Quinoa crunch

This is a slightly healthier cookie as it doesn’t contain wheat, quinoa also has a low GI (glycemic index). I was inspired by this recipe to make these.

Quinoa crunch, about 20 squares

50 grams butter

50 ml golden syryp

1/2 tsp vanilla sugar

150 ml quinoa puffs

Melt the butter, add the syrup and sugar and let it dissolve. Mix with the quinoa and spread out on a baking paper with a spatula. Form to one big thin oval cookie, make sure there are no holes in it. Bake in 175 centigrade oven for 12 minutes, leave to cool. When cool, cut into squares or break it up. Serve in an airtight container.

These can be enjoyed as any other cookie, or as a healthier option when the sugar cravings set in. Also suitable for people with celiac disease.
