Snickerdoodle Quinoa Breakfast Cookies
These quinoa breakfast cookies are a far cry from their sugar and fat laden ancestors. These are sweetened naturally using banana and maple syrup, they are completely flourless AND the only fat comes in the form of flaxseed meal and cashew butter. Basically, they're a snickerdoodle cookie that you can happily eat more than one of.
