While crepes are traditional french dessert, I will always associate it with my childhood and my mum. She used to make it for my brother and me now and then as a sweet treat. There was nothing better than a lovely smelling house and a whole family waiting at a table with empty plates watching our mum flipping the crepes in the air.
As I got older and began my healthy journey, I eliminated sweet treats like these from my diet. Over the years, I’ve understood that depriving yourself isn’t sustainable either, so I love to enjoy healthy treats occasionally after a long day at uni or hard workout.
My go-to desserts are usually fluffy pancakes or these lovely crepes. You can top it with whatever you fancy: fresh seasonal fruit, jam or marmalade, chocolate or nut spreads, lemon and sugar, maple syrup, or even go for some savoury options.

How to Make Vegan Crepes
A traditional recipe for crepes calls for a few very basic ingredients like white flour, eggs, and milk. The easiest way to make them vegan-style is to swap the milk for some plant-based option and leave the eggs out and adjust the consistency with more liquid.
I wouldn’t recommend using gluten-free flour for this recipe. Eggs and flour act as a “glue” that holds the crepe together. Since we are leaving out the eggs, the gluten in the flour is essential for the right texture and prevents your thin crepes from tearing.
