Healthy Spelt Sweet And Nutty Flavoured Chestnut Pancakes Recipe

These pancakes have a lovely sweet and nutty flavour, thanks to the chestnut flour. You can use half chestnut half spelt, like I do, or half rye flour, half chestnut flour. For gluten-free pancakes, use all chestnut or half chestnut and half gluten-free flour mix. Delicious on their own, or filled with chestnut puree for extra chestnut sweetness. Makes around 12 light French style pancakes/crepes.

Method

  • Put the chestnut flour, salt, eggs, a little milk and the olive oil, coconut oil or melted butter in a bowl. Mix with a hand whisk. Add the remaining milk a little at a time, mixing in between additions.
  • Allow the batter to rest in the fridge for at least an hour, if you can.
  • Cook the crepes in a hot pan, greasing the pan lightly from time to time if necessary. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the centre of the hot pan, quickly till the pan in various directions to spread the batter and cook for about 2 minutes. Carefully flip and cook for another minute on the other side.
  • Pile the crepes on a plate placed over a bowl of boiling water to keep them warm.
  • To serve, put a little sweetened or unsweetened chestnut spread in each crepe and roll.
