The Best Vegan Crepes Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 mins
3/4 cup aquafaba, (the liquid from a can of chickpeas)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp vegan butter
1 cup strawberries, chopped
1 cup blueberries
2 tbsp maple syrup
1Add the aquafaba, salt and sugar to a large mixing bowl. Whisk the mixture using either a handheld or standing mixer, and continue whisking continuously for around 5 minutes in total, until a foamy consistency forms with semi-stiff peaks.
2Add water, and whisk for around 30 seconds more.
3Gradually add flour around 1/4 cup at a time, whisking for 10 seconds, then adding more flour. Continue whisking until the batter is very smooth, with no lumps.
4Lightly grease either a wide non-stick frying pan with vegan butter or olive oil. Pour out around 1/2 cup of the batter per crepe and gently tilt the pan to spread out the batter. Proceed to cook for around 2 minutes. You know that the crepe is ready to flip when the edges are crispy and it's easy to slide a spatula under the crepe.
5Using a flat spatula, flip the crepe quickly and cook for around 30 seconds more on the other side. Now transfer to a warm plate as you make the rest of the batch.
6To make the berry compote, melt the vegan butter in a saucepan and add the strawberries, blueberries and maple syrup. Cook on a low heat for 10 minutes, until thick and jammy.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
