Gluten Free Chocolate Crepes (GFCF)

I made gluten free crepes with chocolate for breakfast this morning using ENJOY LIFE chocolate chips* which are gluten free and casein free. My crepe recipe is an easy, fun way to make sure everyone starts the day with a whole egg and adding the chocolate chips makes it even more of a treat. This is the third time I have posted my crepe recipe, but I have perfected the recipe over the summer and wanted to share it again.

Some kids are sensitive to chocolate, which contains natural chemicals called phenols the body needs to break down. No-phenol is an plant based enzyme which helps to break down the phenols. It also comes in a chewable form. Other kids are sensitive to the sugar in chocolate chips. But my kids do okay with 1 tablespoon of these when they have the protein and nutrients of an egg to balance the sugar.

The original recipe is for individual crepes. If you need to make a bunch, the easiest way is to line up the number of small bowls you need. For instance if you need four crepes, then line up four bowls.

-Crack 1 egg in each bowl.
-Add 1 tablespoon +1 teaspoon gluten free flour into each bowl.
-Add 1 teaspoon water into each.
-Add 1/2 teaspoon agave (or sugar) and a pinch of salt into each bowl.
-Whisk ingredients in each bowl until smooth.
-Heat 8 or 10 inch pan with coconut oil or butter.
-Pour one bowl into hot pan and tilt the bottom of the pan to evenly cover the surface with a thin, even coating.
-Cook the crepe until it is firm (about 1 minute.)
-Turn with a spatula and cook 30 more seconds.
-Put 1 Tablespoon on ENJOY LIFE chocolate chips in a line down the center of the crepe.
-Roll and serve or freeze for up to one month.

Yummy! We made these for breakfast this morning. We added small pieces of banana with the chocolate chips.

Also, these are easy enough that my 11 and 13 year old children can make them for snacks on their own!

Thanks for sharing.
