Teff is a small gluten-free ancient grain with a mild nutty flavour. This tiny grain (seed) has more calcium than any other grain, is a complete protein and is the only grain that contains vitamin C. In this cookie recipe I combined teff flour with oats, nut butter, pumpkin seeds and dates, making this a healthy gluten-free cookie that will provide you with lasting energy, fiber and eight essential amino acids. Enjoy this tasty cookie for breakfast or as anytime energy snack. This healthy gluten-free cookie recipe is a keeper!
