Vegan Crepes

  • 1 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Limoneira® orange zest & juice

Suzette Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 3 Limoneira® oranges zest & juice
  • 1 teaspoon Limoneira® lemon juice
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter



  • Turn the oven on to its lowest setting, and prepare a baking sheet – you’ll use it to keep the crepes warm as you make each one.
  • Whisk together the milk and flour, then add the remaining ingredients. Be sure that the batter is thin, with no lumps.
  • Make sure your pan and oil (preferably coconut or other neutral oil) are hot before you add the batter.
  • Add a few tablespoons of batter, rotating the pan to create a thin, flat surface.
  • Reduce heat to a medium setting, and cook for about a minute or two on each side, until just browned.

Suzette Sauce

  • Add the sugar and orange juice to a non-stick pan over a medium-low setting. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the lemon juice, orange zest, and star anise. Continue to stir as it bubbles and begins to thicken.
  • Add the Grand Marnier, and cook for another minute or two as you stir.
  • Add the butter in small chunks, stirring until the sauce takes on a glossy texture.
  • Remove the star anise, pour over the crepes and serve.


Notes: Zest the oranges in long, thin strips for a stylish visual effect. If you dislike the slightly bitter edge, you can boil the peels for about 3 minutes first, draining well, before you add to the sauce.
