Spiced Up Cookies*

molasses-spice-cookies-gluten-free-row1 Cookies are wonderful aren’t they? Perfect as breakfast with some coffee, or with milk as a snack.

I’d bought some quinoa flour and put together this recipe after studying a few dozen using quinoa and general spice cookie recipes.

Hope you like it.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar of your choice (I used Stevia)
  • 1 scoop  protein powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Use a 1″ scoop to scoop balls and place them on a greased cookie sheet.
  3. Press each down with the palm of your hand. Sprinkle with a bit of sugar
  4. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Cool on the sheet and then place on a rack to finish cooling.
  6. If you leave them out longer, they will become more crispy. Otherwise store them in container in the fridge and they will be quite moist.

SERVES: 12

NOTES: You might add some chopped pecans or walnuts to the mix as well.
