Apple Pie Teff Porridge

  • Yield: Serves two 1x


  • 1/2 cup teff
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk beverage
  • 1 small apple, cored and chopped into 1/2 inch-cubes
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (or more to taste for added sweetness)
  • Optional toppings: chopped walnuts and chia seeds


  1. In a medium saucepan, toast teff over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until you hear it start to sizzle and pop.
  2. Transfer teff to a medium pot and add coconut milk and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer, stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Stir in maple syrup and let sit for 3-5 minutes before serving.
  3. In the meantime, add apples, cinnamon and nutmeg to a microwave-safe bowl and cook for two minutes until apples are tender and juices have released.
  4. Top porridge with spiced apples and any other desired toppings (walnuts, chia seeds). Serve immediately, adding more coconut milk as desired.
