These teff and banana pancake are so delicious, sweet and are a perfect way to introduce this ancient grain in to your diet.
I have been testing all different types of grains the last few months. My pantry is some what of a gluten free flour haven. I have so many!
Teff was a flour I kept hearing about. I knew little about it except that it was a grain that is used as a staple flour native to Ethiopia. They use it to make fermented pancake style bread called Enjera, eaten in almost every Ethiopian household.
But this little grain has so much more to offer. It is an ancient grain and one of the smallest of all grains too. Although small it boasts a lot of benefits. It has more than 5 times more fibre than typical wheat flour, it is also high in magnesium and calcium too.
Banana and Teff
Being a naturally gluten free flour it was a no brainer to try this flour out on my kids first to see what they think. You know how picky kids are! That is where these banana and Teff pancakes come into the picture.
I kid you not they taste exactly like regular banana pancakes. Maybe it’s because I have tried so many different flours that this recipe really did not have an after taste at all. They tasted like banana..pancakes!
My kids scoffed them down, and I even stole a few too realising how delicious they were.
So if you wanted to experiment with new gluten free alternative flours, definitely pick up some Teff flour and give this recipe a try.
