Punku Quinoa Cookies – Gluten Free

We recently had the pleasure of tasting some almost guilt free cookies made from Quinoa and Chia Seeds!

A local customer of ours Patricia Estivariz founder of Punku Foods,  imports quinoa cookies from Bolivia, Estivariz’s native country, and sells them in Britain and more locally our health food shop in Braintree Essex.

There are two flavours in the range Chocolate chip and Mango and Orange, both are suitable for vegans, free from wheat,dairy and eggs.

The first thing I liked about these cookies were they come individually wrapped, so you don’t feel temped to eat the whole box, although you could easily. Both cookies have a nice crumble in the mouth texture and my favorite of the two is the chocolate chip, that has melt in your mouth chocolate chunks!

Now for a little bit of background…. as well as stocking these in store, we also sell them on our webshop www.simplyhealthfood.co.uk

A healthy alternative snack!

Quinoa [chenopodium quinoa willd] has been enjoyed as an important food crop in the Andes for more than 6,000 years. More precious than gold, this powerhouse grain has now been re-discovered by the world marketplace because of its delicious flavor and high nutritional value.

 

Classified as a ‘supercrop’ by the United Nations for its high protein content, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it an unusually complete food.

 

We’ve spun this healthy, golden grain into our Quinoa Cookies, made with organic Royal Quinoa, which is grown only in the Bolivian Andes, at an altitude of 13,000 feet, which produces the finest quality quinoa in the world.

 

Quinoa is delicious and nutritious, rich in high quality proteins, vitamins and minerals, and essential amino acids necessary for optimal nutrition.

 

Quinoa has been selected by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations as one of the crops that will play an important role in ensuring food security around the world in the 21st century. The National Academy of Sciences of the United States has rated quinoa as the most nourishing grain in the world.

 

We have packed our cookies for you in individual convenient single serving packets. Perfect to grab for a quick snack, and for school lunches and backpacks!
