The world’s day of LOVE is quickly approaching. Whether you’re happily in love or freely single, there is a big chance you are going to celebrate Valentine’s day in the company of food. And rightfully so! Because food makes everything better and every ”holiday” is celebrated around food. Even if you loathe Valentine’s and don’t celebrate it, it is still a pretty great excuse to eat some sweets and chocolate if you ask me.
Have you thought about what to make already? What’s your bae’s favorite dessert? I bet it’s something chocolaty, chocolate is just so romantic, isn’t it?
BREAKFAST IN BED
Valentine’s day is about spending time with your significant other, your friends and family, or with your favorite TV show. It’s not the time to slave in the kitchen, so dessert needs to be done in minutes, not hours. I think some crepes would be a perfect idea for this years day of love! All it takes is one bowl, some quick whisking, pouring, swirling and flipping. And if you fill them with Nutella, the idea becomes even better. Topped with warm mixed berries…you get the romantic feel, right. That’s the kind of Valentine I want to celebrate!
Other than being absolutely delicious, these crepes are also a nutritious, healthy treat. They are cholesterol free, egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and won’t spike up your blood sugar. Made with plant foods, packed with vitamins and minerals, high in protein and dietary fiber. These Valentine’s crepes for two combine both tasty and healthy. Plus they are very easy to make and require only a few ingredients you already have in your pantry.
And what are crepes without a chocolate spread? They are sad average crepes. That’s why I’m also providing you a bonus recipe for vegan Nutella to spread on these bad boys. Brings back memories of childhood, but in a healthy vegan version and still just as delicious. This chocolate almond spread is my new obsession. I love spreading it on pancakes, crepes, waffles and I have even mixed it into my oatmeal before, and it is BOMB! Must try to say the least. Plus, you can whip it up in a matter of minutes, because nobody got time for that.
I’ve made vegan Nutella before, by blending hazelnuts with cocoa powder and maple syrup but it just didn’t work for me. For some reason, the Nutella turned out hard as a rock and not spreadable at all. So I revamped the recipe and created this super easy almond chocolaty spread, which goes perfectly with these Valentine crepes and mixed berries. Especially if you are a fan of dark chocolate and it’s incredible benefits, you are going to love this one.Print
You are just 3 ingredients away from these fluffy crepes made of oat flour accompanied with a super simple chocolate spread and warm mixed berries.

For oat crepes:
- 250 ml soy milk
- 250 ml oat flour *
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries **
For chocolate almond spread
- Mix all the ingredients with a hand or electric mixer and place the batter in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest
- If the batter gets too thick, just add a splash more milk to it and mix
- Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat and brush it with a little coconut oil if necessary. Start making crepes by pouring a little bit of batter into the pan, swirling it around into a circle shape and cook for 1-2 minutes.
- When it easily lifts off of the pan, flip it and cook it for another minute on the other side.
- Continue the same steps for the rest of the batter.
- While the crepes batter is resting in the fridge, start preparing the spread.
- Combine all the ingredients for the spread and mix them with a fork or hand mixer until spreadable and creamy.
- Spread the vegan Nutella on the crepes, fold them, top them with some warm mixed berries (just heat them up in a pan with a tbsp of maple syrup) or any topping of choice. Enjoy!
* I make mine just by simply grounding oats into a flour.
** Use any topping you wish for these chocolate crepes.
