Dr Megan Rossi's Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies recipe
plant points


Makes 12 cookies

200g teff flour 1/2 tsp sea salt 1 ripe banana (approx 100g peeled), mashed 140g smooth peanut butter [swap: other nut or seed butter] 50ml date paste [swap: honey or maple syrup] 50ml extra virgin olive oil 100ml milk of choice 1 egg 1/4 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp almond extract 30g dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate bar Extra peanut butter, chocolate & a pinch of sea salt to top


Step 1

Pre-heat the oven to 180c and line or grease a baking tray.

Step 2

Combine the teff flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3

Add all of the wet ingredients (mashed banana, peanut butter, date paste, olive oil, milk, egg, vanilla extract and almond extract) and mix well until fully combined.

Step 4

Add the dark chocolate chips and fold into the mixture.

Step 5

Divide the mixture into 12 and roll into balls, then put on the baking tray.

Step 6

Using the palm of your hand, flatten each ball to your desired thickness.

Step 7

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes (this will keep the cookies quite soft - leave in for a few more minutes if you like a crunchier bite!)

Step 8

Remove from the oven. Let them cool and enjoy while they’re still warm, or pop into an airtight container in the fridge for later.

You should be able to find it in health stores, but buckwheat flour would work as an alternative :)

I have looked everywhere for Teff - where can you buy it, or is there an alternative to use ?
