Quinoa (Protein) "Cookies"

I *so* swiped this recipe from:

Green Smoothie Girl.

But as usual, I have some compulsive urge to change things around. So here's what I did.

I ground Quinoa in my BlendTec to get a cup of Quinoa flour.

Then, because I didn't have any ground, I ground some wheat in my BlendTec to get a cup of wheat flour. This is both the quinoa flour and the wheat flour in the bowl.

Then my battery in my camera died, so I didn't get to show the added:

1/2 cup coconut oil
T Baking Powder
t Vanilla
1 L Egg
1/4 cup Agava
1 cup Rolled Oats
1 t cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins

But I promise I added it. And my camera battery was just charged enough to make a picture of the mixed dough.

I charged the camera again while I was putting the cookies on the pan to bake. Just so I could get this picture for you.

And here is what they look like once they're baked. (I eyed the coconut oil instead of measuring it and think I added a little too much as they spread out more than normal, but it didn't seem to change the taste.)

And here is the PROOF that they are delicious. My P I C K Y redhead likes them. (Excuse the 80's hair and makeup, she just got back from a dress rehearsal for a play she's in tonight!)

These are something that I feel good about giving my family. If you try them, let me know!

The cookie recipe looks good and healthy! I'm looking forward to being able to zoom around the house again. :)

Thank you for your prayers during my back surgery and while I'm recovering!
