Recipe: Almond Meal Quinoa Flake Chocolate Chip Cookies (for Santa)

When most people get bored, they watch TV or play on their phones, but when our co-founder Ravi gets bored, he makes mass quantities of homemade almond milk. If you've ever read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" you know it's a slippery slope from having a glass of milk to needing a cookie to go with it - which is why you may have noticed a lot of cookie recipes on the blog lately! These vegan, gluten-free cookies pair perfectly with a tall glass of almond milk - leave them out for hipster Santa and you'll be sure to get just what you wished for.
