Healthy Sinfully Delicious Breakfast/Dessert: Coconut Flour Mixed Berry Crepe

Paleo, Vegan, Nut-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten/Grain-Free

So last time I had guests over and wanted to make something DELICIOUS and healthy(I just had to show them you could eat well while still eating WELL). I whipped up coconut flour crepes. I adapted the recipe I used to use before quitting the grains and they turned out great πŸ™‚

Crepe Recipe

makes about 10 crepes – Enough for you and your guests!

2/3 cup milk (whatever you normally drink instead – I recommend Almond Milk)
4 Eggs – you can also use flax eggs here
4 Tbs Coconut Flour
4 Tbs melted butter or coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
If you have to have it a little squeeze of honey or pure maple syrup but you wont need it πŸ™‚

Instructions

Combine ingredients adding the milk last (If the milk is really cold it will solidify your coconut oil if you don’t mix it in first).

Heat your pan on about medium, melting a bit of butter or coconut oil. Pour in a ladle-full of batter and swirl the pan to get a thin layer of batter. Your crepe should be 6-8 inches in diameter.

Fry for 1-2 min (or until golden). Similar to a pancake it will bubble and the edges should be cooked a bit before flipping. Once flipped cook for another 1-2 min or until it is done to your liking. Keep adding oil as needed.

Crepe Filling

I pretty much make this up on the spot every time so feel free to experiment… but this mix always turns out great incase your not feeling adventurous.

6 cups frozen mixed berries (or 5 cups fresh)
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
A splash of amaretto or almond extract

put all the ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer while you cook the crepes (you can also throw in some dark chocolate bits to melt with the berries if you want to be indulgent)

Assembly

Feel free to get creative here! Some of my favorite mixes are:
– Greek yogurt with honey spread on the bottom toped with berries and wrapped up.
– bananas mashed with coconut cream topped with berries and wrapped.
– A little Coffee Liquor added at the end of cooking the berries.
– Just the berries with some strong maple syrup drizzled on top
– Lemon Curd with berries wrapped up.

yes they get less healthy as we go down the list…but sometimes thats what I need…I think o.0

These are great with out whipping cream but if I just have to have some I make fresh whipping cream with the electric mixer and sweeten with honey or maple syrup.

 

Done anything yummy with this recipe lately? Have any suggestions?! Be sure to comment πŸ™‚
