This means you can indulge in this delicious dessert without regretting it now or later.
In fact, the only thing you might regret is that you didn't eat more before they vanished from your kitchen!
So, give these quinoa cookies a try and let us know what you think!
This recipe makes a little more than two dozen cookies.
Has it been a while since you've eaten cookie dough? With most cookie recipes you just can't lick the bowl. Why risk getting sick from the raw eggs and salmonella?
This recipe is different. No raw eggs. Lick that bowl with no fears! Our kids did.
And they did more than lick the bowl. They ate all our cookies! Well, almost. Paul and Lori did get to eat some as well.
But you know what? We didn't mind that our kids ate so many. These cookies are actually good for you. You don't need to feel guilty about letting your loved ones (or yourself) eat them.
So, why not eat a few more?
How can you sweeten a cookie when you don't want to use sugar but still need the bulk it provides?
That's the question we faced when making these stevia quinoa cookies.
Stevia is our preferred sweetener. But it lacks the bulk of regular sugar. And just a little bit of it gives you all the sweetness you need. So you want to use it sparingly.
Some would reach for that jar of applesauce instead. That's a fine idea. But our family doesn't tend to eat applesauce.
What else is in our fridge that could do the trick...? Oh yeah! Carrots.
Carrots gave these cookies some sweetness and that all-important bulk.
Mixing stevia into these carrots proved to be the total solution to our sugar-free dilemma.
