Amazing Teff Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup roasted almond butter, unsalted
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1 1/2 cups Teff flour

1/8 tsp salt
dark chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Oil two cookie sheets.
  • In a food processor, place the almond butter, vanilla, apple sauce and maple syrup.  Mix to cream the ingredients together (2 minutes scraping the sides as needed)
  • Add the Teff flour and salt to the food processor and pulse until combined.
  • Scoop batter to make balls 1 1/4" in diameter and then arrange in rows--leave an 1" of space around each one.
  • Flatten with the back of a fork each ball of batter.
  • Arrange dark chocolate chips evenly on top of each cookie.
  • Bake for 13 minutes in the center of the oven.  The bottoms should be slightly golden but the tops will still be slightly soft.
  • Let cool on a rack.
  • Keep in an airtight container in your pantry or on the counter for a few days.  © Artsy-Foodie 2010 All rights Reserved
