My husband wanted oatmeal cookies so I made them for him, then wished for some of my own. I had just found quinoa flakes at the store, so I tried to make them. You can use raisins if you like; I’ve just never liked raisins, so I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips!!

1 1/2 c. quinoa flakes

1/3 c. Enjoy Life chocolate chips or raisins or dried cranberries

3/4 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 tsp. karaya gum

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 c. tapioca starch

1 1/4 c. sorghum flour

1/2 c. Spectrum palm shortening

1 1/4 c. beet or cane sugar

2 flax eggs

1/4 c. canola oil

2 tsp. corn-free vanilla extract

1/4 – 1/3 c. water

Mix all ingredients, adding water last (just enough to have it all hold together). Scoop out onto ungreased insulated baking sheet, about 2″ apart. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 12-13 minutes.
