Arrowroot Licorice Crepes

Author: Michelle Scott  




These gluten-free pancakes sweetened with licorice powder are a fantastic solution if you want or need to avoid sugar in your diet. Use licorice sparingly as it is up to 50 times sweeter that refined sugar.



1/2 cup arrowroot flour
4 large eggs 
3/4 cup coconut milk (or filtered water)
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil, or olive oil
1 tsp licorice powder



  1. Blend arrowroot, eggs, coconut milk, licorice powder and coconut oil.
  2. Preheat an 8-inch pan over medium heat and lightly brush the pan with a bit of oil between each crepe.
  3. Pour approximately 3 tbsps of  batter in the pan for each crepe(the batter should be quite thin. Add a little water if the coconut milk is a thicker variety). Twirl the batter around to coat the surface evenly releasing the sides of the crepes if they become too dry.
  4. When the entire crepe slides easily in the pan, gently flip it over and brown the other side. When the second side is brown, slide the crepe onto a plate and repeat the process until all crepes are cooked. You can stack your crepes and cover them with a towel to keeps them warm.

Serve with sliced banana, blueberries and coconut yoghurt.


Note: Licorice should not be used during pregnancy.
