You wouldn’t even know these were gluten free cookies! Made with quinoa flakes.

I’ve never seen quinoa flakes before. They’re kinda like quick cooking oats in appearance but maybe a little smaller.

I just guesstimated a half cup of honey.

Same with the peanut butter.

The butter was very cold so I left it in the bowl along with the peanut butter and honey for a while before I creamed it together.

In another bowl I added rice flour, yes, I actually mixed the dry ingredients in a separate bowl!

And because no recipe is any good until you change something on it I added some butter scotch chips.

The dough seemed really soft so I added the remaining rice flour I had left in the bag. It was still rather soft so I popped it in the fridge for a few minutes.
