Coconut-Teff Breakfast Flakes Coconut-Teff Breakfast Flakes Tumbling Gluten Free
Breakfast flakes like corn-flakes and bran-flakes -- but more delicate, with a sweet edge and a great crunch? This recipe made my day when I first tossed it together -- accidentally. I was aiming for crackers, but the first batch crumbled. Not wanting to throw them out, I tried a corner: and then I poured the wax-papered sheet into a bowl with blueberries and coconut milk. Mistakes and ingenuity are a celiac best friend -- and the foundation for some serious-celiac-good cereal.

  • Ingredients: 1/4 cup coconut flour
    1/4 cup corn flour (can sub coarse-ground sorghum)
    dash stevia
    2 egg whites
    1/4 cup finely shredded zucchini
    1 tbs. vanilla extract (check gluten free)
    water to adjust consistency
  • Instructions: Add all ingredients to a small mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly. Batter/dough should be tacky, but not dry, and you should be able to spoon it onto your parchment-papered baking sheet and see it spread. If it needs pressing down, it's probably too dry.

    Heat oven to 400F, and line your baking sheet with parchment paper (not wax: flakes stick).

    Spoon batter by the teaspoon onto the paper in silver dollar sized rounds.

    Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until corners begin to pull away from the parchment and the surface has browned thoroughly.

    Turn oven off, and allow to "set" 5-10 minutes.

    Remove, cool, and store in an airtight container.

  • Substitution ideas: Chia eggs may be subbed for actual eggs, but the flakes tend to come out less consistently, and I've had multiple chia batches simply not crisp. For best results, if using chia, leave dough tacky, despite directions to the contrary above.
  • Serving suggestions: Served well with coconut or almond milk, non-dairy yogurt and fruit, or sprinkled over smoothies.
