Honeyed quinoa and almond citrus cookies (no eggs, milk or butter)
200 g of cooked red quinoa
200g almonds, toasted and chopped in food processor
100g oat flakes
100 g brown sugar
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
60 g of honey
50 g of SR flour
2 tablespoons lemon juice
100 ml of orange juice
1 tablespoon orange rind
1 tablespoon lemon rind
Preheat oven to 200º C.
Line an oven tray with baking paper.
Mix the oat flakes, almonds, flour and sugar.
Add honey, olive oil and orange and lemon juice and rinds. Mix!
Place tablespoons of the dough on the baking sheet. Don’t flatten. They will spread out during the cooking so leave large gaps (about 10cm) between cookies.
Bake for about 15 minutes till edges are brown.
Remove from oven. The cookies will be soft until they cool and harden so allow them to cool on a baking tray to keep their shape.
