Baking has obsessed the whole world during this COVID-19 pandemic! However, flour has quickly disappeared from most supermarkets. This means I cant bake many sweets using flour, but to be honest, I try not to use flour and processed ingredients in my recipes, as I try to keep things whole and healthy.
These cookies are so simple to make, you can even ask your kids to help you out with this. I bet they will enjoy drizzling the chocolate on top! ( which is optional, but I think these cookies will taste a lot better with a bit of chocolate because chocolate makes everything better…right? right?! )
Now, In this recipe I am using:
1. Quinoa Flakes/Ground Quinoa
Literally, all you need to do – is combine the two ingredients, shape them, bake ’em, and eat ’em. Job done.

2-Ingredient Healthy Vegan Quinoa Cookies
- 1 cup/225g/or two medium-sized bananas
- 1 cup/120g of quinoa flakes/ground quinoa
- 2 tablespoons of melted dark chocolate optional, or use sweeter chocolate if you don't like dark
- Preheat the oven to 170°C/ 340°F /Gas Mark 3.
- Place the bananas and quinoa flour in a food processor ( a blender should work just fine).
- Mix until combined, about 1 minute. Your cookie dough mixture should be creamy but firm enough to be scooped with an ice cream scoop or a spoon.
- If it's too creamy, add a little more quinoa flour (start with 1 tbsp, then add another 1 tbsp if necessary).
- Use an ice cream scoop with a spring release or a spoon to drop the cookies onto a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
- Flatten each cookie ball just a tiny bit with the palm of your hand or the back of a spoon.
- Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes (depending on your oven type), or until they look golden and crunchy on the outside.
- Take the cookies out of the oven, and allow to cool slightly.
- Drizzle some optional melted chocolate if you like, allow the chocolate to set and serve.
- How to store: These cookies will keep well in the fridge for up to 5 days.
