I love crêpe pancakes! They are one of my favourite treats that I can enjoy guilt-free. I love just throwing ingredients together and seeing what happens and this recipe was exactly that, throwing together these ingredients made such a lovely and healthy crêpe for the whole family to enjoy.
In the last 6 months I have stopped drinking/using milk in my diet. I had noticed that after I consumed milk, I felt sick, sluggish and my IBS would kick in. I now use a nut milk alternative, Almond milk in particular. At first I really wasn’t sure that I could keep using Almond Milk in my diet as the taste is very different from milk, but the more I consumed it the more I liked it and now I LOVE it!
If you have never tried Almond milk, here are few of the benefits:
– It provides you with Calcium, Vitamin D & Vitamin E
– High in good Fats & Omega Fatty Acids (This is great for me as I don’t eat a lot of oily fish)
– Full of Antioxidants
– It is a low Carb
– No Cholesterol
– No Saturated Fat
– Great for Weight Management
– Good for Digestion
– and is Lactose Free
These are great benefits and Almond Milk is a great product to have in your cupboard for a cooking and baking ingredient alternative.
So here is my Healthy Dairy Free Crêpe recipe..
(Makes 6-8 crêpes)
100g Self-raising Flour
300ml Almond Milk
2 Large Eggs
1tbsp Organic Coconut Sugar
Lucy Bee Organic Coconut Oil – for cooking
2 Apricots, remove the kernel and sliced
In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients and whisk until you have created a nice smooth batter
In a small or medium frying pan (depending on how big you want the pancakes) add a little coconut oil with a teaspoon over a medium heat
Using a piece of kitchen paper smooth the melted oil around
Using a ladle pour some of the pancake mix into the hot pan enough to cover the base (not too thick)
Cook for a couple of minutes on each side
Once cooked add a little honey on each crêpe and fold into quarters
Serve on a dinner plate with a drizzle of honey, apricots and a handful of almond flakes and granola
Enjoy for breakfast or as a post gym-snack/meal..
