when i watched a gf make crêpes for brunch a few months ago, she showed me how simple it was. so when i saw a picture of these cinnamon apple crepes online, i decided to give it try it for our Sunday breakfast. the recipe i found required gluten free and gum free pancake mix or flour, which i didn’t have but i tried the recipe anyway.
