Found A Good Mock Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got Quinoa flour instead of Quinoa flakes for a Betty Hagman recipe for mock oatmeal cookies. Does it really matter in texture and taste before I open up the bag? Or the big question how can Quinoa flour be used...such as a substitute for another flour? Are there good recipes out there using the flour?

Though I haven't tried such ingredients yet, it does make sense that the texture is part of the reason for the flakes rather than the flour.

Sure there are plenty of uses for the flour, but the real question is whether you will be making anything that would turn out well with it.

Seems this thread keeps me thinking about oatmeal cookies. Either with or without raisins. An oatmeal/peanut butter cookie sounds great too.

Then it hit me - suppose you make popcorn, then put it in a blender to break it up into small pieces? Though not exactly oatmeal, it might give a nice texture to cookies.

Anyone ever try this?

Quinoa flakes and flour will be pretty different. Flakes look similar to oatmeal. Read this recent thread if you haven't seen it already... I made the cookies you're probably talking about...they were good ! You can use the flour as a sub in other recipes. It has a nuttier taste, so remember that when you're subbing. http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=23839

You can get some recipes for the flour here (will have to convert *some* of these to gluten-free):

Thanks for reminding me Jen. I keep wanting to try this recipe b/c I have a box of Quinoa flakes downstairs. I think I'll give it a try tonight! :)

Jen - I made quinoa cookies from the recipe you posted on the other thread and they turned out great! My "barometer" is always how my kids and hubby like them, and they did! They only lasted a day.

Oh-so glad to hear it! We actually ate all ours too--usually I freeze some, but not this time.

:D Thanks guys

I'm always learning something new here. There are soooo many things to learn about this diet. It helps to bounce some ideas off someone who knows.

Have a great day.
