Quinoa Flour Hazelnut Spread Cookies

Quinoa flour has a strong aroma, to me it smells earthy, and taste earthy. Some say its aroma gives off a grass like smell and taste a little bitter.

I found when using quinoa flour its best to use ingredients that can compliment the earthy taste. Ingredients like cinnamon, bananas, maple syrup, bacon, oatmeal, chocolate, pecans, and walnuts are the ingredients I have used with good results.

Quinoa Flour Hazelnut Spread Cookies

  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup hazelnut spread
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl cream together butter, hazelnut spread, and powdered sugar.

Add quinoa flour a little at a time and mix completely with creamed mixture, until thoroughly blended.

Roll into about 18 balls, place on sprayed, with cooking spray, cookie sheet.

Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 10-12 minutes

Transfer to cooling rack carefully, so they don’t fall apart while they are hot.

After completely cooled frost with a little frosting, decorate with sprinkles, or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
