Take your pick of seasonal organic fruits: blueberries, peaches, apples, cranberries, and mix and match with a some dried organic fruits like dates or mangoes, for extra sweetness and variety. Enjoy a fruit crisp topped with yogurt for a nourishing start of your day, or whipped cream or ice cream for a delicious dessert. Teff Flour makes a great fruit crisp topping. Sweetened with maple syrup and vanilla, a little cinnamon. YUM!
You can find my original vegan, gluten-free recipe for Apple or Pear Crisp that I developed for the Teff Company back in 1990 in my first cookbook, The Quick and Easy Organic Gourmet. These days, I prefer using extra virgin coconut oil in all my pastry making. I no longer use corn or canola oil, not even GMO-Free canola and corn oil. The health and flavor benefits of using organic extra virgin coconut oil are many. Likewise for teff, an 8 oz serving of teff is loaded with calcium, iron and potassium. And teff flour is gluten-free with a slightly chocolate flavor. Delicious!
Have fun baking!
