Apple Pie Crepes

Thin, warm crepes filled with a delicious apple filling (that tastes just like apple pie) and topped with a light whipped coconut cream. I’d say that’s a perfect way to begin the day! I personally think crepes are often overshadowed by oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, etc., and I’m not quite sure why. They are super easy to make, only require a few, simple ingredients, and can be filled with a variety of foods, from chocolate to lemon curd, fruits, and even savory ingredients!

I love when a dish is labeled as “breakfast” but in reality it’s a yummy treat suitable for dessert. I’m not saying these apple pie crepes could be a dessert but I’m also not saying they can’t be either. Listen, I’ll eat this “breakfast” dish every morning if you know what I mean!

Ingredients

Cinnamon Whole Wheat Crepes

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup full-fat milk of choice (see notes)
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 cup sprouted whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Apple Filling

  • 5 apples, cored and chopped
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Whipped Cream Topping

  • 1 can coconut milk (see notes)

 

Method

  1. Start with the apple filling by combining all filling ingredients in a medium to large saucepan. Place saucepan on the stove over medium heat and bring to a low simmer. Cook until apples soften, stirring occasionally, about 30-40 minutes.
  2. While apples are cooking, begin making the crepes by adding the eggs, milk, and water to large mixing bowl. Whisk for about 1-2 minutes, or until mixed well and lightly frothy.
  3. Add in flour and cinnamon and whisk again for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Heat a round pan on the stovetop over low heat. Coat the pan with coconut oil then pour about ¼ cup crepe batter into pan. Swirl the pan to evenly disperse the batter then place it back over the heat.

* I recommend using an 8-10” pan

  1. Cook about 2-4 minutes, or until the surface of crepe is set. Flip and cook another 1-3 minutes, until lightly golden brown.

* If you prefer soft crepes, cook 1-2 minutes per side. For a more classic crepe, cook a bit longer or until golden brown on both sides.

  1. Lay cooked crepes on a plate or flat surface until ready to eat.
  2. Spoon solid portion of coconut cream into a mixing bowl. Beat on high speed until smooth and creamy.
  3. Assemble the crepes by evenly filling each with apple pie mix and topping with whipped coconut cream. Enjoy!

 

Notes

  • Use any full-fat milk of choice. Cow, coconut, cashew, or almond milks are all good choices.
  • I recommend placing the can of coconut cream in the fridge the night before you make the recipe. It helps harden the solid portions, which you’ll use for the cream.
