Crepes!

Yes, I realize that I am constantly contradicting myself by claiming how I hate breakfast things and then always making them.

I think I subconsciously tell myself I hate breakfast things because I really know how good they are and I don’t want to make them every day. Yup, that must be it.

Anyway…it’s a rainy day here and there will be absolutely no outside work or exercise done today so I figured why not make the biggest mess possible inside? Good idea, right?

We made some GF pancakes late last night that actually reminded me more of crepes than pancakes. I figured we might as well have the real thing for breakfast.

Very simple recipe that doesn’t have to be gluten free if you don’t want. Any all purpose baking flour will do! The only gripe I have with crepes is that I usually end up eating them as they cool while I’m waiting for the next one to cook…ha.

Ingredients:

1 c all purpose flour, I used Bobs Red Mill gluten free
1/4 t baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 c almond milk (unsweetened plain)
1/2 c + 2 T water
3 T full fat coconut milk

Sift flour, baking soda & salt together.
In a small bowl whisk together remaining ingredients (milk, water and coconut milk).
Slowly add wet ingredients to your dry ingredients whisking to ensure it doesn’t get clumpy.

Heat a skillet or large non-stick pan over medium heat.
Spray or rub with coconut oil or any other cooking oil.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter into your pan and immediately swirl the pan around to spread out the batter. The batter will be very thin so don’t hesitate to do that step.
Let cook for 1 minute and you should start to see tiny bubbles appear.
Flip either with your fingers by gently lifting up one side of the crepe or use a spatula (I use my fingers).
Let cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute on the other side. Don’t walk away from the pan, they burn quickly!

Let cool on a wax paper covered plate.
If you’re going to let them stack up on the plate before eating, I recommend putting a sheet of wax paper between each later to prevent sticking.

Top with maple syrup, fruit, lemon zest, shredded coconut, etc…

Enjoy!
