Gluten-Free Mocha Apricot Teff Pie

Treat yourself to a slice of decadence with our Mocha Apricot Teff Pie. This unique dessert combines the rich flavors of coffee and chocolate with the sweet and tangy taste of apricots, all nestled in a gluten-free teff crust. The result is a pie that’s not only delicious but also visually stunning, perfect for special occasions or a luxurious treat.

Teff flour, an ancient grain from Ethiopia, adds a nutty flavor and a tender, crumbly texture to the crust. It’s also rich in protein, fiber, and essential minerals, making this pie a healthier choice without sacrificing taste. The mocha filling is made with a blend of dark chocolate and espresso, creating a rich, smooth filling that’s perfectly complemented by the sweet-tart apricots. This pie is a showstopper, with its beautifully arranged apricots and glossy chocolate filling.

It’s sure to impress your guests and satisfy your sweet tooth. Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to treat yourself, our Mocha Apricot Teff Pie is the perfect choice.
