soda
  • baking sheet lined with baking parchment
How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF) Gas 4.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Once the ingredients are all combined, bring the mixture together in your hands then roll into 21½-cm/1-inch balls and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Using your thumb, press down each ball so it is slightly flattened out.
  4. You can use your fingers for this which is great for getting children involved too.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes, until the cookies are golden, and serve warm. Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
