Rosemary, butter nut & teff cookies

Standard

A twist on the traditional oat cookies made for Anzac Day – replacing oats with teff. A fine grain, that comes in a variety of colours from white and red to dark brown. It packs a serious nutritional punch. Like quinoa, teff has an excellent balance of amino acids, and it is also high in protein, calcium & iron.

Teff is high in resistant starch type of dietary fiber providing sustainable energy without getting that high spike in sugar levels, therefore it can benefit to those who are on blood sugar management weight control. Teff is also a gluten free grain making a great substitute for many gluten free recipes. It can also be used instead of rice. It has a mild nutty flavour, therefore making it great in baking recipes!
