Ingredients

Crêpes:

  • 1 cup all purpose wheat or spelt flour (125 g) or sub gluten-free flour *
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup plant-based milk (160 ml)
  • 1/3 cup sparkling water (80 ml) or more milk
  • 1 flaxseed-egg * optional
  • 1/2 tsp ground vanilla
  • (sugar or agave syrup to taste *) optional
  • coconut oil for frying

Topping:

  • 2-3 tbsp vegan chocolate cream *
  • fresh berries

Instructions

  • To make the flaxseed-egg stir 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds in 3 tbsp hot water. Let soak for approx. 5 minutes until jelly.
  • Mix flour, baking powder and vanilla in a bowl. Then make a well in the middle and add the plant-based milk, water, flax egg and stir. Set aside for 5-10 minutes. (The batter should run easily off a spoon, add a little more water or milk, if it’s too thick.)
  • Heat up a non-stick pan on a medium heat. Brush the pan with a tiny bit of oil to make sure that the crêpes do not stick.
  • Pour 1/2 - 1 laddle full of batter into the pan and smooth it out well to form a big round pancake. Cook for about 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear and the pancake no longer sticks to the pan. Flip to the other side and cook for another minute or so until golden.
  • Fold cooked crêpes. Then spread chocolate cream on top and roll them up.
  • Once ready to serve, drizzle more chocolate cream over your crêpes and enjoy with fresh berries or other fruits and desired toppings.

Notes

  • I usually use regular all purpose white flour or light spelt flour but you can sub a gluten-free flour mixture.
  • As egg substitute you can use 1 flaxseed-egg or 1 chia-egg or 1/2 mashed banana (approx. 60 g) or 1,5 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 3 tbsp water.
  • You do not need to add any oil or sugar in the batter because the chocolate cream filling is usually sweet enough and also contains oil. But feel free to sweeten it.
  • You can use a store-bought vegan chocolate cream or make your own with this recipe "easy vegan chocolate spread".
