Gluten-free Crepes With Coconut Syrup
Making The Syrup
1 can of full-fat coconut milk
2 teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon real coconut extract
Add coconut milk to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and add the cornstarch (arrowroot, if using) and sugar.
Whisk until well combined. Reduce the heat to low and simmer and cook the syrup for 5-7 minutes, whisking occasionally.
Remove the coconut syrup from the heat and add in the coconut extract. Stir to combine.
Allow the syrup to cool before serving.
Making The Filling
2 cups frozen mango chunks, thawed
Place mango chunks into a large measuring cup. Let thaw completely. With a food processor or immersion blender, puree mango chunks until smooth. Set aside.
Making The Crepes
4 eggs, room temperature
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup coconut cream, melted *See Cook’s Notes
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 tablespoon almond flour
What is coconut cream?
To skim the cream off the coconut milk, simply put a can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for a few hours so the thick layer of cream floats to the top and separates from the thin, watery liquid below.
Open can and skim the cream with a spoon or spatula.
In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients in this order: eggs, melted coconut oil, almond milk, coconut cream, vanilla extract, coconut flour, and almond flour.
Using a whisk, electric hand mixer or immersion blender, beat until a smooth batter forms with no lumps. Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the coconut flour to soak the liquid and thicken the batter slightly.
Heat a 8 inch nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon coconut nut oil.
Pour 1/4 cup of the crepe batter onto the pan, then tip and rotate the pan gently to spread the batter as thinly as possible.
Cook 2-3 minutes as you would a traditional crepe, until center is set and dry and easily unsticks from the pan.
Using a spatula slide crepe to a plate and add stuffing on one end of crepe then roll.
Top plated crepes with mango puree, coconut flakes and coconut syrup.
