Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325° F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together cooked and lightly toasted quinoa, quinoa flakes, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda and chocolate chips. In a food processor, mix together amaranth flour and vanilla seeds. Add dates and pulse to crumble, then add to the dry mix.

In a food processor, mix the shortening until soft, then slowly add the agave syrup to make a smooth, creamy consistency. With the processor running, add the mashed sweet potato and process until combined.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients together to form the dough; do not overmix. Mold the dough into 2 logs about 4 inches wide and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

Reduce oven to 225° F. Cut the logs into about 30 slices. Place slices on a baking sheet and bake again for about 50 minutes, rotating the cookie sheet every 20 minutes or so.

Serve with Coconut Bliss and caramel sauce, if you like.
