Quinoa-Oats Chocolate Chip Cookie

This is something I made yesterday.  Kids wanted to eat chocolate chip cookie.  Instead of making plain chocolate chip cookie, I wanted to try something new.  I got this recipe from allrecipes website.  When it comes to baking, I rely on this website the most as I have followed their measurements without even considering twice.  The original recipe calls for 18 cookies but I changed the measurements for 8 cookies and followed the same.  Here goes the recipe.


  1. Cooked Quinoa- 3 tbsp
  2. Shredded coconut - little more than 1/4 cup (1/4 cup + 3 tbsp)
  3. Oats - little more than 1/4 cup (1/4 cup + 3 tbsp)
  4. All Purpose Flour - Little more than 1/4 cup (1/4 cup + 3 tbsp)
  5. Brown Sugar/White Sugar - 1/3 cup
  6. Ripe banana - 1
  7. Peanut Butter - 4 tbsp
  8. Vanilla Extract - 1/2 tsp
  9. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  10. Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
  11. Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
  12. Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips - 1/3 cup
  • Pre heat Oven to 350 degrees.
  • Take a wide bottomed bowl.  Mix cooked quinoa, coconut, oats, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, chocolate chips and mix everything well.  Keep it aside.
  • Take the ripe banana, chop it into small pieces.  Put it in the mixie jar along with peanut butter and grind it into a smooth paste.
  • Add the grounded banana paste to the dry mix along with vanilla extract and mix it well. 
  • Grease the baking sheet.  Drop the cookie batter by spoonful on the sheet.
  • Bake upto 20 - 25 minutes until browned around the edges. 
  • Let it cool for sometime and enjoy.
Cookie came out pretty good and luckily my girls liked it so much.
I am sending this cookie recipe to Healthy Diet Event-cooking with whole grains ; an event by Priya Suresh hosted by Nupur.  Also to Kids Delight Event ; an event by Srivalli hosted by Gayathri Kumar.
