Buckwheat Crêpe with Raw-tella and Banana

You might wonder – what is Raw-tella? Huh? Well, it does sound like “Nutella”, right? The terribly addictive, but unfortunately not so healthy chocolate-hazelnut spread in a jar? The one I used to love to eat from directly with a spoon?? Well, yes, but Raw-tella is the squeaky clean brother of Nutella, because it’s made with unprocessed and simple Superfood ingredients only!

And then, well, there is the crêpe – one of my favorite inventions of the Frensh cuisine! Nowadays, you can find crêpes all-over the world, but probably the best ones are still made in France. Crêpes are perfect anytime of the day – so why not for breakfast as a healthy version, made with buckwheat?

Buckwheat-Crepe-1

These totally addictive crêpes (yes, you have been warned!) contain following Superfoods:

  • Buckwheat
  • Flaxseeds
  • Bananas
  • Cacao

Ingredients (for 2 crêpes)

  • 8 tbsp freshly grounded buckwheat groats (use a high speed blender – I used the “Nutribullet” to grind them into a fine powder – see image below of the whole groats!)
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed with 4 tbsp water (let sit for about 2 minutes to thicken)
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk (the light one)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of baking powder
  • Raw-tella: 2 tbsp almond or peanut butter, 2 tbsp raw cacao powder, 2 tbsp pure maple syrup, 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil for baking the crêpes
  • 1 banana, cut into thin slices
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut flakes

Buckwheat-groats

Preparation

  • Mix all ingredients for the crêpes together
  • In a pan, heat 1/2 of the coconut oil, add half of the crêpe mix, spread it out in the pan as thin as possible, bake crêpe on both sides
  • Put on a plate, spread half of the raw-tella on one half of the crêpe, cover with half of the banana slices
  • Fold the crêpe over, sprinkle with 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • Repeat for the other crêpe
  • Serve & enjoy! Hope you’ll have a great weekend! 😉

      Thank you so much and so glad you came across my picture on FF – it’s such a nice platform to share recipes, right? Oh yes, nutella is an awesome things and this one is really clean and only made with natural ingredients 😉 Thanks for stopping by!

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Thank you so much Lidia 😉 Yes, this raw-tella has really addiction potential, lol 😉 I have now always a tiny jar in my fridge for random sweet cravings! I just need a little though, it’s very satisfying. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Thank you so much! 😉 So nice you came across the crepes at the fiesta! I love that platform that Angie has created for us! Yes, these are really on the healthier side, they are just a bit thicker than a traditional crepe, as I didn’t have the equipment to spread them out thin and the “dough” is a bit different. But definitely a gilt-free treat! 😉

    I have a yummy recipe for ‘nutella’, too!! come by my bog and check it out….just type ‘nutella’ in the search bar and it will take you right to it!!! :) Your crepes are gorgeous!! :) xo

  2. Marfigs says

    This looks divine! Buckwheat groats made fine is basically buckwheat flour, or am I losing my mind? I am so terrible at anything remotely pancake-shaped, I think I’ll have to delegate the actually making of this tasty recipe to someone capable (and then scarf down the results – for science). 😀

  3. tinywhitecottage says

    Wow. This looks amazing. I know I would overeat and be very happy about it too! I really like the raw-tella recipe, not a huge fan of nutella (that’ll raise some eyebrows for sure) but I know I would enjoy your home made superfood style! Lovely crepes.

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Thank you so much Jess! So glad you liked the recipe! Let me know if you try it and how you liked it! These are a bit thicker as the “real” crêpes, because I didn’t have that crêpe maker device – but still yummy nevertheless! 😉

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Thank you so much Julianna! 😉 Yes, it is indeed only made with natural and clean ingredients! It’s not low calorie though…lol! But totally worth them! 😉 Please let me know if you make it and how you liked it!! hugs, Sylvia

  4. The Novice Gardener says

    Okay, I want some healthy food, including raw ones! But only if Sylvia makes it, no one else! Seriously, these crepes are THE (read: thee) very thing I want for my breakfast. Nothing else! So, to be clear, Sylvia-made and rawtella-crepes, no other will do. :-) Thanks for bringing these to FF, hon! XOXO

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Lol Angie! 😉 Thanks for this sweetest comment!! I would love to make you fresh raw-tella crêpes anytime! How nice would it be to have a FF for real once – imagine, all the mouthwatering foods we could share!! Thanks for hosting FF – such an awesome idea! Love it!!

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Thank you Staci my dear! :-) Oh, I hope they have them! You can make so much with buckwheat groats. Alternatively, they might have the flour, but I find its taste a bit overpowering, I prefer grinding the buckwheat groats. I don’t even know how they are called in Portuguese! :-) Let me know if you find out!

      • stacilys says

        Ugh! Nope, they didn’t have them. I went to my trust computer translator and found out that buckwheat in Portuguese is ‘trigo mourisco’. I knew it was a long shot, but I tried anyways. I’m thinking of still trying them out with oats though.
        =)

        • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

          Hi Staci, oh no, sorry they didn’t have the “trigo mourisco” (and thanks for sharing with me the new word! :-) will remember it) but yes, you can absolutely make this with blended oats! Should work too, the consistency is about the same. hugs & happy weekend!

  5. The Healthy Epicurean says

    I love buckwheat crepes (called galettes in France) and yours look gorgeous. We eat them all the time for breakfast. I’m very interested in your raw-tella too because my son eats tons of nutella (although I do buy an organic version) but your one sounds way healthier. I’ll give it a try!

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Oh wow, thanks for sharing this interesting information! I didn’t know they have this “galettes” in France! The next time I make it there, I will have to look for it! Do they have it all over France or just in specific areas? I am glad you might find the raw-tella recipe useful. Let me know if your son likes it :-)
      Thanks so much for stopping by! hugs, Sylvia

      • The Healthy Epicurean says

        They’re originally from the Brittany region but they’re eaten pretty much all over France. They’re made with buckwheat flour and usually served as a savoury with melted cheese and ham and sometimes an egg…

        • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

          Wow, yum, sounds really delicious! Sometimes I also make something similar like this crêpe (well, it’s really a big thick for a crêpe actually) and add savory ingredients as well, like avocado, tomato and sometimes a bit of scrambled egg or feta cheese. Good alternative for a light dinner 😉 Thanks for the info, it’s really interesting and I hope to try these galettes one day in France!! 😉

    • Sylvia @superfoodista.com says

      Lol! Yes, right?? A clean nutella! Oh wow, on pancakes, that’s a fabulous idea!! If you have the recipe for pancakes or post it some of the next weeks – please let me know!! I always look for healthy pancake ideas! hugs & thanks for stopping by!
