Happines is eating warm roasted chestnut in a grey cold Fall day, don’t you agree? That’s why you must taste this pancakes, its flavor is intense and amazing. If you like Autumn flavors, you will love these pancakes, and their nutty scent.

I must say, that these pancakes, are pancakes, it’s true, but they’re not fluffy, they are like rye bread, intense enough to combine with some good smoked salmon and cream cheese. Perfect brunch or dinner!

This recipe is also perfect for gluten free diets. About chestnut flour, I found it on many bio stores, but if you can’t find it on your local shops, you can always find it online.

Cook this recipe won’t take longer than 10 minutes, mix all the ingredients, cook and enjoy!

My only piece of advice is that you must be aware of quantities, these pancakes will get you fill soon due to chestnut flour, so the quantities are bought for at least 4 people.
