  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Place quinoa in a food processor and pulse, scraping down sides often until it becomes a paste. Add butter, sugars, salt and vanilla then pulse until completely combined.
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl then sift in flour and baking soda. Mix until combined then fold in chocolate chunks. Drop golf ball-sized portions onto cookie sheets.
  • Bake 12–13 minutes or until lightly brown around edges and centers are firm. Remove from oven, cool on wire racks and enjoy!


Whenever cooking quinoa, be sure to rinse it well first to get rid of its naturally bitter taste.
