Raspberry & Chocolate Crepes

There's absolutely no reason for you to buy pancakes tomorrow. It's so simple to make them at home, they'll taste better and all my recipes are full of good stuff :)

These Raspberry & Chocolate Crepes are so good, you'd never think they were grain, dairy & refined sugar free. They're a treat.. but that's what GLBTK is all about.... Eating well and developing a healthy relationship with food. Once you view food as something that can support your health & goals, you can really change everything.. It's never about restriction or depriving yourself..

Now... back to crepes & ice cream...

For the ice-cream:
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • 75g frozen raspberries 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Using a stick blender, or food processor, blend ingredients together to give you instant ice-cream.

For the crepes:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp milled flax seed
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds 
  • 1 tsp GF baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs

Whisk all the ingredients well until light and fluffy. Set aside for at least five minutes (This gives the batter a chance to thicken up).

Pour a thin layer of batter onto a hot pan (with a little coconut oil). Flip when bubbles start to appear on the surface.

For the chocolate sauce:  

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Melt all the ingredients together over a low heat until you have a rich glossy sauce. (If microwaving, use 10 second bursts, stirring in between to prevent burning). 

Serve the crepes with ice cream & chocolate sauce...
