Crispy Quinoa Cookies

I'd like to introduce you to quinoa cookies.  For anyone who can't have real flour, these are peanut butter cookies as you remember them: a little sweet, a little salty, chewy in the middle, crunchy around the edges and they even have a nut in the middle.  Yum!

Crispy Quinoa Cookies
Makes: 30 - 36 cookies

1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup rice flour
3/4 cup quinoa flakes
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Beat honey, brown sugar, butter, peanut butter, and vanilla in medium bowl until creamy.   Combine rice flour, quinoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl.  Add to mixture and beat until well blended.  Add nuts if desired.  Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 12 - 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.
