Ingredients

Dry Ingredients
  • 1 cup oats ground into flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp flax seed ground
  • 1 tsp baking powder
Wet ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup plant based milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • oil for frying
Apple Filling
  • 3 apples peeled, cored and chopped
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp plant based milk
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Caramel Sauce
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter

Instructions

  • To make the crepes simply put all dry ingredients into a bowl and stir with a whisk.
  • Process all wet ingredients (except the oil) in a food processor or blender.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir with a whisk to combine.
  • Let the batter rest for a few minutes. Heat a little oil in a small/medium-sized non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet, and spread it with the back of a ladle. Cook for about 2-4 minutes or until you can easily lift a side of the crepe (don't try to flip the crepe too early). After you flipped the crepe, cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
  • Note: After a while, the batter will get thicker, so you might need to add more milk. I typically add up to 50 ml in addition once the batter thickens. Continue until you have no batter left.
  • For the apple filling, simply add all ingredients to a skillet or saucepan and stir (without heat). Then turn on the heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Let simmer for a few minutes over low/medium heat.
  • Place a few tsp of filling onto each crepe, roll it up and serve with a drizzle of caramel sauce (see recipe below in the notes). Enjoy!

Caramel Sauce

  • Add peanut butter to a small bowl.
  • Heat water and sugar in a pan and bring to a boil.
  • Pour the sugar mixture over the nut butter and mix with a whisk
