Enjoy the rich and nutty flavors of Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies. These cookies, made with teff flour, are naturally gluten-free and filled with rich chocolate chips and crunchy pecans. Teff provides essential amino acids and 7 grams of protein per serving, making these cookies a nutritious and delicious treat. The nutty flavor of teff complements the chocolate chips and pecans, creating a perfect snack for any occasion.

Cookies are a great anytime treat. I love hosting cookie swaps around the holidays too. Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies, and these are gluten-free and vegan, making them perfect for people with allergies. You can leave out the pecans or coconut to make them even more allergy-friendly. You could even add in your favorite dried fruit too!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Then mix the wet ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Add the dry to the wet and mix well.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips, coconut and pecans. The dough is very thick so you may need to use your hands to knead these in.
  5. Use a 1 tablespoon scoop to get a portion of the dough, place on the prepared cookie sheet, and press down with the back of a spatula to flatten. Repeat with all the dough.
  6. Bake for 12 to 13 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookies are brown.
