Vegan French Crêpes

These very thin, pancake-like sweet breakfast crêpes get a touch of orange zest to brighten up the batter.

Being speedy and not pouring too much batter into the pan is the key to making proper thin French crêpes. Pair this plant-based variation from this Healthy French Wife blogger with vegan whipped cream and berries for a perfect brunch. 

What you need:

1½ cups soy milk
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 tablespoon cold water
1 tablespoon neutral oil, for frying

What you do:

  1. Into a bowl, add all ingredients and whisk until smooth and lumps have disappeared.
  2. In a flat crêpe pan over medium heat, warm oil. Remove pan from heat, and pour ⅓ cup batter on pan, quickly moving batter around hot pan to spread thinly. 
  3. Place back on heat and let cook for 1 minute per side. Place on a plate and repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately.
