Healthy Vegan Protein Crepes

Crepes 29

 

Get flipping! Hands up who wants healthy vegan crepes! These crepes are soft in the middle and crispy at the edges. Mmm! Such yummy joy! I remember when I was little thinking that crepes Suzette was the epitome of sophistication and so difficult to make, but these crepes couldn’t be easier, needing only a handful of ingredients and they are healthy and delicious to boot!

The hardest thing about these crepes is deciding what filling and topping to have with them! Mine depends on my mood, sometimes I only want simple lemon and coconut sugar or stevia, sometimes orange and cinnamon. When I want to make them a bit more special, I opt for yoghurt, banana, chocolate sauce, fresh fruit and berries.

Having crepes for breakfast is such a sociable event for me. I love seeing who can toss the crepe without dropping it and who makes the most stuffed or most creative crepe. How about a lazy morning of crepes, a café tier of coffee or mugs of green tea and freshly squeezed orange juice?! Bliss!

To boost the nutritional profile, I have included plant-based protein powder into the batter mixture (although if you have run out you could substitute for more flour or oat flour or ground flaxseed) and also chia or hemp seeds in the batter mix.

Makes: 8 crepes

Cooking time:  Approx. 3 mins per pancake

Ingredients:

  • 90g plain flour (gluten free if required; coconut flour also works)
  • 40g protein powder (pea or soya bean) or more flour or ground flaxseed
  • 500ml plant milk
  • ½ tbsp. maple syrup or coconut sugar or 1/4 tsp. stevia
  • 1 ½ tbsp. hemp seeds or chia seeds
  • ½ tbsp. coconut oil to cook

 

Filling and topping ideas:

  • Lemon and coconut sugar
  • Orange and cinnamon
  • Yoghurt with fresh berries, figs, dried goldenberries, hemp seeds, kiwi fruit,

 

Method:

  • In a large bowl add the flour and protein powder and mix to combine. Make a well in the centre and add the plant milk. Using a whisk, combine the milk with the dry ingredients to form a smooth batter.
  • Whisk in the sweetener of choice and hemp seeds or chia seeds. Add a little more milk if the consistency is too thick (it should coat the back of a spoon).
  • Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and melt a little coconut oil. Add enough batter to coat 2/3 of the pan thinly. Then take the pan briefly off the hob and tilt it round so that the crepe forms a uniform thin layer. Return to the hob and cook for about 90 seconds before flipping onto the other side to cook for the same amount of time.
  • Stack up the crepes so that they do not dry out.
  • Repeat until all the batter is used up then fill and top as desired. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I tried this with coconut flour and it was a disaster, I needed lots more milk and the mixture didn’t combine in the pan, did I need to do something different with coconut flour?
