Wholesome and tasty cookies are quite hard to come by, whether they are store bought or homemade.
Trust me, I know. I’ve created a ton of healthy cookie masterpieces, and unfortunately some utter failures intermittently.
These banana coconut quinoa cookies are one of my recipe developing success stories. They are healthy, wholesome, and also happen to incorporate all of the ideal components of a really good (healthy) cookie;
They’re made with wholesome ingredients, such as protein-rich quinoa, fiber-packed oats, and hemp hearts, which means they’re nutritional value is through the roof, and not to mention they are surprisingly filling.
Since these aren’t your traditional cookie, be mindful of the fact that the texture is definitely is a bit denser and not-so buttery and sweet as traditional ones, but they are still delicious.
These yummy cookies have quickly become a family favourite. I often double the recipe and store extra cookies in the freezer for a quick grab n’ go snack or a healthy breakfast option for the family; dipped in milk for the kids, dipped in espresso for mom and dad!
My son’s mouth was watering as he waited, so very patiently might I add, for my photo shoot to come to an end. Before I had time to offer my little guy a cookie, he had already swiped one from the tray.
After eating three in a row, I can assume that they were well-received. And not to mention, these cookies are the perfect size for little hands to hold onto and the perfect chewy texture for toddlers and self-feeders.
