Basic Teff Pancake Batter

Makes 8 Prep Time 40 minutes   Cook Time 1 minutes   Rated:

Teff is the new quinoa, I am told. You’re going to love it. It is another of the very popular ‘ancient’ grains that has been grown since around 1000BC in Ethiopia. Known for its nourishing properties, it is gluten free, and every single part of the grain and plant is used by the people who grow it. It is the tiniest grain in the world, but it packs a huge nutritional punch. Me? I love the flavour and the way these pancakes stick together without any gluten. Go Teff!
