Ingredients

Makes 14 cookies

  • 2 Large Ripe Bananas, Mashed
  • 2 Eggs (or vegan eggs, either works!)
  • 1/3 Cup Nut Butter (Elise used almond)
  • 1/4 Cup Ivory Teff Teeds
  • 1.5 Cups Ivory Teff Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tbsp Honey (sub for maple syrup for vegan option)
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon 
  • 1/4 Cup Pepitas
  • 1/4 Raisins
  • 1/4 Cup Walnuts, Chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, fan-forced.
  2. Combine all the wet ingredients in one bowl (bananas, eggs, honey) and the dry in another (teff seeds, teff flour, baking soda, cinnamon).
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well to combine.
  4. Fold through the raisins, pepitas, walnuts and chocolate.
  5. Spoon mixture onto a baking tray. The mixture will be quite wet, so use the back of a spoon or your fingers to gently shape into cookies and top with more choc chips and walnuts.
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes.
  7. Store in the fridge and enjoy cold, or I like to warm mine in the microwave for 10-12 seconds before eating! This recipe is SO versatile! You can mix and match all the different nuts and seeds to suit what you have on hand.
