Eggless Quinoa & Strawberry Cookies

Strawberries are coming now everywhere as here its spring, its a peek season for strawberries and we dont get tired for picking a basket of this sweet berries from the farmer's market, which are packed with vitamin A & C,folic acid and iron..While quinoa is a super food loaded with fiber,essential fatty acids like omega 3 & omega 6..This power grain are my favourite grains and i couldnt stop making bakes, main courses, salads etc..Here is a simple, delicious, eggless and healthy cookies which i prepared few days back, this cookies tastes awesome and we enjoyed having them bit warm and the small batch i have prepared vanished within few minutes...To make them more healthier i have added oats along with flour to prepare this cookies..

Quinoa & Strawberry Cookies

1/2cup Cooked Quinoa
1cup All purpose flour
1cup Rolled oats
1/2cup Strawberries (chopped)
1/2tsp Vanilla extract
1tsp Baking powder
1/4cup Sugar
5tbsp Butter (room temperature)
1/2cup Buttermilk

In a small bowl, beat the sugar, butter until they turns soft, add gradually the vanilla extract, butter milk and keep aside..Meanwhile combine the cooked quinoa, all purpose flour, rolled oats, chopped strawberries and baking powder together, mix well...add gently the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mix everything well..

Preheat the oven to 350F, line a baking sheet over a baking tray...make a small ball from the mixture and arrange over the baking sheet, bake them in middle rack of the oven for 20-25minutes...

Enjoy warm!!

Hi Priya,

I see that the stawberry cookies have turned out well.Nice.

I have a ? for you. Did your strawberry not make the cookie wet and sticky. I don't bake with fresh straw berries at all as i am nervous they would leave a lot of liquid.

sowmya's creative saga said... Reply To This Comment

I have never even thought of strawberries in cookies. Great job Priya.
