“I’ve been enjoying using Teff for breakfast because of the high fiber, protein, manganese, iron, and calcium that it provides. Seriously, I probably eat this stuff everyday,” – Edgar Castrejon

Start your morning with the delightful flavors of Banana Nut Waffles. These waffles, made with teff flour, are naturally gluten-free and filled with the sweetness of bananas and the crunch of nuts. Teff provides essential amino acids and 7 grams of protein per serving, making these waffles a nutritious and satisfying breakfast. The nutty flavor of teff complements the bananas and nuts, creating a perfect morning treat.

  1. Place flour through vanilla in a high speed blender and mix thoroughly.
  2. Stir in walnuts.
  3. Heat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When a drop of water thrown on the waffle iron sizzles, spoon on enough batter to cover ¾ of the surface.
  4. Close the lid and bake until the waffle is golden brown and the edges are crisp. Since teff contains no gluten, the waffles will be fragile, so remove them gently by prying up one corner with a fork and then sliding a spatula underneath to lift them up.
  5. Blend all ingredients into a high speed blender (then add the nuts and mix well) and cook on a waffle maker.
