Banana Almond Teff Porridge
Health Highlights


1 cup Teff grain, uncooked
1 1/2 cup Water
1 1/2 cup Almond milk, unsweetened
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 medium Banana (s) (sliced)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup Sliced almonds
1 tsp Maple syrup, pure (optional)


Bring a heavy saucepan to medium heat. Add teff, water, almond milk, coconut oil, cinnamon, banana slices and sea salt to the pan. Stir well to combine.

Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat to medium-low, cover and cook at a simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Make sure you give the mixture a stir from time to time to prevent the teff from sticking. If the mixture gets too thick, you can add more water or almond milk but I didn’t need any extra.

Once the teff has cooked and the texture is to your liking, portion into bowls. Top each bowl with a sprinkle of almonds, extra banana slices and a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
