Serves: Makes 2 large 4 square waffles; serves 2-4
Teff is a super food. Paired with cocoa and dark chocolate, these waffles are loaded with iron, calcium, and magnesium just to mention a few benefits. I like to add a little maca and lucuma to enhance my super powers. Don’t have them on hand? No worries. Substitute teff flour! Note: These are totally fun to eat with your hands.
4 organic eggs
1 cup water
4 tablespoons organic maple syrup
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
2/3 cup brown teff flour*
½ cup organic cocoa or cacao powder
½ cup organic dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons organic maca powder
2 teaspoons organic lucuma powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon organic extra virgin coconut oil
Preheat waffle iron. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Stir in water, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add flour, cocoa, chocolate chips, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined.
Brush top and bottom surface of waffle iron with oil, then ladle in enough batter to cover bottom surface of iron. Close waffle iron and cook until steaming stops or the waffle is golden brown.
Serve immediately as is, or with your favorite toppings.
Notes* If not using the lucama or maca powder, add an additional 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons teff flour.
