These quinoa flour chocolate chip cookies surprised not only me but my family as well!

I’m having much better luck experimenting with quinoa flakes and flour than I did ten years ago. There is no bitter aftertaste from the quinoa flour in these chocolate chip cookies, which I know many folks will appreciate.

Here is a trick to take out the bitter taste of quinoa flour when making muffins and cakes:

  • Preheat the oven to 215 degrees
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Pour quinoa flour onto the cookie sheet no thicker than 1/4 – inch
  • Bake for 2 hours
  • Cool completely before storing ~ freeze for longer storage, up to 8 months
