READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Annabell B

They are good... I love them, even though I can eat gluten. They are a bit thick and dense, but very tasty.

These were pretty good, for vegan. I did use regular flour, and 1/4 cup each maple syrup and agave nectar. Otherwise I did not deviate from the recipe. These cookies were done at 12 mins in my convection oven.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups teff flour (we use Bob's Red Mill Teff Flour)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl combine dry ingredients, set aside.

  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, blend well.
  5. Shape dough into walnut sized balls.
  6. Place on a slightly greased cookie sheet and flatten gently with the tines of a fork.
