Ingredients

Paleo Crepes:

Paleo Chocolate (Raw Cacao) Almond Butter Spread:

  • 4 tbsp unsweetened and unsalted almond butter (either chunky or smooth), Stir-well
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder (use 1 ¼ tsp for stronger bitter chocolate taste)
  • 6 tbsp full-fat coconut milk from a can (For thinner batter, add ½ to 1 tbsp coconut milk a time until desired consistency)
  • Small pinch of fine sea salt

Instructions

Crepes:

  • Whisk and stir all ingredients under “Paleo Crepes” in a large mixing bowl until there are no lumps. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes. 
  • Heat 1 tsp ghee in a cast iron skillet or non-stick skillet over medium heat. When hot, lower the heat to medium-low, whisk the batter again for an additional 10 seconds.
  • Pour ¼ cup of the batter into the pan. Quickly and gently swirl the pan around so that the batter coats the entire pan evenly. Cook about 1-minute or until the edges start to crisp. Carefully flip and cook the flip side about 30 seconds. Transfer to a cooling rack and repeat with the remaining batter.

Chocolate (raw cacao) almond butter:

  • Combine/stir almond butter, cacao powder, coconut milk, and pinch of fine sea salt until creamy and smoothly. Taste and adjust to your own liking.

Notes

* You may need to add more ghee butter to grease the skillet after the first crepe. Add as little ghee butter as possible (¼ to ½ tsp a time). Too much butter will make the crepe greasy.
* Optional toppings for Paleo folks: fresh fruit or maple syrup.
