These apple crepes with cinnamon are simply perfect for the holiday season but can be enjoyed all year round. The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and easy to make. They taste best with a homemade caramel sauce.
To make the crepes simply put all dry ingredients into a bowl and stir with a whisk.
Process all wet ingredients (except the oil) in a food processor or blender.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir with a whisk to combine.
Let the batter rest for a few minutes. Heat a little oil in a small/medium-sized non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet, and spread it with the back of a ladle. Cook for about 2-4 minutes or until you can easily lift a side of the crepe (don't try to flip the crepe too early). After you flipped the crepe, cook for a further 1-2 minutes.Note: After a while, the batter will get thicker, so you might need to add more milk. I typically add up to 50 ml in addition once the batter thickens. Continue until you have no batter left.
For the apple filling, simply add all ingredients to a skillet or saucepan and stir (without heat). Then turn on the heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Let simmer for a few minutes over low/medium heat.
Place a few tsp of filling onto each crepe, roll it up and serve with a drizzle of caramel sauce (see recipe below in the notes). Enjoy!
Video Of The Recipe
Oats: You can use regular oats or gluten-free oats. To make oat flour, simply process the oats in a blender or in an electric coffee/spice grinder.
Rice flour: Instead of rice flour, you should be able to use buckwheat flour, quinoa flour, or even all-purpose flour (if not gluten-free). Do not use coconut flour though as it's very absorbent. Almond flour probably won't work either, but I never tried it.
Cornstarch: Arrowroot flour should be fine too.
Banana: You can use 80 g of applesauce instead of banana.
Milk: If you use boxed almond milk, oat milk, or any other dairy-free milk that is low-fat, I would suggest adding 3 tbsp oil to the batter, otherwise, the crepes might stick to the pan.
Use two pans to speed up the cooking process.
Stack the cooked crepes and cover them with a kitchen towel to keep them warm and prevent them from drying out.
