Quinoa Breakfast Cookies

These quinoa breakfast cookies are a great way to use up leftover quinoa. I always have a container of cooked quinoa in the fridge ready for salads and weeknight dinners, so these cookies can come together in 5 minutes on a lazy morning. This recipe is very versatile, so go ahead and experiment with other fun add-ins!

    Did you mean for it to read 1/4C peanut butter and nuts? Seems like a lot. Curious? Also is this for one serving?

    I have made these breakfast cookies twice and they are delicious. Perfect make-ahead breakfast. I’m a BLE-er and this fits perfectly with my batch food prep.

    Katie – what’s the count on this for BLE weight loss plan for women?

    • The recipe makes 2 weight loss breakfasts, so form them into a number of cookies that is divisible by two. 🙂

    Do you have nutrition information?

    • Nope, sorry Sara. I’m in more of an Intuitive Eating camp these days, and trying not to care about that sort of thing. You can always put the ingredients into an app like My Fitness Pal to figure it out, the ingredients are pretty simple. Also, these cookies are versatile and it will depend on what ingredients you decide to use.
