This recipe for dairy-free chocolate crepes was a “sweet” entry in our March Recipe Madness Contest in 2014. It was created and submitted by Victoria Richard using 8 ingredients or less!
Victoria uses oat flour, so these chocolate crepes are also gluten-free! And she opts to keep the batter unsweetened. This adds rich contrast to the sweet filling, and makes the recipe more versatile.
This recipe works for lunch or dinner, too. Simply omit the cocoa powder and then stuff with some veggies and meat.
As is, these dairy-free chocolate crepes make a wonderfully wholesome brunch, dessert, or morning treat.

For egg-free and vegan crepes, see this Lazy Day Crepes Recipe. You can add a little cocoa powder to the batter for a chocolate version.

- In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl. Add the milk beverage, egg, and oil, and whisk until smooth.
- Heat a non stick skillet or crepe pan over low heat, and add a little oil to the pan if you like. Add a third of the mixture into the pan and swirl it around so the pan is covered.
