On a cold afternoon sitting at home drinking a warm cup of tea is almost perfect. Almost.
Whether you are a dunker or not a cup of tea and a bikkie go together like a match made in heaven.
Although packet biscuits are full of processed sugars and cannot compare to home baking.
What is better than home baking, that uses up leftovers from dinner the night before?! NOTHING!
As a twist on the classic ANZAC biscuit using a mixture of cooked Quinoa, Coconut oil and Almond meal make these biscuits chewy, nutty and almost good for you.
Quinoa & Almond cookies
100g Cooked Quinoa- cooled
70g Almond meal
100g Brown Sugar
30g Golden syrup
60g Coconut oil
1/2tsp Baking Soda
Mix all dry ingredients together. Heat Coconut oil and golden syrup till melted. Mix golden syrup mix with dry ingredients till combined.
Drop spoonfuls on a lined baking tray spaced far apart- as these spread- alot.
Bake in a preheated oven 140c for 40min till golden. Carefully transfer to a cooling rack.
I had none at home but if you substituted a gluten free flour blend for the flour these would be gluten free.
Eat wrapped in a blanket on the couch with a hot cup of tea.
