Almond Crepes with Warm Berries (vegan & gluten free)

There’s something special about pancakes and crepes don’t you think? Maybe because they take a little bit more effort and you never quite know if there’re going to come out right – will they stick, burn, be fluffy?? And of course you can follow the exact same method and they turn out differently (or is that just me). Really having a good quality non stick pan is probably my top tip.

I have som sweet almond crepes for you today, my favourite buckwheat flour mixed with almond milk, almond butter and a splash of almond essense for gorgeously almondy  crepes. I filled them with more almond butter, cool and creamy coconut yogurt and warm and gooey berries and fresh mint.
Such a delicious combination! Enjoy xx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

    Looks absolutely beautiful! Can you substitute the almond butter for canned pumpkin?

    Hi,
    Just wondering how well these would freeze. I would like to make them up for Christmas and with all the prep and number of people to serve at once, it would be nice to make ahead and freeze.

      Hi Kelly
      I haven’t tried but I don’t think so. Its would be better to make the batter ahead of time and make them fresh so that they are warm and fluffy.
      Love
