½ cup ivory teff flour

½ cup tapiocca flour

1 teaspoon xanthum gum

1 cup quinoa flakes

1 cup desiccated coconut

2/3 cup firmly-packed brown sugar

½ cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons golden syrup

2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon bi-carb soda

  2. Sift flours into a bowl and stir through xanthum gum, quinoa flakes, coconut and sugar.
  3. Place coconut oil, golden syrup and water in a small saucepan.
  4. Stir over low-heat until oil has melted. Remove from heat and add bi-carb soda.
  5. Pour oil mixture into flours and stir to combine.
