Quinoa SnacksQuinoa Gluten Free Cookies

Simple Easy and Tasty. These snacks can be made to your taste. This is a suggestion to help you get a base recipe. I looked around in my kitchen and thought about what ingredients I could use to create a healthy, tasty, simple, and low sugar gluten free protein loaded with good fats snack. I came up with this concoction. Please add whatever you like, These would be great with nuts, raisins, and more flour. This recipe is gluten- free but if you add wheat flour, you can make the snacks more like cookies. If you do add or subtract from these recipes- please share. I love learning what will make these better.  Enjoy!

Place mix onto greased baking sheets in tablespoon sized balls. Then press gently with a fork on the top of each cookie to flatten it slightly. (It helps it cook through better) Put into oven and bake. Check your snacks throughout the process and note that at lower altitudes you may need to cook less.
