Dark Chocolate, Hazelnut & Sea Salt Teff Cookies

teff-cookies

Teff is a fine grain with a mild, nutty flavour that has an excellent balance of amino acids and is also high in protein, calcium and iron – making it a much healthier, gluten-free alternative to conventional flour! It’s also an excellent source of resistant starch which can benefit blood sugar management, weight control and colon health. Wow! After a little bit of experimenting with Teff flour, I created these healthy cookies – decadent without being too sweet and extra nutty from the added hazelnuts! I hope you enjoy xo

Makes: 10-12 cookies

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Teff flour
