"Mangez bien," as the French say. Eat well. And I never feel like I'm eating quite as well as when I'm eating a fancy, delicious, drool-worthy breakfast that was EASY to make. Insert CREPES. Today I'm sharing my quick and delicious recipe devoid of eggs and dairy, but a star contender for the tastiest crepes you've ever had. Topped with any combination of fruits, some special drizzles, and voila! You've got yourself the greatest treat in breakfast history.
2 flax eggs (2 T flax + 6 T water)
2 T melted Earth Balance (or coconut oil)
1 T raw sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t sea salt
1/2 t vanilla
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour*
2 C soy milk
In a blender, mix flax eggs and let gel for about 5 minutes in the refrigerator. Then add melted butter, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Mix a little bit. Add flour and milk and process until very smooth. Add more milk to thin as necessary.
Heat small skillet over medium heat until water sizzles immediately when splashed. Spray lightly with oil, and pour a small circle and quickly rotate pan around to create a thin crepe. If necessary, can use a spatula or crepe batter spreader to thin.
Cook for 1-2 minutes, until bubbles are forming and bottom is lightly golden. Flip gently, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.
Then go crazy with the toppings!! We like everything from almond butter, homemade jam to maple syrup, coconut whipped cream, and chocolate sauce, sprinkled with slivered almonds and cinnamon. And of course, LOADED with fruit. Some of our favorites are bananas, peaches, berries galore, pineapple, and grapes. Have fun!!
