“LOLO LOVES CREPES” INGREDIENTS
2 cups Buckwheat Flour
½ cup Cacao Powder
1 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
3½ cups filtered Water
1 tablespoon Flaxseeds, ground
For the Compote:
1 pound fresh Figs, halved, or ½ pound dried
1 tablespoon fresh Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
2 tablespoons Coconut Sugar
2 tablespoons Cacao Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (or ½ Vanilla Bean, scraped)
For the Chocolate Sauce:
¼ cup Coconut Oil
¼ cup Cacao Powder
1 tablespoon Lucuma Powder
“LOLO LOVES CREPES” ASSEMBLY
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cacao, flaxseeds, salt, and 3½ cups of water. Allow to rest for 30 minutes or overnight.
To make the Compote:
1 | Add the figs, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, cacao, and vanilla to a medium saucepan.
2 | Place over medium heat and cook at a simmer, stirring often, for 30 minutes (or until the figs are broken down and most of the liquid has been absorbed).
3 | Remove from the heat and let cool.
To make the Chocolate Sauce:
1 | Warm the oil over a double boiler until liquefied.
2 | Whisk in the cacao and lucuma, stirring well.
3 | Remove from the heat and set aside.
To make the Crepes:
1 | Warm a bit of coconut oil in a non-stick skillet or crepe pan.
2 | Once melted, tilt the pan to cover the entire diameter of the skillet, immediately pouring in about ¼ cup of the batter. Very quickly, tilt the pan once more to cover the entire surface with batter, returning the skillet to the heat.
3 | Cook the crepe over medium-low heat until the edges begin to bubble and the bottom starts to release.
4 | Remove and continue with the rest of the batter.
1 | Place a crepe on a flat surface and drop ¼ cup of the compote in the center.
2 | Place on a serving plate and drizzle chocolate sauce over the top, serving with the cacao nibs, figs, hazelnuts, and whipped cream.
*Makes 15 crepes (using an 8-inch pan).
