Buckwheat Crepes with Bourbon Apples and Granola

Makes 10-12 crepes

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk of choice (we used almond)
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or melted unsalted butter
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup water
  • Butter or oil for greasing pan

For the apples:

  • 2 large apples, sliced
  • 3 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp bourbon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp five spice
  • Pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper

To serve:

Mix the buckwheat flour, salt, eggs, milk, and oil/melted butter until thoroughly incorporated. Set aside and allow to rest in the refrigerator for two hours or overnight. When ready to make, thin the batter with the water, using less for thinner crepes or more for thicker crepes.

In a saucepan, simmer apples with honey/maple syrup, water, bourbon, and spices. Reduce until the liquid is to syrup consistency and apples are soft. 

Heat a nonstick pan or crepe pan over medium-high heat, greasing if necessary. Pour the batter and swirl around the pan to evenly coat a thin layer. Cook the crepe for about 1-2 minutes until it lifts from the pan easily. Set aside.

To serve, fold up crepes and top with Greek yogurt and apples. Pour over the reduced apple syrup and dust with powdered sugar. Don't forget the granola!

Super easy and simple to make - you could whip it up for friends and family in just 15 minutes! And did I mention it's healthy? Nothing more goes into this recipe than a couple of egg whites, plain greek yogurt, and a little bit of honey or maple syrup depending on how sweet you want it. Eat it for des...

Chocolate Buckwheat Porridge with Berries & Rose

This buckwheat porridge will satisfy any chocolate craving you may have - the chocolate's balanced by the warming spices of cinnamon and ginger, uplifted by the soothing aromas of lavender, rose, and rosemary, then sweetened naturally with berries and honey. To bring out that chocolate flavor even further, we added a drizzle of one of the world's finest extra-virgin olive oils and a touch of flakey Maldon salt.  We were inspired by the flavors of the Lavender Red Rose cacao bar from our frie...
