Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

I just made these and they came out so good! I got the recipe here! I was impatient and didn’t wait for the quinoa to cool completely so all the chocolate chips melted as I mixed it (as you can see by the dark cookies…lol). They still turned out amazing! Picky Michael even loved them =D

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
3 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine quinoa, peanut butter, maple syrup, salt, and oats in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on low/medium speed, combine ingredients well (I didn’t do this. I just mixed everything together with a spoon).

Stir in coconut and chocolate chips.

Scoop and mold dough into round, tablespoon-sized cookies.

Place cookies on parchment-paper-lined baking sheets and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until bottoms are nicely browned.

Allow to cool completely before storing.
Makes 16 - 18 cookies

My cookies!

Breakfast Sausage Patties (Vegan)

Another great recipe from “The Happy Herbivore”. I make this all the time. It keeps well in the fridge. Just make sure it is in an air tight container. I wouldn’t keep it more than 5 days. I believe the Gimme Lean Sausage says you can keep  it 3 - 5 days after opening.  It’s DELICIOUS!  =D

Breakfast Sausage Patties (Vegan)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (cooled)
  • 1 14oz tube Gimme Lean Sausage
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp liquid smoke

Directions:

Before you start make sure the cooked quinoa is completely cooled. Mix 1 cup quinoa, Gimme lean sausage, maple syrup and liquid smoke together in large bowl. Once well combined you can make patties. Take a large spoonful and flatten into a patty in your hands. Cook in greased or nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Flip every couple of minutes until cooked.  Be sure to brown on both sides. Takes 8 - 12 minutes to cook and makes 12 - 16 patties.

My Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers…

I had some left over quinoa from last night and thought it might be good in black bean burgers =)  I put it in a recipe calculator and they’re only 123 calories and under a gram of fat! They turned out really good! Here’s the recipe…

My Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked black beans (or 1 can)
  • 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
  • .25 cup bread crumbs (I make my own out of Ezekiel Bread)
  • 1/2 of a small red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • .5 cup quinoa (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup water

Directions:

Pre heat over to 425*. If using canned black beans, drain and rinse. In food processor add onion and pulse till finely chopped. Put onions in mixing bowl, then add black beans to processor. Pulse a few times till beans are well smashed. Don’t do it too much because you want to have some whole beans in your burgers. Add to bowl with onion and mix with your hands. Then add garlic, bread crumbs, quinoa, ketchup, and spices. Make sure everything is combined well. Next add the vital wheat gluten and water. Mix well with hands and form into 8 hamburger patties. Cook burgers on cookie sheet with a little cooking spray. I cooked for 10 minutes on one side, flip, then bake for another 5 - 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings and condiments. Makes 8 burgers.

Quinoa for breakfast~

Quinoa for breakfast! I got the recipe from here!

This was pretty tasty! It was just 2 cups of almond milk, 1 cup quinoa (I used a mix or red and white), a little cinnamon, and raw agave nectar (but you can use brown sugar). I boiled the almond milk, added the quinoa then covered it and let it simmer on low for about 15 minutes. Then I added raw pecans and some dried cranberries. Fresh fruit is nice too =D Yum! And better for you then that instant oatmeal crap! =D
