Chestnut flour chocolate pancakes

We are surprised it has taken us this long to make a chocolate based pancake.   Having made these a few days ago, we are certain to make it again and potentially serve it as a dessert pancake with a classic Chantilly cream or vanilla ice cream.


What do I need to make it?


  • 1 cup chestnut flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • Zest of an orange
  • 1 tsp orange blossom water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tbsp coco powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp muscavado sugar
  • 50 gms chocolate chips
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter to cook


How many will I make?

Around 6 depending on size

How do I make it?

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl to make a semi thick batter.   Heat a pan with some butter and spoon in a ladle of batter- cook on both sides and enjoy hot on it’s own or with a sprinkling of icing sugar.

  1. Sounds delicious! Love you blog’s name too. When I was diagnosed with Celiac’s I was told that I’d no longer get to enjoy eating and it’s been my goal to prove that wrong!

    • Thanks Laura for your kind comment. We started on a gluten free journey over a year ago as a lifestyle choice. Our aim is to enjoy food and find gluten free alternatives to classic wheat based recipes. We haven’t missed wheat in our diet – there a whole world of healthier alternatives as we are learning on a daily basis. Do let us know of you come across anything interesting.
