Cranberry Orange Quinoa Breakfast Cookies
We're going with the classic combination of orange and cranberry, opting for a combination of fresh squeezed orange juice and zest to get that bright citrus flavor. For the tartness, we have organic dried cranberries, which have a lovely chewy texture and a welcome burst of sweetness with each bite.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine flax egg, almond butter, banana, orange juice and maple syrup in a large bowl. Beat together until smooth.
Add oats, quinoa flakes, baking powder and spices and stir to combine. Fold in orange zest and cranberries.
Scoop 1 - 2 tablespoons of batter onto the prepared baking sheet and repeat until no dough remains. Bake on the center rack for 12 - 14 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
Cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
