Is that a typo? Pan-crêpes? Nope! This is the delightful hybrid of both a pancake and a crêpe! Packed with 6 grams of protein per serving and tons of great vitamins, but thin enough to make mini fruit burritos if you wanted to.

 

Personally, I've always been a fan of the play on words, but these just also happen to be delicious, too. Top them with strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, or whatever your little heart desires. Personally, I love the chocolate chips and strawberries with a little drizzle of honey on top. Mmm, mmm, mmmmm!

 

How was your guys' Fourth of July? I'm hoping it was cooler than it was here in Tempe. A friend and I made shishkabobs on the grill and nearly melted into a puddle while they were cooking. We brought some drinks out with us to cool off and the ice melted in less than 10 minutes....what fresh 'ish is that! But the shishkabobs tasted delicious, so I'd say it was worth it! Dehydration the next day...not so much. And that is why God made Sunday a day of rest (and Netflix.)

Ingredients:

 

  • 1/4 c. cashew meal (ground cashews)
  • 2 Tbs. flax meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 Tbs. coconut flour
  • 1/4 c. + 1 Tbs. tapioca flour
  • 1 Tbs. melted vegan butter -or- melted coconut oil
  • 1 c. nondairy milk of choice
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tbs. Truvia Baking Blend -or- 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

 

 

Directions:

 

  1. Heat your pan or griddle to medium-low (adjust lower if your pan-crêpes brown too quickly before the middle cooks through).
  2. Combine dry ingredients (cashew meal, flax meal, baking soda, baking powder, coconut flour, tapioca flour, sugar, and cinnamon) in a large bowl, making sure to whisk out any clumps of flour.
  3. Combine wet ingredients (melted vegan butter -or- coconut oil, and room temperature* nondairy milk) in a separate bowl. (*needs to be room temperature so the coconut oil doesn't harden, feel free to warm for a few seconds in the microwave.)
  4. Mix the wet and dry ingredients (except lemon juice) until well combined. When there are no lumps, add the lemon juice and stir to incorporate.
  5. Make sure to oil your pan well before adding the batter in 2 Tbs. portions. The batter may need to be coaxed around so it will spread to 3-4".  Do not water down, or pan-crêpes will not cook all the way through.
  6. Each pan-crêpe needs about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Top with your favorite goodies and enjoy!

If you happen to have a pancake pan like I do, that makes things so much easier. If not, just have fun with it. Practice makes perfect! And if you loved this recipe or know a friend that would be just as tickled by the word "pan-crepe," share it, tweet it, or tag @sharingeverybite on Instagram. I'd love to see how creative you got with the toppings on this one...especially if you made adorable little pan-crepe burritos.

 

Best wishes,
