Quinoa Power Cookies

With the bajillions of recipes floating around out there for using quinoa, I'll chose another one next time.  These were okay, but were very similar to energy balls and I like those better.

2 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut (I left these out)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine quinoa, peanut butter, maple syrup, salt, and oats in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on low/medium speed, combine ingredients well.  Tip: Allow the quinoa to cool before mixing it in.
Stir in coconut and chocolate chips.  Scoop and mold dough into round, tablespoon-sized cookies.  Place cookies on parchment-paper-lined baking sheets and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until bottoms are nicely browned.  Allow to cool completely before storing.
