A quick & simple, dark & delicious quick bead made with teff flour and oats. Naturally gluten-free, vegan and yeast-free, it is perfect for fueling up before your next marathon or any of your epic adventures!



  • 13/4 cups water
  • 1 cup nondairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 11/2 cups rolled oats (old-fashioned or quick-cooking)
  • 1/4 cup whole psyllium husks
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 cup teff flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 11/4 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup oil (e.g., I used avocado)


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the water, milk, vinegar, oats, psyllium, flaxseed meal and molasses until combined. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350F and grease or spray 4 small loaf pans.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the teff flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add the teff mixture and oil to the oats mixture, stirring vigorously until completely combined (batter will be very thick). Divide batter equally between prepared pans, smoothing tops.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 44 minutes and tops of loaves are very puffed. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely in pans (loaves will begin deflating almost immediately, to about the level of each pan top).
  6. Remove from pans, slice and eat!


Flour subs: An equal amount of amaranth flour, quinoa flour, sorghum flour or millet flour can be used in place of the teff flour.

Sweetener subs: An equal amount of maple syrup or honey (if vegan is not necessary) can be used in place of the molasses. If you prefer no sugar, you could add 3 extra tbsp. of milk, or 3 tbsp. of applesauce or pumpkin puree.
