Quinoa Oatmeal Cookies

These quinoa oatmeal cookies taste great and the addition of the high protein grain quinoa makes them extra good for you too. To make a chocolate chip version, omit the raisins and cinnamon, and add 2 cups chocolate chips. Sweetened, dried cranberries also make a delicious addition. Quinoa flour (also called quinoa flakes) is coarsely ground and looks like small flakes of oatmeal. Look for quinoa flour in health food stores and Latin food markets.
