I think crepes are fantastic, they have very little ingredients in the base recipe, are extremely versatile as you can experiment with endless fillings and eat them anytime of the day, and most importantly they always look like you made a real effort!

For this recipe I’ve offset the sweetness of the chocolate with the zestyness of the lime but use this recipe as a basic and go wild with endless gluten and dairy free fillings




  • 100g gluten free plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml dairy free milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • dairy free chocolate spread or sauce – I use Chocshot


  1. Mix the flour, xanthan gum, lime zest and sugar together
  2. Add the egg and beat well
  3. Gradually add the milk stirring until a smooth batter is formed
  4. Heat a little olive oil in a shallow pan over a medium heat
  5. Pour in a small amount of the batter, just enough to cover the base of the pan
  6. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side
  7. Remove the crepe from the pan and spread on the dairy free chocolate sauce
  8. Fold into quarters and top with lime juice and a little more chocolate sauce
  9. Serve immediately
