Quinoa Breakfast Cookies

This is a great way to use up leftover quinoa. I always have a container of cooked quinoa in the fridge ready for salads and weeknight dinners, so these cookies can come together in 5 minutes on a lazy morning. This recipe is very versatile, so go ahead and experiment with other fun add-ins!

    Did you mean for it to read 1/4C peanut butter and nuts? Seems like a lot. Curious? Also is this for one serving?

    I have made these breakfast cookies twice and they are delicious. Perfect make-ahead breakfast. I’m a BLE-er and this fits perfectly with my batch food prep.
