USEFUL CREPES TIPS
- Always sift the flour: it can help to reduce the lumps in the mixture and therefore it can be better integrated with the rest of the ingredients.
- Avoiding lumps: pour in the dairy-free milk little by little and beat well to avoid and reduce the formation of lumps.
- Still, getting lumps?: If you follow all the above tips and you still end up with lumps in your crepe mixture, no worries! You can remove them using a blender or hand. No blenders at home? a sieve can do the trick as well. I used it in the past and it works great.
- Chill the mixture: is ideal to refrigerate the crepe batter for at least 30 to 60 minutes before cooking (the more the better).
- Cooking: Preheat the pan or skillet to melt and heat the vegan butter/coconut oil. You can swirl or use a cooking brush to spread the oil evenly.

Vegan crepes recipe
- 300 ml. of Plant-based milk (I used Oat milk).
- 125 gr. of Self raising flour*.
- A Pinch of Salt.
- 1 Tsp. of Sugar (for sweet crepes recipes).
- 1 Tbsp. of Vanilla extract (for sweet crepes recipes).
- 1 Tbsp. of Flavourless vegetable oil.
- Coconut oil or unsalted vegan butter for cooking.
- Sieve the flour in a large mixing bowl.
- Add the salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar (optional) and integrate well.
- Add the oil then, little by little the non-dairy milk, and mix well (if you get any lumps sieve all the mix or use a blender).
- Let the crepe batter rest in the fridge for 30 minutes for better results. The longer the better even you can prepare this in advance the day before (let the batter sit in the fridge overnight).
- Place a nonstick frying pan (special crepe pan or non-stick pan) on the burner/ring. Lightly grease the pan with coconut oil or unsalted vegan butter (around 1 tsp), and swirl the pan to spread the melted vegetable oil/butter. It is recommended to do this step each time you cook a new crepe.
- Pour a thin layer of the crepe batter into the nonstick pan or skillet, swirling the batter to spread it evenly, and carefully flip the crepe when you see that it is cooked. You don't have to be a professional to do this, you can always use a spatula.
- Place the cooked vegan crepes on a plate.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you finish with the crepe mix or you can prepare just a few and leave the crepe mix in the fridge for later.
- If you are making these vegan crepes in advance when they cool down at room temperature cover them with plastic wrap and keep them refrigerated until consumption.
