Next time you meet friends for coffee, bring some coffee flour cookies and get them talking!
But what is Coffee Flour?
Coffee is a $30 Billion dollar industry in the U.S alone. Billions of coffee beans are harvested to sustain this growing market. Sadly, it also generates a lot of waste because following harvesting, the rest of the coffee pod is discarded. Until now…
Coffee flour is the next big leap in agricultural innovation. By using the otherwise unusable parts of the coffee pod, such innovation drastically reduces environmental waste and creates sustainable jobs in emerging markets.
Moreover, coffee flour tastes good and is great for your health. Apart from the hint of coffee flavor, it is rich in anti-oxidants and packed with potassium and iron so you can actually feel good about eating your cookie. And it is gluten-free!
Here is a recipe for gluten free cookies from fearlessdining.com:
