Banana Quinoa Cookie Cakes

few months ago I made some super yummy Banana Bread Cookies from The Girl Who Ate Everything but when I decided to make more I wanted to make them a little bit on the healthyish side. Total credit goes to the original recipe, these are just a better option for those wanting to avoid some ingredients & they still taste pretty amazing!
