GLUTEN FREE STUFFED CREPES
Crepes are one of those things that seem fancy but are super easy! In fact, I find them easier to make than pancakes. These Gluten Free Stuffed Crepes make a classy (but healthy) brunch option everyone will love! I mean, tender vanilla crepes, chocolate cream filling, fresh juicy pomegranates, dark chocolate drizzled on top… what’s not to love 😉
Did you know? Pomegranates contain two powerful nutrients: punicalagins and punicic acid. Punicalagins are extremely potent antioxidants (three times as effective as red wine or green tea); while punicic acid is a form of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). This fatty acid appears to assist fat burning and weight loss in various human trials. (source)
To make these gluten free crepes, you just need gluten-free baking flour, calorie-free sweetener, cartoned egg whites, unsweetened almond milk (any milk will do), buttery spread, and vanilla extract.
If you don’t have gluten-free baking flour, you can use all-purpose flour, brown rice flour, cake flour, cassava flour (Paleo), oat flour (oats blended into flour), sorghum flour, spelt flour, tiger nut flour or whole wheat pastry flour.
To sweeten these crepes, I used my favorite organic stevia-erythritol blend. It’s twice as sweet as sugar (a bag last a lot longer) with no bitter aftertaste. If using baking stevia, granulated erythritol, or granulated sugar, you may need up to twice as much (four teaspoons).
Instead of dairy butter, I used a vegan buttery spread; but you can use unsalted butter or vegetable oil if you prefer.
Filling & topping suggestions
The chocolate cream filling is just dairy free yogurt, calorie-free sweetener, and unsweetened cocoa powder. For the higher protein macros listed below, use nonfat plain Greek yogurt.
Finally, I topped my crepes with some melted dairy-free chocolate chips and fresh pomegranates arils. So yummy!
