Quinoa Chocolate/Peanut Butter Cookies

I found a great cookie recipe with Quinoa as the main ingredient (from pinterest).  I was a little surprised at first, but so excited to try.  These cookies turned out great.  These cookies are not too sweet, but have more of a granola bar type flavor.  I still really enjoyed them and my boys liked them too.  Just the perfect amount of sweetness and good [...]
