These eggless chocolate oat crepes are a healthier version of the classic crepes. There is no butter, no eggs and they are super delicious – you will love them!
Crepes are great for breakfast or as a dessert and the filling possibilities are endless: fresh fruit, jam, whipped cream, Nutella, Greek yogurt or just drizzled them with honey.
The batter has to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes to allow the gluten to relax. You can make the batter the night before, in this case add the oat in the morning so it doesn’t get soggy.
Use a small, shallow non-stick skillet, the exact same size you’d like for your crepes.
When pouring the batter, use a ladle or a measuring cup to keep the proportions equal and mess-free.
The tricky part is flipping the crepe in your pan. I find it easier to use a spatula to lift up the sides and quickly use my fingertips to flip it.
You can prepare the eggless chocolate oat crepes ahead of time. Wrap them well and keep them in the fridge or in the freezer.
Feel free to substitute the skimmed milk with almond milk or soya milk.

Using a spatula, lift up the edges and quickly use your fingertips to flip it.
Cook the crepe for about 30 seconds, then slide it from the pan onto a plate.
