IMG_4422As a part of my health kick I’ve given a go on the whole minimising gluten and dairy thing a go, trying to accomplish healthier eating without having to compromise sweet foods. First on my list were crepes, one of many weaknesses but it about time I made them less-bad, switching up maple syrup for agave nectar and avoiding the dairy with some unsweetened almond milk. Here’s how they went…

Amelia’s Special Gluten & Wheat Free Crepes, Makes 10:

You’ll need…2 Cups Gluten Free flour, 1 TSP Vanilla Extract, 1 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk, 5 Tablespoons Olive Oil, 1 TSP Baking Powder, 4 Eggs, 1 TSP Coconut Oil.

IMG_4349 IMG_4353 IMG_4358 IMG_4364 IMG_4376 IMG_4380To start with add the flour and baking powder into a bowl, then add in four eggs and beat in. Next add in the olive oil, vanilla extract and mix well until there’s a light and thin consistency. Use Coconut oil to grease a pan and add the batter onto to pan to cook for about 4 minutes before flipping over. As opposed to pancakes these have a thicker consistency and actually end up making me feel fuller quicker!

I like to finish mine off with something sweet like a sprinkling of Agave Nectar and some cut up fruit like strawberries, raspberries and blackberries and if you’re really in a sweet mood there’s always a sprinkling of sugar too. Mmm-mmm.

    Those look delicious (and your pictures are amazing)! Do you know what kind of gluten free flower you used? Was it rice flower (it might say in the ingredients panel)?

    Thanks for sharing! xx Lauren

    If you call something “Dairy Free” it should NOT have eggs in it.

      she said ‘dairy free’ not ‘vegan’.

    • eve23ie .

      Eggs are not classed as dairy, google it and you will see!

      • Ayesha Siddique

        Lol! Would you know around how many cals this would add upto? :)

          If you need to eat a lot of food to get full, then it doesn’t contains enough fiber and protein to get you full. These crepes are mostly carbs, and these are more of a snack, then say a dinner. And snack food is a type of food that you shouldn’t eat too much of.
