Chunky Double Chocolate Quinoa Cookies


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa, I buy the frozen bag from Whole Foods. Steam in the microwave and let cool.
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • 3 large very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup coconut, date or brown sugar, I love date sugar in this recipe and now in many of my recipes. But, the other sugars work well too.
  • 3 tbsp agave or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 packet stevia, (about 1/4 tsp) optional
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts, I used walnuts
  • 1/4 cup dark raisins, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. place parchment paper on two cookie sheets and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash up the bananas. Then add sugar, honey and vanilla. Stir until combined.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except the chips, nuts and raisins. Mix well but try not to over mix. Just until all is combined well.
  4. Fold in the chips, nuts and raisins. Dig deep into the bottom of the bowl to make sure all the dry is combined into the batter.
  5. With a cookie scoop, drop onto cookie sheet and gently press the cookies down with your fingers. You may need to wet them so they don’t stick.
  6. Bake for about 25 to 29 minutes. The cookies should be set and when you touch the top they should spring back just a little. Let cool on wire rack until completely cooled. They taste best that way.
  7. Store in an airtight container up to 2 days or in the fridge up to 5 days.

Enjoy the healthy goodness!
