HONEY QUINOA COOKIES
These cookies are crunchy, chewy, addictive and naturally sweet from the goodness of honey. The school that my children go to is a ‘nut free zone’ so I had to come up with a recipe that suited and lucky for me the kids loved them and wanted to take them to school.
I have used Orgran breakfast flakes and self raising flour. I am aware that this may be hard to find in every country so you can use whatever is available in your local supermarket of the equivalent.
150g butter or non-dairy alternative
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup cranberries or sultanas
3 cups gf Quinoa Flakes breakfast cereal
300g gf self-raising flour
Preheat oven to 180C and arrange a tray lined with baking paper.
In a saucepan add the butter and honey and stir over a low heat until melted. Set aside.
In a large bowl add the flour, flakes and cranberries or sultanas. Combine.
Pour the honey mixture onto the flake mixture and combine until everything is coated.
Using a spoon and your hand, roll the mixture into cookie size balls and place onto tray leaving at least 3cm between ball. Then using a fork flaten only a little or until you see the edges start to crack.
Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool before serving.
