Creative crêpes

Crêpes are essentially a very thin pancake that originated from the French region of Brittany, although today they are virtually the national dish of France. The name crêpe comes from the Latin term crispa, meaning “curled”, and because crêpes are so thin that’s exactly what you do, curl them up and fill them with all sorts of things from sweet to savoury.

Although crêpes are traditionally made from wheat flour, eggs, milk and butter there are lots of variations on this, limited only by your imagination. Get experimental with your crêpes by trying our: plant-based buckwheat crêpes with strawberries; pumpkin crêpes; savoury chickpea crêpes; mixed berry protein crêpes; chicken, cheese and chive crêpes; ham and pineapple crêpes; or chocolate crêpes with coconut caramel.
