Paleo crepes

So today I decided to try a crepe experiment. I used a pancake recipe from Mark's daily apple and inspiration from Everyday Paleo. Here is my version of a sweet crepe batter. My tips for cooking are ensure that you have a hot non stick pan to cook them in and don't be afraid of heavily greasing the pan (a spray bottle of your favorite oil may be helpful). Top these crepes with whatever your heart desires. Fresh fruit, dark chocolate chips, maple sugar and cinnamon, cooked fruit (like pan fried apples, or cooked juicy berries).

Paleo crepe (sweet)

6 eggs
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut milk (I used the full far kind)
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon (depending on your taste)
Pinch of nutmeg

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Heat a pan or griddle over medium heat. Once full warmed, grease the pan and add small amounts of batter. Cook until crepe lifts slightly from the pan and flip. Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove, serve and enjoy!

For savory crepes, omit the maple syrup or honey, and the cinnamon and nutmeg. Season with some salt and pepper. If you know what you are going to fill them with you can add some complimentary seasoning. For example, if you are doing ham try some garlic powder in the batter. For poultry, add a dash of poultry seasoning. If you decide to try these as tortillas (and it's worth a try) then feel free to add a sprinkle of cumin and chili powder. As you can see, the sky is the limit. If you come up with any fabulous combinations, please share them in the comments section here. :)
