Quinoa is pronounced “delicious.”
Actually it’s pronounced KEEN-wa.
You may have heard quinoa referred to as an ancient grain. It’s not really a grain, but a seed. And the tiny seeds are total nutritional rock stars.
Why use quinoa? Can’t you just use gluten free oats in those cookies?
It’s a good idea to vary your diet, don’t you think? Quinoa is interesting. It tastes a bit grassy, but mellows significantly after toasting. When I don’t have time to toast quinoa first before baking, I add dried coconut and mesquite flour to offset the sometimes overly assertive taste.
