    mmmmm almond butter cookies look soo good!!! where did you get your chia seed meal?! i’ve only seen the “seed” form! i usually use flaxseed meal, so this is intriguing!!

    @Junia @ Mis Pensamientos, You can grind chia the same way you grind flax in a coffee mill.

    Um, how much baking powder? Also, I’m guessing that when you say, “Heat the almond flour for about 20 seconds …,” you mean, “Heat the almond butter …,” right?

    So, these sound fantastic. I will be looking into getting some teff flour and trying them. (I should prolly use up the mixes I currently have in my cupboard, tho.)

    @Christina, 1 teaspoon/4 grams. Yes, almond butter. Thanks for catching that.

    Oh these sound so good. Teff is one that I haven’t used yet, but want to try. I’ve been wanting to make flatbread with it. Ice cream season is just about on us and this is definitely going on my list of things to make!

    @Sue Mosier, Can you use tahini? That would work.

    I love how you made these into ice cream sandwiches. I’ve never tried baking with teff flour before, but next time I’m at the health food store, I will pick some up!

    Amy Reply:

    @Christine, Yes, pick some up and bake away. It’s delicious! I couldn’t resist making ice cream sandwiches because these cookies are the perfect texture for biting into while still frozen.

    Hugs,

    These are gorgeous!!! I can hardly wait to try some. Now that my order for whole organic teff from http://www.nutsonline.com came today (if I knew you’d be posting recipes using it, I’d have gotten more!!), I can make these. Good excuse to try my new ice cream maker too.

    These look great and I have Teff right now and this recipe will be my first try at it. I don’t have brown rice syrup but I have yacon syrup. Do you think that would work?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Jeri, That would be a whole lot of yacon syrup at $10 for a tiny little jar. It would work, though. If it was me, I’d do a couple tablespoons of yacon with some honey or agave. I like to use yacon sparingly because it’s so darn pricey.

    Those look wonderful! I just love almond butter. What do you think would be a good substitution for the applesauce? I’m allergic to apples so I need a similar, light exchange. I’ve heard bananas listed in some places but I don’t always want the banana flavor.

    Amy Reply:

    @Heather, What about a different fruit puree? Like maybe some kind of baby food? Or yogurt, but that would mean they’re not dairy-free.

    Amy I love teff! I can’t wait to try these cookies. Love it when you do vegan :) And the rice syrup! I bet the flavor of these cookies is incredible.

    Amy Reply:

    @Maggie, I was thinking it’s time to add in some different refined sugar-free sweeteners here. Rice syrup is earthy so it works really well with these cookies.

    I just ordered teff flour from Azure Standard, to try your chewy granola bars. I have only used the whole grain in a hot multi-grain cereal before. The Azure website said that there was no nutritional difference between the two varieties (I’d like to know which is right). I ordered the light, I think it was called ivory maybe, because I figured it wouldn’t change the color of the granola bars. I love recipes, like this one, where it uses ingredients I already have in the kitchen. I suppose most people don’t just happen to have teff flour in the kitchen, though! So I’ll try these in a week or two, and I’ll let you know if we like them. I just recently purchased your cookbook, and have a long list of recipes I want to try.

    @Kelli, I’ve read that the dark teff flour has a little more nutrition than the white but I don’t know for sure. I know most people don’t have teff flour in the kitchen but I think they should. :) Maybe I’ll be able to change that.

    Thank you for the teff tutorial! I know almost nothing about all of the different flours, but everyone keeps talking about teff. Even I, as dedicated as I am to all-purpose GF flour, might have to try teff.

    I wonder if I will ever stop making the connection to Chia Pet when I think of chia seeds, though! You can take the girl out of the 80s…

    Hi Amy,

    I made these teff cookies the day you posted this on your blog. I used maple syrup instead of brown rice syrup and these were wonderful. I gave one to my husband figuring that he would turn his nose up at them but he really like them. I thought I was just dreaming about them tasting chocolatey because I didn’t put chocolate in them, but like Ricki above said they do have a chocolate dimension to them. I made Ali’s teff bread a few weeks back, and I fell in love with Teff then so when I saw these awesome cookies I went to the cupboard to see if I had all the ingredients and started baking. I froze them and just like you said you can take them out of the freezer and bite into them and they are soft and cold. The perfect texture. I have yet to try them with ice cream, because I still have’nt got a new ice cream maker since I tried making your frozen lemon yogurt and ended up having to scrape and freeze, scrape and freeze. Any suggestions on a really good ice maker that is reasonably priced and known to work when you want it too.

    Amy, you are a master at what you do. Keep up the great work!

    I recently got some Himalayan pink salt from Sustainable Sourcing and I’ll have to try it out in this recipe. Their salt is gluten-free and made in an eco-conscious facility which is really important to me.
