Vegan Banana Teff Pancakes (gluten, dairy free, nut free)

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 truly cake-like.  We tried for years to find a suitable dairy free, gluten free pancake and when we came across a teff recipe for pancakes we quickly made it our own through experimentation.  Believe it or not this batter contains zero egg!  We also found the flavor was best by just using water.  It's such a simple recipe, so perfect for those lazy weekend mornings, with so much wonderful flavor.  We generally make them plain, but once in a while add a banana for real knock-out flavor.  

-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 olive oil or melted coconut oil 
-3 tablespoons honey (we tried every alternative sweetener and honey was the best for texture and taste)
-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!

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.
