Gluten-free sugar-free teff pancakes

These gluten-free pancakes are naturally very sweet thanks to the bananas and carob flour.

I love to have a variety of grains (and flours) in my diet. Teff is one of my favourite gluten-free flours. Due to its dark colour, it is most suitable for making foods that are meant to be dark.

If carob flour is not available to you, substitute it with cacao powder or just use more teff flour.
