I was planning on sharing this recipe at the start of next week, but as it turns out, I just couldn’t wait until then.
I’ve had many attempts at making the perfect vegan crepes and pancakes in the past, which more often than not, result in a pile of mushy or very crumbly pancake like creations that don’t exactly resemble a dreamy Sunday morning breakfast. They’re certainly not something picturesque enough to share on the internet either, that’s for sure.
Luckily, these crepes are none of those things. They hold together perfectly, they’re sweet, chocolatey, not too gooey and are super easy to make as well. I have however used regular plain flower for this, so I’m not sure how the recipe would work with substituting a GF flour blend- maybe this is something that I will experiment with.
For the first time ever, my view going into the new year isn’t that I will only be consuming green things and cutting out sweet treats for the next couple of months after all of the Christmas feasting. Yes, I’m not going to sit around munching open sharing sized packets of popcorn and selection boxes, however I definitely don’t want to wave goodbye to all things sweet and chocolatey.
These are the perfect weekend breakfast for a lazy morning lounging around in bed with a cup of coffee. They’re delicious filled with fresh berries, coconut yoghurt or maybe with some jam & peanut butter. You could also save some to take with you for an on the go breakfast pancake wrap during the week.
- 1 cup plain flour
- 2 tbsp agave syrup/honey (if not vegan)
- 1 cup oat milk
- 1 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder
- Pinch salt
- Coconut oil for cooking
- Serving suggestion: fresh berries & extra agave to drizzle
- In a bowl, combine the flour, salt and cacao powder stir to combine.
- Pour in the wet ingredients and whisk everything together to create a smooth batter.
- Heat a little coconut oil in a non-stick pan and wipe away any excess with some kitchen towel. Bring the heat to medium-high.
- Use a ladle to pour a good amount of the batter into the pan and spread this around to form a thin, even layer. Allow this to cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface, then carefully flip and cook on the other side.
- Repeat this for the remaining mixture, then allow the crepes to rest for 5 minutes.
- Fold into quarters and serve with fresh berries.
