Peanut butter and cacao crêpes are not only delicious, they are also surprisingly simple to make.  These crêpes are created with basic kitchen staples like rolled oats, eggs, 100% cacao powder, peanut butter and milk.  Typically made with flour, I swapped in rolled oats since they are high in soluble fiber which has been linked to lowering cholesterol and aiding blood sugar control.  The blend of simple ingredients impressively yield the most perfectly thin and delicate restaurant-style crêpes with crisp edges.
To create these crave-worthy crêpes, all you need is a blender, skillet and your wrist warmed up to twirl away. These can make the most perfect breakfast, brunch or dessert for both kids and adults. You can customize this recipe with your favorite toppings like berries, dark chocolate chips, yogurt or different types of seeds.

Servings: About 8 crêpes
Prep Time: 5 minutes 
Cook Time: About 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes 
Author: Huma Naz
Base Ingredients: 
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice( I used low-fat dairy milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. 100% cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts & mini dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs 
  • Oil 
Instructions:
  1. Process all ingredients except oil in a blender until smooth. 
  2. Lightly grease a 8" skillet with oil and heat the skillet on medium-high heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the skillet and twirl the skillet quickly to cover the entire surface. Cook the batter for about 30 seconds or until the bottom is slightly golden brown. Then, flip and cook for about 15 seconds or until slightly golden brown. You may need to coat the pan with oil every time you add batter.
  3. To serve, roll the crêpes, drizzle over melted peanut butter and sprinkle over some nuts.
Recipe Notes:
  • For dairy-free crêpes, you can use dairy free milk options like almond and soy milk.
  • If you have a gluten allergy, selecting certified gluten-free oats would be a better option.
  • You can store extra servings between layers of parchment paper in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
