Crepes // Gluten Free, Vegan, Refined Sugar Free

Who doesn’t love crepes?

I know I do, especially on a chilly morning with a cup of coffee, and topped with a generous amount of peanut butter.

Today I’m sharing my all-time favorite gluten free, vegan, refined sugar-free crepe recipe with you all and I am so excited. I’ve been making this recipe for about six months now, and I feel like I’ve finally perfected it. So enough with the chit chatting, let’s get onto the recipe.

First, I wanted to quickly mention my crepe topping/filling of choice; this delicious Wild Friend’s peanut butter. Today I used their coconut chocolate peanut butter which reminds me of nutella, but is only made with agave and natural ingredients. However, they have a multitude of other flavors to choose from, for example, this gingerbread peanut butter, and they also make almond butter and sunflower butter if peanuts aren’t your thing. The company was started in Eugene, Oregon, very close to my home, and their story and outlook on food is one I can stand behind. I would fully recommend checking them out, looking for them in your local grocery store, and supporting their growing business!

In order to add a holiday flavor to these crepes, I opted for a touch of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and extra vanilla extract. I enjoyed the depth of flavor they added. dsc00043dsc00046

I choose to use a mix of two gluten free flours- this one is one of my favorites: Bob’s Red Mill all purpose flour, which acts as a 1:1 substitute for regular flour. Through recipe testing, I have found that varying the flours while cooking with gluten free ingredients makes for a better outcome than using all of one type of flour. But I have tried other flour mixes in this recipe, and all all-purpose mix seems to work just fine, so use whatever you have on hand. I just recommend sticking with the Bob’s Red Mill mix for half of the portion of flour, and you can change the other portion of the flour mixture if you desire. dsc00069

And secondly, I added the Enjoy Life gluten free all purpose flour.dsc00082dsc00099

Here I used rice milk, just because that’s the best milk for all of my allergy needs, but feel free to use any plant milk of choice. dsc00118dsc00129dsc00139dsc00157dsc00166dsc00175dsc00183
