Vegan Chocolate + Banana Crepes 🍌🍫 // If you’re craving something sweet for breakfast then these beauties from @elavegan are just the ticket for you! Vegan gluten free crepes with homemade chocolate spread (made from just peanut flour, cacao powder, maple syrup + water)… yes please! Ela has some awesome recipes on her blog http://elavegan.com that are definitely worth checking out. Her tasty recipe is 👇 --------------- INGREDIENTS • 1 scant cup oat flour, gluten free (90 g) • 4 tbsp tapioca flour/starch (28 g) - It’s important to not sub tapioca flour/starch in this recipe, as it makes the crepe more elastic/flexible. • 4 tbsp potato starch or corn starch (28 g) • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds (10 g) • 1 1/2 cups plant milk (I used coconut milk) (360 ml) • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup (30 g) INSTRUCTIONS • Process all ingredients in your food processor or just whisk them together in a bowl • Heat a non-stick pan/skillet (10 inch ceramic skillet) with some oil over medium heat • Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan, swirl the batter around to coat the pan evenly. Cook for about 2-4 minutes or until you can easily lift a side of the crepe (don’t try to flip the crepe too early). After you carefully flipped the crepe, cook for a further 1-2 minutes • After a while the batter will get thicker (because of the ground flax seeds), just add a little bit more plant milk • Fill your crepes with a chocolate spread + your favourite fillings + enjoy! ---------------- Happy Sunday ☺🙏🏻💚
