Vegan Banana Teff Pancakes

When it comes to pancakes we are all about the teff in this house.  I happen to adore the flavor of teff and these pancakes are lovely.  We tried for years to find a suitable dairy free and gluten free pancake and so when we came across THIS teff recipe for pancakes by Tori’s gfcfsf blog, we fell in love! Believe it or not this recipe is egg free.  We made a few minor adjustments to the original recipe, but all in all, it’s a great one.  And so easy to make.  Perfect for those lazy weekend mornings, with so much wonderful flavor.  We like them plain or with banana.  Sooo good!  
Ingredients
-1 1/2 cups teff flour (do not pack down flour…unless you want a really thick pancake)
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon cream of tarter
-1 1/2 cups filtered water
-3 tablespoons walnut oil
-3 tablespoons honey or coconut nectar
-1 ripe banana – mashed up with a fork

How To
1.  Mix together dry ingredients
2.  Mix together wet ingredients

3.  Add wet to dry, incorporate

4.  Add to griddle, flip, eat, enjoy!
 
Toppings
Teff flour is very flavorful, so we usually don’t add much, just jelly or syrup, but once in a while we get fancy.  A fruit compote is a favorite and easy to create by simmering frozen or fresh fruit (such as blueberries or strawberries).  We prefer to add a touch of honey and that’s it for a fresh fruit sauce.
