Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod
Quinoa adds a nice little crunch to these thick and hearty cookies!
Servings: 3 dozen cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and baking soda. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the applesauce and mix until combined. Stir in the raisins.
Slowly add the dry ingredients into liquid ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the oats, quinoa, and chocolate chips.
Spoon about a tablespoon of dough onto a large baking sheet. Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are just barely set. Remove cookies from baking sheet and cool on a wire cooling rack.
