Chewy fig & gingerbread cookies

These are from the same recipe as the Chewy gingerbread cookies however I have added some things and taken some away just to keep the variety happening 🙂 Nothing like change 🙂 These are GF and DF, have that same chewiness and added texture from the quinoa and figs! YUM!
