Teff & Almond Breakfast Crumble

There’s more to the whole grains game than brown rice. From quinoa (my fave) to bulgur, amaranth and more, whole grains make a delicious addition to a balanced diet. Teff is a gluten-free ancient grain, but the new kid on the block with health fans – fast gaining a reputation as a ‘superfood’ for it’s ease of use, versatility and nutrient density.

If you haven’t used it before, try it in this delicious breakfast crumble – it’s deliciously nutty in flavour and pairs well with almonds to make a crunchy topping to your morning bowl of goodness.
