  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 cup light brown sugar

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

  • 1 cup quinoa flakes

  • ½ cup oat bran

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment paper.

  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda together in a bowl.

  3. Beat butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat 1 egg into butter mixture. Beat second egg into mixture along with the vanilla extract; add flour mixture and stir until it just forms a batter. Fold chocolate chips, quinoa flakes, oat bran, and cream through the batter to distribute throughout.

  4. Roll dough into small balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet with at least 2 inches between balls.
