The aim of the study was to determine the effect of supplementation of legume flour cowpea and Bambara groundnut from Burkina Faso at different levels 15%, 30% et 50% on the nutritional quality and acceptability of millet biscuits. The macronutrients, iron and zinc contents were determined using standard AOAC methods. The acceptability test of cookies were performed with a panel of 30 tasters. The protein content of cookies increased proportionally with the supplementation. The protein contents of cowpea cookies were higher than Bambara groundnut cookies, 12.82 g / 100 g and 10.47 g / 100 g respectively. Supplemented cookies have low iron and zinc contents, 2.23 mg / 100 g and 1.87 mg / 100 g respectively for cowpea and Bambara groundnut. On the organoleptic level, up to 15% supplementation, there is no significant difference in odor and taste.
