    Buster's friend's Note:

    If you haven’t tried chestnut flour as a substitute for wheat flour, this is the perfect recipe for you. Chestnut flour is rich in carbohydrates, low in fat, and its tender texture and sweet nutty flavor is perfect for crepes and pancakes alike. This is Wild Oats recipe, soon to be part of Whole Foods I believe.

      These were lovely. I left out the sweeteners because I wanted to taste what pure chestnut flour is like. The crepes were thin and flexible, and had a subtile and slightly nutty flavor. They browned up fast, so I flipped them as soon as they were almost dry on top.

      Excellent! The only reason I'm not giving any stars is because I used 1/2 almond flour and 1/2 GF flour mix instead of chestnut flour. The texture and taste were terrific! The celiac in the family was thrilled to finally have crepes again!
