Author Notes: These cookies have a wonderful peanuty taste thanks to the quinoa flakes. We have someone with a nut allergy in our house so this a great way to approximate the joy of peanut butter cookies, but much healthier to boot! The recipe was inspired by a quinoa cookie in Good to the Grain by Kim Boyce. —handknit
