Chocolate Crepes

We tend to go all-out on breakfast during the weekend.  Pancakes, waffles, crepes… all decked out with toppings like coconut butter, chocolate chips, or nut butter.  A little different from our weekday breakfasts.  (Although I do frequently make my son waffles.)

Sometimes I whip up whatever I want to make, or a recipe I’m interested in trying, but other times I take requests from my boys.  My husband most frequently asks for crepes, while my 3 year old son requests anything chocolate (oh how he takes after his mother 😉 ).

With these two requests, it only seemed natural to cook up some Paleo- friendly Chocolate Crepes for a decadent, but still some-what healthy treat that would satisfy the cravings of both my husband and son.  And since my 3 year old asked for more after his first crepe, I think it’s safe to say that he enjoyed them!

These Chocolate Crepes are Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free and sweetened with coconut sugar.  Even better, they are made with just 6 simple ingredients.

  6. Remove from heat, roll up and repeat until batter is gone.
