Simple buckwheat crepes (GF, DF)

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

In advance of pancake Tuesday we thought we would share one of our favourite pancake recipes. It’s dairy free and gluten free but it’s very simple, doesn’t require too many ingredients and is probably closest to a traditional crepe recipe. We’ve left it unsweeteened to give you the flexibility to add the toppings of your choice! Berries, maple syrup and Fresh Lemon Frozen Goodness tend to be popular choices in our house, but you could also try almond butter, dark chocolate spread, coconut, sliced banana – the list is endless! You could also blend in some spinach and convert them to a savoury dinner crepe!

We hope you enjoy!
