Featured Recipe: Gluten-Free Teff Flour Fudge Brownies

Teff Flour Fudge Brownies

With Teff Flour as the primary ingredient in this recipe, these chocolate brownies make a delicious gluten-free treat.

Teff leads all the grains – by a wide margin – in its calcium content, with a cup of cooked teff offering 123 mg, about the same amount of calcium as in a half-cup of cooked spinach. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin C, a nutrient not commonly found in grains.

Teff is also high in dietary fiber that is shown to benefit blood-sugar management, weight control, and colon health.

  • 1/3 cup teff flour

  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp cocoa
