In case you haven鈥檛 heard of it, teff flour is a whole grain flour that Ethiopians have been using in their kitchens for ages. It鈥檚 the smallest grain in the world, and is an incredible source of fiber, protein and calcium. Teff flour has a light flavor that adds a subtle twist to a baked good or dinner dish, and (yay!) it is naturally gluten-free. Switch things up in your kitchen and test out these 10 gluten-free recipes that all call for teff flour.

1. Fudgey Teff Brownies: Since teff flour is such a powerhouse ingredient, these gooey brownies must totally be good for us. (via Strawberries for Supper)

2. Multigrain Rosemary Crackers: If you鈥檙e gluten-free, then you know how hard it can be to find a delicious tasting cracker that fits your dietary needs. Now you can make your own! (via Healthful Pursuit)

3. Pumpkin Loaf: Although this loaf looks almost too pretty to touch, we can鈥檛 wait to get those pumpkin and pistachio flavors acquainted with our tastebuds. (via Beard + Bonnet)

4. Banana Nut Teff Parfait: If it鈥檚 served in a mason jar, food automatically looks cooler and tastes more delicious. We doubt this banana nut concoction needs any help being more delicious, though. (Eating Bird Food)
