Simple Chocolate Crepes

These chocolate crepes are perfect for a breakfast or dessert. Stuffed with yogurt, fresh berries and topped with melted chocolate and powdered sugar. They’re simple and will be a family favorite in no-time!

I’ve made regular crepes and matcha crepes before. I’ve never made chocolate crepes so you bet I had to make it happen. Crepes and pancakes are different. The ingredients that go in are similar – flour, sugar, butter, milk, etc. However, crepes have about twice as much liquid as pancakes. Pancakes also have baking soda or baking powder to help make it fluffy and puff up a bit. Crepes are meant to stay extremely thin, which is why they don’t have baking powder/soda. 

These crepes were prepared the night prior. On mornings I workout, I come home not wanting to spend much time preparing breakfast. I just want food! When I get home, I heated up these crepes, then stuffed them with yogurt and fruit.

I also added in some collagen but it’s totally optional. If you don’t have any at home, no worries at all – just opt out on it! I just like to add collagen to come of my breakfast foods/baked goods to bump up the protein and extra nutritional benefit. 

Anyways, enough talking, more cooking. Recipe to these delicious crepes are below. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
