Teff Cookies at FreshBitesDaily.com Follow Me on Pinterest This simply recipe combines the nutritional powerhouse teff with nut butter and maple syrup to create a simple cookie. Teff is loaded with minerals and protein and is becoming a popular gluten-free flour option (read more here about teff).

These cookies are easy to make and store well in an air-tight container. They are certainly dessert, but a dessert you can feel good about serving to your children.

I love recipes with only a handful of ingredients. Teff flour is such a hearty, nutritious flour. These cookies look great!

These look delicious, I absolutely love peanut butter cookies. Do you think they would work with raw honey instead of maple syrup?

I just bought a bag of teff (whole grain) at my local health food store. So I was glad to come across your recipe on works for me wednesday. I think I will make it for my kid’s after-school snack. I look forward to reading more of your blog.

I love baking with teff flour. I also include it in my “multi-grain” blend.

This looks almost exactly like the recipe I’ve been making for years from the back of the Bob’s Red Mill package for teff flour.

Are these cookies crunchy? I have been looking for a gluten free option that has a crunch to it. Most seem to be more chewy.

Made these today and they are tasty but terribly dry. Add an egg if you make these and you will enjoy them.
