Welcome to a guide on how to realize the perfect recipe for a vegan and healthy version of the famous french crepes. All you need to make these Vegan Classic French Crepes is 6 ingredients and 30 minutes of your time. Recipe for 8 crepes.
A simple recipe with basic ingredients to experience the pleasure of delicious Classic French Crepes, with the benefit of being free from egg (what’s wrong with eggs?) and dairy (what’s wrong with dairy?).
ARE FRENCH CREPES VEGAN?
Traditional French crepes are vegetarian but not vegan as they are made with eggs and cow milk. But the good news is, you DON’T have to use animal products to make traditional French crepes. This Vegan Classic French Crepes recipe is 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
HOW TO MAKE VEGAN CLASSIC FRENCH CREPES FROM SCRATCH?
Step 1: make the vegan crepe batter with the 5 ingredients listed below:
Note the crepe batter is free from oil. The only oil required for this Vegan Classic French Crepes recipe will be so the crepe doesn’t stick to the pan! You might also like this Chocolate Chips Muffins recipe (oil-free | vegan) if you enjoy eating oil-free!
Step 2: Pour some crepe batter in a hot crepe pan and twist it quickly with a circular movement.
Step 3: Cook crepe on each side.
Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have used all the batter.
FILLINGS FOR VEGAN CLASSIC FRENCH CREPES
Melted chocolate, chocolate spread, peanut butter, sugar, jam, fruit syrup… your options are endless on how to stuff your crepes.
All you have to do is place the filling of your choice on one half of the crepe, fold over in half, and fold over one more time into quarters!
My favorite filling is melted dark chocolate, and here is a little pro tip for you if you choose this option:
Add 2 or 3 squares of a chocolate bar while the second half of the crepe is cooking! This way the chocolate will melt while the crepe finishes to cook and you will just have to fold it and eat it! I did a visual demonstration of this process on my Instagram story, so feel free to check out my Instagram @thedorkyfrench for more video demonstrations!
1- Twisting the crepe pan quickly with a circular movement is a very important step for your crepes to be thin and uniform. Fill the middle of the pan with remaining batter if necessary.
2- Make sure the pan is well heated up before you start making crepes.
2- When you eat your crepes, I highly recommend you to start from the biggest end; it’s gonna get really dirty if you start eating from the small end!
I use soy milk for this recipe. You can substitute with any other non-dairy milk, but keep in mind it will slightly affect the final taste and texture.
You can substitute cornstarch with potato starch.
Brown sugar can be replaced with white sugar or coconut sugar.
