Author Notes

Do you ever find yourself with a fruit bowl full of too many apples so that you end up with those 5-6 of them too ripened and a bit bruised here and there? This is a good way to save them with no added sweeteners and it’s perfect as topping for the easiest porridge ever. —Valentina | The Blue Bride

  2. Mix milk and water in a saucepan, teff flour with coconut sugar and salt in a little bowl.
