  1. Tip the flour into a large mixing bowl with the cinnamon. Add the egg and milk, and whisk vigorously until you have a smooth pouring consistency.

  2. Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a little of the oil. When the oil starts to heat, wipe most of it away with kitchen paper. Once the pan is hot, pour a small amount of the batter into the centre of the pan and swirl it to the sides of the pan in a thin layer. Leave to cook, untouched, for about 2 mins. When it is brown underneath, turn over and cook for 1 min more.

  3. Transfer to a warm plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter. Divide the warm pancakes between 2 plates and serve with the nut butter, banana, raspberries and lemon to assemble at the table.

I liked the addition of cinnamon but this isn't a recipe that worked for me. The pancakes didn't hold together and fell into a soggy heap.

Made this, this morning, for hubby and I. Unfortunately both of us were unimpressed.
As another commenter said, skip the pancake and almond butter and just enjoy some fruit and yoghurt :)

I used wholegrain buckwheat flour, which gave the pancakes a lovely nutty flavour that went well with the almond butter.

Delicious. Couldn't get hold of the brown bread flour so just used plain gluten free. Felt like a treat weekend breakfast.

The combination of flavours work really well together. The almond butter is really important and adds depth to the flavours.
Not too sweet, and the raspberries give it that tangy-ness to it.

Very good and filling. But next time I would forget the cinnamon and just make plain crepes.

Gorgeous healthy alternative, I used seeded brown flour which gave the crepes a nice texture. If you can't find almond oils, I suggest using some ground almonds sprinkled onto the crepes.

These were absolutely delicious, and the almond nut butter added a little welcome crunchy texture.

Really enjoyed this breakfast. The pancakes were quick and a turned out very successfully. Beautiful flavour from the cinnamon. Nice and filling too.

I have had healthier food that tasted a LOT better. Skip the pancake and just eat the surrounding fruits. Ours turned out plumper than expected and almond nut butter made it far chewier than is desirable.

These were delicious. I didn't miss putting anything like honey or syrup on these, as the cinnamon and banana gave enough sweetness. I used spelt whole wheat flour as not having any issues with gluten I didn't have gluten free flour in my cupboard. I also used cashew nut butter as I had that in the cupboard. All very yummy.

Hi there, probably starring me in the face, but I cannot find recipe to make almond butter, in the first recipe of cinnamon crepes?

At left hand side of page is a column headed "goes well with . . . " - the nut butter is the first option

Would the recipe still work and would it vastly change the calorie content if I used normal brown bread flour, ie not gluten free?

I cannot find the recipe to Almond Nut butter.

Hi there. We've now added the almond butter recipe to the 'goes well with' panel, but here's the link anyway:
