Quinoa Cookies with banana and avocado
Our love story with quinoa continues tonight with those cute little cookies. One look at the ingredients and I was sold. The grilled quinoa gave these cookie the crunch you want whilst the banana and avocado gave them that moist inside. These will be great for mid-afternoon snacks, or mid morning!

  2. In a small mixing bowl, completely mash the banana, avocado and nut butter together, until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  4. Spoon the cookie dough on the cookie sheet, and gently flatten with the back of a spoon.
