These tasty crumpets started out as an experiment carried out by my son Edvin and I. We were at home on a rainy day and decided to make a recipe together. Not only did they turn out amazing; we had great fun in the process! The crumpets are originally from my first book "Bröd och kakor – baka utan gluten," but this time I tried to bake them without eggs and honey. I also decided to add one of our favourite nuts: walnuts. And you know what, all of us just love them! These crumpets are so easy to make, healthy and absolutely deliciously good. The coarsley chopped walnuts give them mastication and make them taste amazing. You just must try them, because as everything else I make, they really are irresistible – I promise!
