Quinoa Flour Sugar Cookies
The chocolate chip version of these cookies will bring you right back to Grandma’s kitchen. The cinnamon/cranberry version creates the perfect breakfast cookie. Both options are higher in fiber and protein than traditional cookie recipes thanks to the quinoa flour, making these cookies ideal for hikes, road trips, and just plain old office snacking.
