This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Success®. I received a box of Success® Tri-Color 100% Quinoa to facilitate this post.
When you hear the word “quinoa” what do you think of? If you’re like me, you may think of a nutritious food that you can only use as a side dish sometimes. That was before I tried Success® Tri-Color 100% Quinoa! Not only can you use Success Quinoa as a delicious side dish or addition to any meal, there are so many great ways you can cook (and even bake) with it!
No bake cookies are a staple in our house. They are easy, delicious and a perfect ‘go to’ dessert. When I made a batch of them recently, I decide to use Success Quinoa as an ingredient and they turned out delicious! Not only is Success Quinoa gluten free, 100 percent whole grain, a good source of fiber and a complete protein, it makes these delicious cookies even tastier. Success is in the Bag®! I am so excited to share that recipe with you today.
- 1 bag Success® Quinoa
- ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
- ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
- ¼ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- ½ Cup Coconut
- ½ Cup Almond (Or Peanut) Butter
- ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
- ½ tsp. Almond Extract
- 2 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
Cook 1 bag Success Quinoa according to instructions on box (I used a bit of coconut oil mixed with water to boil mine in, it gives an added coconut flavor for the cookies)
In separate saucepan, combine coconut oil, almond (or peanut) butter, cocoa powder, vanilla and almond extract, butter and ¼ cup of coconut.
When Success Quinoa is done cooking, remove from water, drain (in bag), open bag and add to cocoa mixture.
Add Sugar and Mix Together
On a foil lined pan, use a cookie (or ice cream) scoop to scoop out cookies.
Add the remaining shredded coconut to the top of the cookies
Refrigerate for 3-4 Hours or until cookies firm up
I am highly impressed at how these cookies turned out using Success Quinoa and can’t wait to use it in even more recipes!
