“Like Fine Wine, A Recipe Will Also Age With Time!”
There is a sequel to this post, but you don’t have to wait for a year, not even months….I will share the ending in just a matter of days, BONUS! When I went to the kitchen to make some changes to a favorite recipe, I really didn’t realize I would walk out of the kitchen with two completely new recipes.
The inspiration goes all the way back to the beginning, when CafeTerraBlog was just wee tyke. I shared a recipe I adapted and made my own, Butterscotch Craisin Quinoa Cookies. What I didn’t realize until a few days ago, that quinoa cookie recipe was my very first recipe I ever created, and started my blog adventure!
Thank you to a special someone for helping me to feel inspired, and add some flare to a truly loved cookie in my family. AliSweeney.com contacted me last week, and asked if she could share my Butterscotch Craisin Quinoa Cookie recipe on her site. I was truly honored, but immediately realized I needed to make more, and take new pictures. Thank you so much Alison for sharing my recipe, I was so honored!
When I started blogging, I was all about the food. My obsession with food photography has evolved over time, and become my second love…..along side recipe developing of course!
Look how far I have come. Here is my original picture I took back in the beginning of 2010, almost three years ago…..WOW time does fly!
AND now my new fun pictures….gosh I love my precious camera!!! Honestly, original picture, or today’s picture….those cookies ALL look pretty fantastic to me!
A healthier cookie with no guilt involved....even after the fourth cookie!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease sheet pan with cooking spray.
Quinoa should be rinsed before cooked/eaten. In strainer, rinse quinoa well. Place quinoa on a towel or cheese cloth, and squeeze out excess water from rinsed quinoa.
In blender - Add biscoff cookies and blend until they are crumbles, add rinsed and drained quinoa, and blend cookies and quinoa together. Sit aside.
In medium bowl, add canola oil, brown sugar, vanilla, and almond milk, mix ingredients together well.
In small bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, mix ingredients together well.
Mix together wet and dry ingredients, and add quinoa, white chocolate chips, and craisins, and mix well.
Use a tablespoon for each cookie, or you can make them smaller if you choose. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes depending on oven.
These cookies are fun all year long, but since everyone is making cookies for the holidays…..how about including a healthier cookie on your platter this year?
Now that I have made these cookies in four different variations, I believe this cookie could continue to evolve overtime! Have fun and try out your favorite flavor combination!
What is your favorite cookie to make during the holidays?
Do you remember your first recipe you created for your blog?
