Equipment Needed 
large bowl large bowl
 whisk whisk
 large skillet large skillet
 food processor food processor

In a large bowl, whisk together buckwheat flour, cacao flour, ground chia/flax seed, and sea salt.


Pour in milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk together until evenly mixed.


Heat a large skillet with a little coconut oil and let the oil heat up.


Reduce heat to low. Pour about 1/4 cup of the chocolate batter into the pan and spread around in a circle, about 7 inches.


Bring the pan back to medium heat and let cook for about 1 minute. Flip onto the other side and cook for about 15 seconds.


Remove from pan and place on a large plate. Repeat for the remaining batter.


While the crepes are cooling, blend avocado and nut free milk or water together at high speed in a large food processor.


Add in remaining ingredients and blend together. The cream should be thick but goopy - resembling soft frosting!


To assemble crepes: spoon chocolate cream frosting into a small plastic bag and snip a corner.


In one crepe, squeeze line of frosting straight and near one edge of the crepe. Roll the short side of the crepe towards the long side, like you're rolling up a rug.


Repeat for the remaining crepes and drizzle with extra melted chocolate!
