GF quinoa herbal cookies
Most of the magic that happens in our kitchen is derived from curiosity and unexpected combinations - and I always need to sweep up after myself!
I rediscovered an herbal powder mix on the shelf that I wanted to use up, I wanted something gluten free, and I was curious if chia seeds would be a suitable binder (they are!)
About a 1/2 cup almond butter
About a 1/5 cup honey
1 chia egg (1 Tablespoon ground chia seeds, 4 Tbsp water)*
1 1/4 (ish) cup cooked quinoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
About a 1/2 cup mix of:any herbal powder**
MIX WITH GUSTO AND LOVE!
Bake at 350, 10-12 minutes
* You could substitute chia seeds with Marshmallow root powder (1 Tablespoon powder to 4 Tablespoons water), which I've tried and it works great. Flax seeds would also be an option, I just haven't tried them in this recipe yet.
** This is the powder mix I had previously made. 1 gram of Cayenne still gave this quite a kick!
