Cookies with honey, oats and quinoa

And raisins to give them a Mediterranean attitude and chocolate drops to get the kids attention. They look golden on the top, slightly undercooked in the middle and cooked on the bottom. And the best comes next. You can freeze them (after you bake them). How convenient!


Hands on: 20 minutes

Portion: 25 medium size cookies (27gr. each)

  6. Add the eggs one at a time and the vanilla.

  7. When all of the ingredients are well combined, add the flour mixture and beat just until combined.

  8. Remove mixing bowl from stand, take a wooden spoon and add the oats, the quinoa, the chocolate chips and the raisins. Mix gently.

  9. Line your baking pans with parchment paper and place 1 tablespoon of the mixture to create each cookie.

  10. Bake for 10 minutes and ready.
