The health benefits of TastyTeff are undeniable, but at this point you may be wondering how to use it. Like many gluten free flours, TastyTeff does not do well as a direct substitute for wheat flour, but with the right recipe you can work wonders. These are some guidelines. Cookies and biscuits TastyTeff works wonders for all types of cookies! However, you should use different amounts of TastyTeff flour depending on the flavour and type of cookie. For example, chocolate-chip and nut-butter cookies are thick, chewy, and moist with 50-100% TastyTeff flour. On the other hand, you’re always safe using 25% TastyTeff flour for any cookie recipe, even if you’re not looking for a nutty, chocolatey, or sweet taste from the flour. Pancakes and Waffles: Cooking with anywhere from 25% to 100% TastyTeff flour is great for pancakes! TastyTeff gives a sweet taste with a fluffy and tender texture, and the pancake colour will only significantly darken if you use more than 50% TastyTeff flour. Banana Bread: Baking with 50% TastyTeff flour makes a great tasting banana bread where the nutty flavour of TastyTeff and bananas go great together to form a smooth and delicious treat! Brownies: TastyTeff works great with chocolate, and brownies are a great way to show it! Baking with 100% TastyTeff flour gives a deliciously moist and deep chocolate flavour, as TastyTeff and cocoa powder complement each other well. Cakes: TastyTeff works best chocolate and coffee cakes that are baked with 75-100% TastyTeff flour. For a lighter sponge, layer, or pound cake, substituting 25% of the flour with TastyTeff will make a tender and moist cake. Muffins: Baking with 25% TastyTeff flour produces muffins that have a moist texture with some mild sweetness from the flour itself. If you are baking muffins with nuts or chocolate, we recommend using 50%-100% TastyTeff flour to add a more pronounced taste. Although the muffin will be denser, including nuts, cocoa powder, or chocolate will mask any grittiness from the flour. Using higher levels of TastyTeff will not work with all recipes, however, as it can produce a dense, dry, and grittier result for two main reasons: Higher levels of TastyTeff in certain recipes may form drier and dense results because of the fact that TastyTeff is a gluten-free grain and should be compensated with more liquids, just like you would in any gluten-free baking recipes.
