Teff flour Hazelnut Butter Cookies


Tasting mildly like chocolate, teff flour has plenty of natural sweetness and blends well with nuts and chocolate. These cookies, a classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate, are delightful treats.


1 1/2 cups teff flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, optional
1 1/8 cups peanut butter
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips




  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the teff flour and salt, if using. Set aside.
  3. Place the peanut butter, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla in a food processor, and blend until creamy. Add to the flour along with the chocolate chips, and stir to form a moist dough.
  4. Shape the dough into walnut-sized balls, and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet about 3/4-inch apart. Flatten gently with a fork.
  5. Bake 15 minutes, or until they lose their shine. Remove from the oven.
  6. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
