Vegan, Gluten Free Crepes Recipe

Happy Sunday! Wondering why I’m making vegan crepes? Here’s the story…. Last week I vowed to really work on my health (and weight), and decided to eliminate as much processed sugar, meat, and dairy as possible.

Now, while there’s much evidence about the toxicity of sugar (read The Case Against Sugar for more information), I’m not claiming that meat and dairy are bad for your health. It’s just where I’m at in life and it goes hand in hand with the effort to reduce my environmental footprint.

All this to say, I woke up craving crepes! Two years ago, I had to figure out how to make them gluten-free, but now I’m trying to substitute milk and eggs as well? Go figure!

Well, this is 21st century, and I can always count on Pinterest coming to the rescue!

After finding a vegan crepes recipe that didn’t require any weird ingredients, I prepared myself for the battle … I mean … cooking.

After mixing all the ingredients, the batter looked too thick, having the consistency of pancake batter. I decided to play around with the liquids, and voila — it worked!

Would you like to try it for yourself? Here’s the recipe:

Tastes just like the naughty version!
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time2 mins
Course: Breakfast
Keyword: Crepes

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup gluten free flour I used Cassava flour.
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup dairy free milk I used oat milk.
  • 3 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup water Or however much you need to get the right consistency.

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients besides water.
  • Whisk together to remove all lumps.
  • Add water if needed. The batter should be runnier than pancake batter.
  • Lightly cover frying pan with oil and place over medium heat.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and swirl around to coat the pan surface evenly.
  • Cook for about two minutes (until the bottom is light brown) and flip.
  • When both sides are done, transfer to your plate, add your favourite toppings, and enjoy!
