Number of Servings: 20


    1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
    1 tsp. salt
    .5 tsp baking powder
    .5 tsp baking soda
    .5 cup butter at room temperature
    .25 cup sugar
    .25 cup light brown sugar
    .25 cup honey
    2 large eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    .5 tsp almond extract
    1 cup quinoa, cooked and cooled
    1 cup old-fashioned oats
    1 cup dried cranberries
    .5 cup slivered almonds


Almost any of these ingredients can be swapped, particularly the berries and nuts. I've tried this with raisins, dates, chocolate chips and many varieties of nuts to keep from getting boring.


Preheat the oven to 375. Spray two baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, beat butter, both sugars, and honey for around 3 minutes. Add eggs and extracts and beat for another 2 minutes. Beat in flour mixture a little at a time. Stir in quinoa, oats, cranberries and almonds. Spoon onto prepared sheets with about 1.5 inches between cookies. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Let cool before removing from the pans.
