Mincemeat Quinoa Flake Cookies
prep: 15 mins / cook: 25 mins / inactive: 0 mins / total: 40 mins / quantity: 14 cookies Print recipe?
Do you make your own mince pies? I don’t. ? My excuse is because one year I made over 10,000. Not in a year, just in December. I CANNOT bring myself to make any more mince pies. Maybe one day when I’m older and greyer and the memories have faded.
You’d also think that having made that many I wouldn’t be able to face eating them either. Folks, you could NOT be more wrong. Every year I can’t wait till December and can legitimately eat mince pies. I ❤ mincemeat and I’m always looking for ways to use it that’s not in a pie.
And I’m so in love with these biscuits. Bananas, peanut butter, Hodmedod’s delicious quinoa flakes, rolled oats and glorious mincemeat. That’s it, just those five ingredients.
Even though we’re post Christmas and we’ve probably eaten more food in the last couple of days than we normally do in a week we still want something tasty right? We also don’t want to faff with any more washing up either so we also have one bowl loveliness right here. Anyone else feel like they spend more time washing up than actual cooking ??
Smooth peanut butter is perfect for these cookies. Though lets face it, what ISN’T smooth peanut butter perfect for?
And who doesn’t want a meltingly soft yet thick, chewy cookie as an incentive to get out of bed on these cold, dark mornings? Because these Mincemeat Quinoa Flake Cookies are a perfect grab and go breakfast. They’re equally as good for those 3pm hungries with a giant cuppa something.
The bananas make them naturally sweet and I’ve made them SO many times now I’ve lost count – swapping out the mincemeat for sultanas, goji berries, toasted pecans, chocolate chips …
PLEASE make them, then we can sit and talk about other awesome flavour combinations!
