Ah, teff. You’re a lifesaver. Without you, I wouldn’t have been able to make teff banana muffins today. I wouldn’t have had healthy uni snacks for the week and had to spend big on campus instead. Not only did you avert an epic kitchen and budget crisis, you also pack a punch with your incredible health benefits. Teff ticks all the boxes – high fibre, high protein, high in micronutrients. It also makes for a great gluten free flour replacement. A one to one flour replacement! Now that is certainly an achievement.
Besides bundling up all the benefits teff has to offer in a delicious single-serve, these one bowl muffins are vegan, gluten free and made with plenty of other better-for-you wholefoods. There’s oats and coconut sugar to lower GI, and bananas for flavour and sweetness.
Why else do these make the perfect student-snack? It’s a small batch recipe! I’m not sure about the rest of you living the student life, but I am allocated a very very measly amount of fridge and freezer space. Whilst I would like to bake my heart away, I simply don’t have anywhere to store my goods!
Enter, the small batch / single lady / student size recipe.
Lots of love, your author with a tight budget and even tighter schedule, Rosie.
