Quinoa Cookies – The Healthy Plant Full of Protein Snack

 Today I have something very different, yet still delicious for you. Let me introduce you to my ‘Protein Cookies’ – healthy and full of quality plant protein.

My Protein Cookies are made from quinoa (Peruvian rice) which contains a high amount of healthy protein and minerals such as Magnesium, Calcium and Iron. It has a pleasant, slightly nutty flavor and contains the healthy fats – those which actually make us slim. I know it can be a rather strange concept when you hear that fat can make you slim especially when you hear it for the first time. It is a subject for a longer conversation perhaps on one of my cooking classes or you can always ask uncle google. Here you are: Quinoa Cookies – The Healthy Plant Full of Protein Snack!
