I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

These days, there are many so-called healthy cookie recipes out there. This chocolate chip quinoa cookie recipe is one of my favorite healthy recipes because it still tastes like a satisfying dessert! It’s made with creamy peanut butter and applesauce, instead of butter, to give it a soft texture. Oats and quinoa add healthy doses of protein and iron to these cookies. You won’t be disappointed! My whole family loves these.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add all ingredients except the chocolate chips to a Magic Bullet pitcher and pulse a few times until the ingredients are combined. Add milk if needed, but not too much – the dough should be well formed and not runny.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Scoop out tablespoons of dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake the cookies in the oven for 20 minutes.
