Dairy-Free (and Guilt-Free) Dark Chocolate Crêpes

Did I tell you that I really like experimenting and creating new recipes? Well, today I woke up feeling like something sweet and given that I had a few eggs in the fridge to get rid of, I decided to prepare crepes!

But careful, these are not normal crepes! Normal crepes are made with milk, eggs, flour, butter, and in some cases water. These crepes as the title says are “Dairy-Free” and “Guilt-Free”!! In fact, they are lighter than usual crepes and are suitable for those of you that have a dairy allergy or simply don’t consume dairy products.

For the base, I only used 5 ingredients: eggs, flour, non-dairy milk, water and a pinch of salt.

For the dark chocolate spread, I used only 3: dark chocolate, coconut milk and maple syrup (but you can use the sweetener you prefer!)

If you don’t have a dark chocolate bar you can also use cocoa powder and if you wish you can add vanilla extract or any other aroma.

The recipe is very easy, but feel free to ask questions if you have any!

Ingredients

For the base
 4 eggs
 500 ml coconut milk
 200 ml water
 250 g flour

 oil of choice (to grease the pan)
For the Dark Chocolate Sauce
 80 g dark chocolate

 I used the coconut milk but feel free to use the non-dairy milk that you like most, they are all suitable.

If you don't have maple syrup, you can use any other sweetener (honey, agave syrup, dark sugar...)

 

Instructions

Dark Chocolate Sauce
1

Place the dark chocolate squares in a small sauce with some coconut milk and heat up on a medium heat. Slowly add the remaining milk and stir until the chocolate is completely melted.

2

Remove from the heat, add the maple syrup and whisk until smooth.

3

Place the saucepan aside to rest.

4

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour and eggs. Gradually add the milk and the water and lastly the pinch of salt.
Alternatively you can pour all the ingredients in a blender and mix until combined.

5

Grease a non-stick frying pan with coconut oil (or any other oil) and heat on a medium-high heat.

6

Pour a small ladle of batter and twirl the pan in order to cover the pan base completely.

7

Cook for 2-3 minutes until it’s lightly golden, turn it over and cook for a further 1 minute.

8

Spread the chocolate sauce all over on one side, add slices of banana and roll it up.

9

Sprinkle with additional chocolate sauce, add fresh blueberries and mint leaves (if you wish).

As toppings you can use the fruit you prefer (bananas, strawberries, kiwi, blueberries,...) they will all fit perfectly. You can also add peanut butter or jam if you wish! I made mines with:

  • Chocolate & Blueberries
  • Chocolate, Bananas & Blueberries
  • Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Blueberries
