Delight in the crisp and flavorful Lemon Ivory Teff Pizzelles. These pizzelles, made with teff flour, are naturally gluten-free and filled with the fresh taste of lemon. Teff provides essential amino acids and 7 grams of protein per serving. 

Brown teff can be used to make a more rustic, coarsely textured pizzella. To make almond brown teff pizzelle omit the lemon zest and replace lemon extract with almond extract. Replace the ivory teff flour with brown teff flour.
