Teff Pancakes

with Goji Berries and Maca

Coconut, maca, goji berries, and teff will give you a boost and get your day off to a great start. For a sweeter variation, use a little more teff flour and less maca.


½ tsp Sea Salt
⅓ Cup Navitas Naturals Goji Berries
¼ Cup Navitas Naturals Maca Powder
¼ Cup Honey or Maple Syrup
¼ Cup Vanilla Extract
1¾ Cup Teff Flour
4 Eggs
2 Cup Apple Juice
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
for frying Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil


Whisk the eggs in a medium-size bowl. Stir in the juice, honey, and vanilla. Add the flour, goji berries, maca powder, and salt and stir until well combined.

Heat some coconut oil in a heavy skillet or griddle over medium heat and brush it over the surface when it melts. Ladle the batter onto the hot pan to make pancakes of whatever size you like. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the tops are bubbly and the edges are dry. Turn the pancakes over and cook for about 1 more minute, until the bottoms are golden brown (if using ivory teff flour) or brown (if using brown teff flour). Serve immediately. 

Swap dried cranberries, raisins, or other dried fruits for the goji berries.

Replace the maca powder with another 1/4 cup teff flour, or 1/4 cup of any gluten-free flour. (If you use coconut flour, you may need to add a bit more liquid.)

Yield: 4-6
