Smiling at the memory of teaching my hands on farm to table cooking class at Esalen Institute and showing how to make these delicious, absolutely scrumptious Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Brownies, which happen to be gluten free. You can make these brownies with a variety of nut flours like hazelnut and almond flours. Teff flour, coconut flour and brown rice flour work well, too. And sometimes, I use fair trade organic cocoa and other times fair trade organic cacao powder. Always fair trade organic dark chocolate chips. Grass raised organic butter or virgin coconut oil and maple syrup adds richness and sweetness. Here at home, my edible calendula flowers are in bloom and grateful to Tracey Eller for taking this photo and styling it with as Kate Kilday of Woodland Essence taught me long ago that calendula flowers are like eating sunshine. Thanks Kate! You are right.
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.
