Quinoa almond cookies

Okay, I know what you are thinking, quinoa in cookies???  YES!!  Not only is quinoa healthy, but it tastes great in these chocolate chip cookies!  And of course so does the almond flour.  The biggest plus is they have been taste tested and approved by my 3 1/2 year old! :)  Enjoy!

Quinoa Almond Cookies:
1 c. almond flour
1/2 c. quinoa flour (grind in coffee bean grinder or food processor)
2 tbls arrowroot powder
1 1/2 tbls baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1 cup choc. chips

Mix together, drop onto baking sheet (you may need to shape them a bit as the dough is crumbly) bake at 350 degrees until they just start to get golden brown.  Next time I think I may just press them onto a pan and cut into bars.
