Deliciously Healthy Teff Pancakes

Teff pancakes are now one of my favourite types of pancakes. I’d read about Teff a few years back and was really keen to get my hands on it to try. I could only find it in small quantities but then on a trip to Canada I discovered Bulk Barn (aka heaven) and there was loads for the taking.

Teff Pancakes

Teff is a very tiny grain that’s primarily grown in Ethiopia. Teff has an endless list of benefits including being high protein, high fibre, gluten free and high iron.


  • 1 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 cups Teff Flour
  • 1 tbsp Arrowroot Powder
  • 1 tbsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Sugar, Honey or Agave (optional)
  • 1 egg (can be omitted for vegans)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Almond Milk


  1. Combine coconut flour, teff flour, arrowroot and baking soda in a bowl. Mix until evenly combined.  *If using coconut sugar this can be added at this stage
  2. Mix vanilla extract, and egg if using, into the milk
  3. Add the liquid to the flour mixture and mix well until thick.
  4. On a heated griddle or frying pan pour 1/2 cup for medium pancakes
  5. Turn pancakes when bubbles begin to form on top of the pancake.
  6. Top with your fav fruit to serve.
