  • 1 cup whole grain teff
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin unrefined coconut oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 banana; sliced (save a few slices for topping)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup crushed or sliced almonds
  • Maple syrup for drizzling on top (optional)


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
