Gluten Free Protein Crepes

Happy Pancake Day! 

Since today is Shrove Tuesday aka Pancake Day I bring you not one, but two recipes! One for yummy fluffy sweet pancakes and one for yummier savoury crepes(below)! (You can tell I have a savoury tooth!)

10 years ago I was making crepes with my friends at home celebrating my first surgery. That became one of our traditions. It’s time for a new one right now, so let’s roll them pancakes and crepes and celebrate our milestones, daily successes and friends! 

If the fluffy pancakes are a nice Sunday Brunch addition, these silky crepes are an excellent post workout fix. They’re packed with protein and if you have a really good pan, you don’t even need to use much oil. Make a bigger batch and keep in the fridge for a couple of days, or freeze for rainy days! Batch preparation is the solution against all defeat.

2 tbsp coaked chia seeds
1 tsp spirulina* optional
1 tsp chlorella* optional

How to:
 vegan-savoury-crepes-recipe-second-nature1
 
Add all ingredients to the blender and mix for 30 seconds. 

Heat up a (pancake) pan on medium heat and pour 1/2 tsp coconut oil in the pan and use a kitchen roll to coat the 
entire pan. Watch your fingers, it will be hot! 

Take the pan off the heat and pour a ladle full of batter into it and swirl it around the pan so the batter coats the entire surface.

Put the pan back onto the heat, slightly shaking it back and forth constantly, and flip when it moves around freely and bubbles are forming. 
 
Cook for the same amount of time on the other side and slide on a plate and repeat the process with the rest of the batter. 
 
You can cover the cooked crepes with a tea towel or plate to keep them warm.
