Dark Chocolate & Fig Teff Cookies


Makes 12 cookies

  • 3/4 Cup Ivory Teff Flour
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

  • 1/4 Cup Rice Malt Syrup
  • 2 x 20ml tbsp Hulled Tahini

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Combine the teff flour and sea salt in a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg into the well and lightly whisk it with a spoon. Add the melted coconut oil, rice malt syrup, tahini and vanilla and mix everything together until well combined. Stir through the chopped dark chocolate and figs. Chill the mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes.
3. Once the mixture has firmed up, divide the mixture into 12 portions, shape the portions into balls and lightly press each ball onto the prepared baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
4. Allow the cookies to cool before eating. Store in an airtight container.
