This morning, I invented these lovely Vegan Gluten-free Spiced Chestnut flour Pancakes! That is a mouthful hey? They are super easy to make, very delicious & are very fast eaten at our house! 🙂 I had a bag of chestnut flour hanging around & needed to use it up. They are super filling too! 🙂
Do you know what chestnut flour is?
My chestnut flour is made out of milled peeled roasted chestnuts. It has a mild brown color & has a special taste, a more nutty sweet flavor. Chestnut flour is also very healthy. It is low in calories, is low-fat because it is mostly starch. Chestnut flour has a lot of good fiber in them, about 8 gr/100 gr chestnut flour. It also has a lot of vitamin C. It is also rich in folic, like in green veggies. It also has a lot of good minerals, zinc, calcium, magnesium, manganese & phosphorus. It also has a good amount of potassium: 518 mg / 100 gr. So, it is unbelievably good for you! Prior to this post, I made a vegan chestnut bread. You can read all about it here!
Recipe: For 9 medium pancakes( My pancakes were in diameter:
1 cup (140 gr) roasted chestnut flour
1 cup (250 ml) unsweetened soy milk
1 flax egg ( = 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons warm water, mix & leave for 10 minutes until gel-like)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground garam masala
1 tablespoon dark agave
1. Make your easy batter! Take a medium bowl & add all ingredients. Whisk well together. You don’t want any lumps left!
2. Fry pancakes! Fry your pancakes in hot sunflower oil. Fry your pancake until many bubbles appear on the surface & then, carefully flip pancake over & fry the other side for 1-2 minutes. Stack pancakes onto a big plate & keep warm. Re-oil your pan every time. You will end up about 9 smaller pancakes.
3. Top with good maple syrup or some coconut sugar! Enjoy with a loved one! 🙂 You can really taste the chestnut, hint of garam masala & then the yummy topping! 2 really fill you up! ♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email!
