SPICED APPLE TAHINI TEFF BREAD

with Pumpkin Seeds

A seasonal treat filled with warming flavours, seasonal spices and a touch of maple syrup as a sweetener.  This recipe is a feel-good cake ~ I tested it many times & happily ate it; it goes great with tea, herbal tea or coffee a festive cocktail as a dessert or snack.

 

Teff is good for us and our changing environment. It is a drought-resistant, heat tolerant, fast-growing grass with tiny seeds that grind into flour with rich earthy tones, a high protein content, iron, essential minerals, and is naturally gluten-free.
