Gluten Free Coconut Flour Chocolate & Raspberry Crepes! The perfect weekend morning breakfast!

Makes 2 servings
Dry ingredients:
2tbsp of Better Body Foods coconut flour
1tbsp TruVibe Organics cacao powder
1/4tsp ground flaxseed
1/4tsp baking powder

Wet Ingredients:
5.5oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3 large egg whites – room temperature
1tbsp Better Body Foods agave nectar
1tbsp melted Better Body Foods coconut oil

Filling:
4 large fresh raspberries
1tsp water
1 packet of stevia
33grams fat free Philadelphia cream cheese
50grams Dannon Light & Fit fat free vanilla greek yogurt
Topping: additional raspberries & sugar free chocolate sauce

Crack 3 egg whites into a bowl and allow to reach room temperature. In a separate bowl add the milk with the agave nectar and microwave for 20 seconds. (this will keep the melted coconut oil from hardening when added). Once milk & egg whites are room temperature, add in the egg whites & coconut oil. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and then whisk in the wet ingredients. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes so the coconut flour can soak up some of the liquid and thicken. Batter will still be runnier than pancake batter.

While the batter is resting, make your crème filling! Place the 4 raspberries, packet of stevia and teaspoon of water in a small bowl and microwave for 25 seconds. Next stir in the cream cheese until smooth and then add in the greek yogurt. Set aside.

Cook 1/8 of a cups worth of batter in a small skillet over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, without flipping and then slide out of pan onto a plate. While the next one is cooking, add 1tbsp of filling to crepe and roll up. Repeat with remaining batter/filling. Top with some more fresh raspberries & sugar free chocolate sauce.

Chia seeds can help with weight loss & reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel. They are also great for athletes because the “chia gel” can hydrate the body. There’s evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure. They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!

Maca powder is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. It serves as a boost to your libido & increases endurance. At the same time it balances your hormones and increases fertility. If you find yourself overcome with anxiety, stress, depression or mood swings, maca may help alleviate these symptoms! Maca relieves menstrual issues and menopause. It alleviates cramps, body pain, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, and depression.

Cacao has more antioxidant flavonoids than any food tested so far, including blueberries, red wine, and black and green teas. In fact, it has up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea. The cacao bean is also rich in magnesium, an energy mineral and vital electrolyte. This super-food is also a good source of sulfur. Sulfur is associated with strong nails, shiny hair and a healthy liver and pancreas.
