There’s nothing like a few warm cookies on a cool fall afternoon in the northeast, especially if they have health benefits! These cookies get the best of both worlds, they’re tasty but they’re also loaded with nutrients. The teff flour adds extra fiber and a complete source of protein. Teff, a super grain like quinoa, has all 9 essential amino acids. Protein is not only important for proper cell function and rejuvenation, but it’s also great because it helps to promote satiety, helping to keep you fuller for longer. These tasty cookies are also made with maple syrup, which packs 54 antioxidants alone!
To mix it up you can swap cranberries for dried tart cherries. Tart cherries are great for a post-workout recovery snack as they help prevent sore muscles. For an added sweet, you can also add vegan chocolate chips!
