Buckwheat is a tasty, gluten-free alternative that is high in B vitamins, while in-season fruit is perhaps one of the most precious earthly delights. Sun-ripened, hand-picked, organic fruit is full of naturally occurring sugars. You needn’t add any sweetener to them.

Buckwheat flour crêpes (gluten free)

MAKES 8 TO 10 | TAKES 2 1⁄2 HOURS

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 2 cups cashew milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp salt

DIRECTIONS
Place everything in a bowl and whisk together until just combined. Cover and place in the fridge for two hours. Once the batter has chilled, heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat and brush with vegetable oil. Pour about 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 cup of batter into the pan and tilt to spread the batter out. You can use the back of a soup spoon to spread the batter thinly. Cook for about one minute, or until golden, then flip and cook for about another 30 seconds. Stack crêpes on a plate and keep warm in the oven, preheated to 100°F.Nutritional information per crêpe: Calories 45; Fat 1g; Carbohydrates 10g; Protein 1g.
