These chocolate crepes are a perfect postworkout breakfast or brunch. If you’re not keen on using protein powder, just replace use with cocoa powder. Delicious yet healthy start to the day. Free from gluten & dairy.
Crepes are a little weekend treat in our family. I love experimenting with different flavours and combinations but when it comes to chocolate, always count me in!
These crepes are extremely easy to make – just put all the ingredients in a blender, whizz it all up for a few seconds and the batter is ready. I added unsweetened chocolate protein to the batter, which makes these crepes a perfect post-workout breakfast.
When it comes to toppings, I love serving mine with a drizzle of carob syrup, cherries and a dollop of dairy free yoghurt.
