Chocolate Crepes with Caramelised Bananas & Raspberry Compote (vegan & gluten free)

I have rediscovered how amazing chocolate and raspberry is as combination – I’m not sure how I forgotten it to be honest but there you go.
And rich dark chocolate with sharp and not too sweet raspberry is pretty special don’t you think?

So these dark chocolate crepes with warm raspberries are a super delicious breakfast (or dessert) – And what could make them even better? Gooey and caramelised bananas so you get the rich squidgy chocolate crepes, slightly tangy raspberries and sweet bananas – so good!

Don’t be deceived I’ve made quite a large portion here – definitely enough for two – three if you’re happy to share.

Swaps – I’ve used buckwheat flour as I love it’s nutty taste and of course its gluten free – but you could use white flour for super fluffy crepes.

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

  4. Flip and cook on the other side for 30 seconds to a minute

  5. Remove from the pan and place on and cover with a clean cloth to keep warm.

  6. Repeat the process with the rest of the batter.

To caramelise the bananas;

  1. Add the coconut oil to a large frying pan, let it melt then add in half the sliced bananas.

  2. Add a slash of maple syrup and allow to caramelise on each side

  3. Set aside in a bowl.

To make the raspberry compote

  1. Add the berries & maple syrup to a saucepan and simmer on a medium heat until the berries just start to melt down a little.


To make the crepes

  2. Fold the crepes around the filling and top with compote, caramelised bananas, yogurt, cacao nibs, and fresh thyme.
