Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate and Lime Crepes

serves / makes 2
5 prep time
5 mins cooking time

Description

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

Enjoy!

I’m counting down the days until Easter weekend – I’ve off to visit friends in London and I can’t wait. I’ll share with you any cool gluten and dairy free food I come across on my travels.

Gluten and Dairy Free Bagels – French Toast Style

serves / makes 2
5 prep time
5 mins cooking time

Description

I thought this recipe would make an interesting twist on the traditional french toast using bread. I actually used a cinnamon and raisin bagel for added flavour. You could change the topping to anything you fancy or if you wanted to make this a savoury treat use a plain bagel, remove the honey and replace with salt and pepper, top with bacon.

Enjoy!
