Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

from Sonya’s Kitchen


  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup organic cane sugar
  • ¼ cup sunflower seed butter (or almond or peanut butter)
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup rolled oats blended into fine oat flour
  • 1 ½ cups cooked quinoa
  • ½ cup dairy free chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add applesauce, sugar and seed or nut butter, baking powder and salt to a mining bowl and stir until smooth and combined.
  3. Make some oat flour if you don’t have any prepared, then add the oat flour and quinoa and gently fold to combine.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Prepare baking sheet with a quick spray or use silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  6. Drop dough onto the baking tray using a spoon to make 12 cookies. You can use your fingers to shape them a bit but no need to be perfect.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes then remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Gently transfer cookies to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before storing.

The cookies can be stored at room temperature for up to 4 days in an air-tight container, in the fridge for about a week or frozen for up to 2 months.
