{Chewy} Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies

Believe me when I say I have been on a cookie-baking-binge lately.

I bring them to work for quick energy pick me ups, I crumble them onto yogurt or cereal and I usually dip a couple into some steamed milk before bed. Cannot get enough. In honour of What I Ate Wednesday, I will be sharing my new fave cookie recipe with you.. this is very fitting since it’s pretty much all I eat during my busy day anyways.

PS frozen cookies > cookies left out on the counter. Do it.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

My DSLR photo skills have been less-than-par lately, so today’s photos are brought to you by the iPhone 5. Which, I might add has never let me down or gives me any grief.

These cookies are:

+ chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside

+ protein packed via quinoa
+ addicting

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

1/2 cup whole oats
1/2 cup puffed quinoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
