I only modified this recipe a bit from the little booklet that came with the Teff grain I bought recently. For instance, the recipe didn't call for any liquid and it obviously needed some!
To make teff flour, you grind the whole teff grain in a coffee grinder, blender or Vita-Mix dry container. Whiz until fine. The grain is soft, so it doesn't take long.
Teff Mocha Cookies
