teff pancakes with strawberries & mint

These pancakes are one of my favorite ways to make use of the abundance of fresh strawberries in summer.

Since these pancakes from my book "With a Pinch of Yoga" themselves aren’t sweet, it's best to add lots of ripe, juicy, sweet strawberries on top. If strawberries aren’t in season, use ripe pears, peaches or hey - go crazy and drizzle them with some homemade date syrup. 

2 tbs chia seeds
⅓ cup water

Put chia seeds together with the water in a bowl and let sit for ten minutes. 

1 cup teff flour
the soaked chia seeds
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla
¼ or less salt
1 ½ cup water
1 tbs coconut oil
lots of strawberries (at least ten large ones)
fresh mint

Combine the flour, soaked chia seeds, baking powder, vanilla and salt in a bowl. Mix in the water until smooth. 

Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter into the pan, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides. 

Top with plenty of strawberries and some fresh mint.

Irina emits a healing energy that just feels good to be with. Each time we've met, I've relaxed into her presence, openness, authenticity and ability to offer support. She has helped me gain the perspective I needed to be more compassionate and gentle with myself. If you're ready to do the hard work of personal growth, I'd highly recommend partnering with Irina.
