Fudgey Teff Brownies

Gluten Free Fudgey Teff Brownies: simple brownie recipe that you will need a tall glass of cold milk to go with each piece. Well, you could have them with a cup of coffee and have them for breakfast too. I won’t judge.

My friend Meg from Sweet Twist of Blogging is about to welcome another adorable little girl to her family! What else should a group of bloggers who have grown a special kinship over the past year do, but host a virtual baby shower for Meg? I hemmed and hawed over what to make for our virtual party. I even thought that maybe I would make something savoury that could be an idea for Meg to make ahead and put in her freezer. Well, I 86’d that idea when my super fun nausea came back to keep me company even though I am into my fifth month of pregnancy. I was thinking of making some mini freezer friendly quiches but the house smelling like egg seemed like a terrible plan.

This is the perfect time for me to post a brownie recipe! It is beyond cruel of me to my husband to make fudgey brownies that aren’t gluten free and I bought some teff a while ago, hence, Teff Brownies. I’ve made a few things with teff so far and it isn’t a bad little flour. I still prefer to bake with regular flour but it is really nice to be able to add teff to my short list of gluten free flours I like working with. My true favourite gluten free flour is buckwheat flour. The flavour and texture are both really nice. It isn’t a one for one replacement with regular all purpose flour but it does work well in things like pancakes, waffles, and crepes.

It is unlikely that you will find teff at a regular grocery store; you will have to head to the health food store for this one.

Congratulations Meg!!

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 cup teff flour


  1. Line a 8"x8" pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Fit a heat proof bowl over a small pot half filled with water, creating a double boiler, and melt the butter and chocolate chips together in the bowl over a gentle simmer. You could also melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave.

  4. When the butter and chocolate have melted, remove the bowl from on top of the pot and stir in the sugar mixture with a wooden spoon.
  5. When that is well mixed, stir in the lightly beaten eggs and vanilla.
  6. Mix the teff flour in well and pour the batter into the pan. Spread the batter in the pan with the wooden spoon.

      My pleasure! Baby meet-ups sound like fun and if we are all there I'm sure Jenny would love to have an armful of babies. It will be nice to have a glass of wine together too :).
