2 and 1/4 cups (250g) wholemeal spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup (60ml) pure maple syrup
50g butter, melted

1 punnet blueberries
1 cup (250ml) natural yoghurt (european or greek style)
1 punnet blueberries
1/2 cup (125ml) pure maple syrup

2.Lightly grease a large frying pan with olive oil, and heat over a medium heat. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of batter into the pan, spreading out to 10cm. Sprinkle a few blueberries onto each pancake. Cook for 2 minutes, then turn over and cook a further 2 minutes, until golden brown.

GF option: Many people who have wheat allergies can tolerate spelt, use your discretion. Use gluten-free baking powder.
spelt is a grain similar to wheat, but with some significant and healthy differences. In a lot of grains, the important nutrients are contained in the bran and the germ, components which are removed during processing. Spelt has many nutrients in the inner kernel, which are retained. These nutrients are easily absorbed into the body. It is higher in B vitamins, proteins, fats and fibre than wheat. It also has qualities which are said to stimulate the immune system. It can be used as a substitute for wheat flour in some recipes, though you will find it needs less water than a wheat flour-based dough will.
