No-Bake Chocolate Quinoa Cookies

One of the things I really love about these cookies is that you store them in the freezer. Since they’re not baked (duh), they don’t really hold up well at room temp, so keeping them in the freezer not only helps them keep their shape, but the texture is amazing.

  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small sauce pan over medium, melt together coconut oil, syrup and cocoa powder. Whisk until combined. Add the almond butter and stir again until smooth.
  • Remove saucepan from the heat and fold in the quinoa, quinoa flakes and coconut flakes.
  • Using a cookie scoop, drop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, shaping slightly with your hands if desired. Sprinkle with sea salt and place in the freezer to set for about 30 minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container in the freezer for best results, but can also be stored in the fridge (they'll just be a lot softer!).
