Tasty Tuesday ~ Quinoa Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Welcome back for another Tasty Tuesday! As I said in my last post, I was able to purchase a 5 pound bag of quinoa at Costco a few weeks ago. I had dreams of healthier side dishes with dinner and perfect leftovers for our daughter's lunch, but these have been quickly dashed as it seems I am the only person in this family that enjoys quinoa in its traditional form.

My husband much prefers rice. He'll be a good sport, but in all honesty, he just doesn't like it. In the past, Baby Snob has gobbled it up faster than I could keep it on her plate. Recently, however, every time I put it in front of her, she pushes it away and simply says, "NO." At first my immediate reply was, "But you love quinoa."

Then, I slowly realized my slippery slope into the world of "Things My Mother Said That I Will Never Say To My Kids." For the record, I don't remember my mom ever saying that, but it is just such a mom thing to say - you know? My solution for the time being is to use quinoa in places they least expect it, and therefore, not feeling bad about yet another bulk-sized purchase gone wrong (we've all been there, right? You buy the 10 pounds of whatever, only to let it go bad because who can figure out what to do with 10 pounds of anything?!). These chewy, soft cookies were a hit with everyone I served them to. You would never know they have quinoa in them!
