I should be a commercial for chestnut flour. I just love it when I find a new paleo-friendly ingredient! I honestly don’t know why more paleo people don’t cook with chestnut flour. I adore it because it combines the best of three worlds: the nuttiness of other nut flours, the starchiness of more traditional gluten-free flours, and the classic flavor of whole wheat flour. It’s perfect used in conjuction with a bit of coconut flour (for thickening) for those who wish to avoid almond flour.
Last night when I couldn’t sleep, I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make chestnut flour pancakes. Just what everyone thinks about when they can’t sleep, I know. Anyway, this morning I still thought it would be awesome, so I set to work! I just told my mom that it was for school. Which it is, because I’m learning stuff! Like how awesome chestnut flour is!
These pancakes taste nutty and are fluffy, moist, and not eggy at all; perfect with butter and real maple syrup! Whipped cream would be good too, but you didn’t hear it from me. 😉

    I just made these pancakes for breakfast today. First time cooking with chestnut flour. They came out absolutely GREAT!!! Fluffy and soft. Not dense like many other baked goods I’ve done with the other nuts flours. This is a keeper. Good job Heather. I’ll be trying more of your recipes!!!! Thanks :-)

    It would be helpful if you could add grams/ounces to your recipes as well as cups, for those of us that are not in America/Canada, who would like to follow your recipes, as we have no idea what size your cups are. I am going to give these a go and guesstimate the gram/ounce weight and see what happens. :<

      1/4 cup coconut milk = 2 ounces = 56 grams.
      1/4 cup flour = 1.1 ounces = 31 grams.
      3/4 cup flour = 3.3 ounces = 93 grams
      1 teaspoon liquid = 1/6 ounce = 5 grams

      I can’t guarantee that these are totally accurate because the flour conversions are for normal flour, but I think they would be a good place to start. Hope that helps! :)
