This delightful, nourishing snack is not just another cookie - it is a testament to the ancient grain of Africa, teff, fused beautifully with the tangy sweetness of cranberries. Originating from Ethiopia, teff is a tiny grain packed with significant nutrients like calcium, iron, and protein. Teff Cranberry Cookies, though not traditionally Ethiopian, represent a modern adaptation of utilizing this wonderful grain in contemporary baking, offering a healthier alternative to everyday treats.
At Bale Moya, we’re passionate about utilizing traditional ingredients in innovative ways, this recipe aims to introduce more people to the benefits of teff while satisfying their sweet cravings. The cookies are slightly sweet with a hint of tanginess from the cranberries, and they have a soft, almost cake-like texture. The teff flour and almonds provide a good dose of fiber and protein, making these cookies a healthy choice for a snack or dessert.
