Necci with Chestnut Flour & nutella

30 min

Originating from Tuscany, Necci are thin crispy pancakes made with chestnut flour and this recipe sees them filled with nutella.


  • 150g chestnut flour
  • 0.2 litres milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Chopped hazelnuts to taste
  • 150g nutella®


Mix the chestnut flour with the egg, gradually add the milk and then the oil to make a smooth batter. Leave it to rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
Evenly distribute a ladle of batter in a non-stick pan and cook the necci for a few minutes on both sides (the same as for crepes).
Once they are cool, spread approx. 20g of nutella® on each crepe (neccio) and then cut into 4 cm strips. Roll up the strips. Serve 3 necci on a small plate and decorate with chopped hazelnuts.
