These crepes are the equivalent of protein bars but with warm delicious flavor and texture. Top with maple syrup, chopped dates, chocolate chips, or apples and cinnamon.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup cricket flour

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal

  • 2 cups soy milk

  • 1 ½ cups almond milk

  • ½ cup coconut butter, softened

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Mix all-purpose flour, cricket flour, brown sugar, nutritional yeast, and salt together in a large bowl.

  2. Stir water and flaxseed meal together in another bowl. Let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes. Mix in soy milk, almond milk, coconut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Pour over flour mixture; blend with an electric mixer until batter is smooth.

  3. Let batter rest until thickened, at least 1 hour.

  4. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup batter into the skillet; swirl skillet to spread batter out in a thin layer. Cook until the top of the crepe looks dry and the bottom is light brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Run a spatula around the edge to loosen crepe; flip crepe and cook until the other side is light brown, about 1 minute more. Repeat with remaining batter.
