Teff Ginger Molasses Cookies

Teff is such a small grain that it is nearly impossible to hull before grinding into flour, making its nutritional value nearly identical to that of the whole grain. These cookies are a high-protein, non-gluten, nutritious treat. Nobody will ever believe that they are made without wheat, eggs, milk, butter or brown sugar.
