Apple Pie Crepes Recipe | Vg, GF optional

Categories Breakfast, Featured, Recipes, Sweet Treats

My usual ‘let’s take a normal recipe and make it a little healthier’ philosophy appears to have taken a back seat this week. As we approach Christmas I appear to be to trying as much sugar down my throat as possible. Apparently the ‘it’s Christmas’ excuse is 100% legitimate as long as the recipe includes something like orange, cranberry, a warm winter spice or a lot of chocolate. Today we’re going with warm spices, cinnamon apple pie crepes.

Apple pie crepes

I know this sounds a little odd but I love pancakes so much that I will try to turn any recipe into a pancake, seriously you won’t believe it when February comes around and we celebrate pancake week. Thankfully they’re a pretty versatile dish so I have the freedom to do almost anything to them.



I would say the insanely high sugar content means this is more of a dessert recipe so I wouldn’t recommend them for breakfast or anyone who wants to avoid diabetes. But I had these for breakfast, and I have diabetes and I don’t want to be a massive hypocrite. A little treat is good for you every once in a while, and it’s Christmas.

  1. Christmas is a perfectly legit excuse to indulge hehe! These crepes look like the perfect way to splash out and tuck in, they look sooooo tasty! Anything with cinnamon is also a winner in my book – I’ll definitely be trying these out as I’m always looking for vegan alternatives to try!
