Shape Up Saturday: 21 Day Fix Approved Quinoa Cookies

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies made out of quinoa?  Yea, I was surprised too the first time I read that.  I saw a Team Beach Body coach share this recipe from the TBB website and I had to share it with y’all as well.  It sounds really strange but I must say I was highly impressed with how good these were.  I had some coworkers and family try them and they agreed that these were really good.  I got the recipe from TBB here.  Also, you should definitely subscribe to the TBB blog if you are looking for fitness/nutrition tips to come into your inbox!
