Coconut Crepes with Lime Sugar and Yogurt

And super easy to make!

Coconut Crepes with Lime Sugar

Besides the fact that these are super easy to make and that I really enjoyed them, I’m not so sure if my family was as convinced as me… I mean I have been on a coconut run, trying every sweet with coconut…

If I think better on it they almost roll their eyes and ask ‘Coconut?’.Like. Again?

Coconut Crepes with Lime Sugar

Ok probably my fault… But I’m discovering the wonders of coconut just now (specially coconut oil!), since I was a hater.

Anyway these are great and with greek yogurt and raspberries it’s the perfect weekend breakfast, or weekday, you can do the batter the night before and in the morning you just need a pan! The lime sugar though, you cannot not do it! It’s just impossible to skip it…. Cause when you do the crepes you will have to spread the sugar inside, fold the crepe and it will melt to Uummazingness! So as you can see the sugar is mandatory too…

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until well combined, about 1 minute. Let the batter rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. You can also keep it for about 48 hours in the fridge.
  2. To cook the crepes heat a non stick pan on medium heat. Coat the pan with oil or butter ( I like to use a paper towel so there's no excess). With a ladle pour the batter into the center of the pan and swirl until the base is covered. Once the edges of the crepe start to curl up a bit flip and add your lime sugar and spread it (add as much as you want). After about 10 seconds fold in half, cook for more 10 seconds then flip it and cook for 10 more seconds.
  3. Repeat until you're done with all the batter.
  4. Serve the crepes with a dollop of greek yogurt, some raspberries and, of course, dust everything with the lime sugar!

    Surpreendente ideia a do coco.. Parabéns. PS: devia ser proibido pôr fotografias assim … se não sair da mesma maneira, vou reclamar por publicidade enganosa 🙂

    Welcome back! Being a big fan of pancake and its look alikes, I decided to give this recipe a try right away this morning. It is safe to say, these are the best crepes I have tasted so far! My family certainly agrees. This gave my morning a delightful start. The coating of lime sugar did enrich it with “ummazing” flavor! Obrigado for the recipe! It will have its place in most of my breakfasts. I will try more combinations to go with these crepes soon.

I would love to hear from you!
