Teff Waffles with Raw Chia Marmalade (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Teff Waffles (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

These tender teff waffles are high in protein and iron! Note #1: you can substitute teff flour for buckwheat flour 1:1. You can substitute sorghum flour with oat flour or millet flour 1:1 — tho I haven’t tested these waffles with oat/millet (leave me a note in the comments if you try with oat/millet)!

Prep Time:


Cook Time:



8-10 waffles

1 1/2 cups sorghum flour

2 cups Pacific Foods Vanilla Oat Non-Dairy Beverage

4 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil OR mild-tasting virgin olive oil

1 3/4 tablespoons aluminum-free baking powder

2 farm fresh eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

tiny pinch Celtic sea salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom + more, to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon + more, to taste

Optional: add up to 3/4 cup add-ins like fresh berries, nuts, chocolate etc.

Coconut oil + basting brush OR spray coconut oil, for oiling the waffle maker

To serve: raw chia marmalade, raw honey, quartered grapefruit, blackberries, slivered almonds, bee pollen, dried or fresh edible flowers

InstructionsPreheat your non-stick waffle iron. I use an electric All-Clad round waffle maker and set it to medium-high heat aka “3” on the dial.

To the bowl of a high powered blender, add all of the ingredients (except optional add-ins): teff flour, sorghum flour, Pacific Foods Vanilla Oat Milk, melted coconut oil / olive oil, baking powder, eggs, vanilla extract, sea salt, cardamom and cinnamon. Blitz on high until smooth and creamy. It will be slightly thicker than pancake batter. You could also do this all in a large bowl and beat everything together by hand. Stir in any optional add-ins.

Once your waffle iron is nice and hot, brush or spray coconut oil over the waffle grids (top and bottom). Pour scant 1/2 cup waffle batter into your waffle maker, making sure to add a relatively even amount to each quadrant. Cook according to waffle maker directions, about 2-3 minutes per waffle.

If you find your first waffle is slightly too thin for your liking, add 1 tablespoon more sorghum to your batter until you reach your desired consistency. Alternatively, if that first waffle is too thick add 1 tablespoon more plant milk until you reach your desired texture.

Once each waffle is done, remove each waffle carefully (they’re relatively fragile) using two forks to lift each waffle out. Stack each waffle on a plate as you go, covering them with a clean kitchen cloth to keep them warm. Make sure to brush or spray more oil onto the waffle grids before cooking each waffle.

To serve, top with raw chia marmalade, raw honey, quartered grapefruit slices, blackberries, slivered almonds, bee pollen and dried or fresh edible flowers. Of course, you can simply top these babies with all of your favorite things! I personally think the citrus/honey/blackberry combo is magnificent, with some nuts on top for crunch. And bee pollen / flowers are just pretty. But do you!
