Almond Butter and Jam Pancakes

 

These are a twist on the old American classic of PB+J (aka peanut butter and jelly) - except they're AB and Jam. To me jelly is the bright red wobbly dessert you had at every birthday party under the age of 10  with the famous combination of ice cream or custard (yep, definitely something I'm happy to leave for my younger self).

Moving Swiftly on these really are a treat...
