Gluten Free Banana Teff Muffins

Current Obsession: Teff. 

Teff is the smallest grain in the world while also being one of the most nutritionally dense. Teff, a staple in Ethiopian cooking, is packed with fiber, protein and iron. It is also incredibly versatile in the kitchen and has been sneaking it's way into a lot of my recipes lately. If you adhere to a gluten free diet, teff is a gluten free grain that should absolutely become part of your wheelhouse.

I'm loving these Banana Teff Muffins that are perfect for when your bananas get just a little too brown. My breakfast of the moment is a bowl of Greek Yogurt topped with blueberries & cashews + a Banana Teff Muffin on the side. Oh, and of course a cup of coffee ;)
