Gluten-free Coconut Quinoa Cookies

Please share!

How would you like a delicious gluten free cookie that also acts like a meal replacement and is loaded with protein? Ya, I thought so!

As usual, I am stoked to support your efforts to increase the amount of plant based foods you consume without giving up on taste. Life is too short to not eat cookies and I myself plan to eat them until the end of time.

Yes I still enjoy the occasional gluten filled Starbucks chocolate chip cooke, but more often than not, I go for something I prepared myself at home, such as these awesome gluten free coconut quinoa cookie.

WHAT, a cookie made with quinoa? YES, that’s right. Give them a try. Just be ready for some super powered energy that is just bites away. Sounds good? NO, sounds AMAZING!

Now print this recipe and get on it. Got it? Great!
