I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Nutella Quinoa Breakfast Cookies

We had warm quinoa with apple for breakfast and had some leftover, so I decided to use it in a cookie recipe.

1  1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup nutella
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract

1  1/4 cup cooked quinoa (with 1/2 shredded apple)
1/2 cup coconut
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix the four dry ingredients together, set aside
Cream the next seven ingredients together.  Add the dry to the wet in increments, combine well. Lastly add the quinoa, coconut and chocolate chips.

Line a baking sheet with parchment and drop heaping tablespoons of batter at least 1 inch apart.
Bake at 375F for 12-15 minutes. Makes 30

Great for breakfast or anytime.
