Recipe Notes

Teff is a grass native to Ethiopia which provides calcium, protein & fiber. The flavor of teff complements the flavor of chocolate well. You can buy teff already ground into flour (such as from Bob's Red Mill: https://www.bobsredmill.com/teff-flour.html). These brownies have a cak-ey consistency to them.
