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.
- Blend arrowroot, eggs, coconut milk, licorice powder and coconut oil.
- Preheat an 8-inch pan over medium heat and lightly brush the pan with a bit of oil between each crepe.
- 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.
- 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.
