Buckwheat Chocolate Crepes
1 c. Buckwheat Flour
¼ c. Cacao Powder
1 c. Non-Dairy Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
⅓ c. Water
¼ c. Crunchy Almond Butter
¼ c. Yogurt (Greek or Coconut)
1 tsp Maple Syrup
½ 80g bar Chopped, Doisy & Dam Crunchy Almond Butter Milk Chocolate Bar
2-3 Strawberries, sliced
In a blender, combine all ingredients, except for water. Transfer to a bowl or container, cover and let sit for at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight. Whisk water into the batter after it has rested.
Lightly grease a non-stick skillet, over medium heat. Pour ¼ c. batter into the pan, swirling to lightly coat the entire pan. When the top is set and no longer wet, carefully use a metal spatula (or off-set spatula) to gently lift or roll it onto a plate. Repeat with leftover batter. Crepes can be made in advance.
Combine almond butter, yogurt and maple syrup - spread a thin layer on one side of crepe. Fold in half, and half again into small triangles. Top with chopped chocolate and strawberries.
EASY PEASY! HAPPY PANCAKE DAY
