Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes
Makes 2 dozen cookies
  • 1½ cups teff flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, optional
  • 1⅛ cups peanut butter
  • ⅔ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup corn or canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the teff flour and salt, if using. Set aside. Place the peanut butter, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla in a food processor, and blend until creamy. Add to the flour along with the chocolate chips, and stir to form a moist dough. Shape the dough into walnut-sized balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about ¾-inch apart. Flatten gently with a fork. Bake 15 minutes, or until they lose their shine. Remove from the oven. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving. For a change, to make Hazelnut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies, use hazelnut butter instead of peanut butter. For this, you will also have to increase the teff flour to 2 cups and use ¾ cups chocolate chips.
