Eggless Crepes with Caramelized Apple and Pear

Standard

Crepes was one of my favorite for almost 9 years, when I was there in U.K, I use to get a pack of crepes filled with chocolate syrup and munch most of the time.

Recently when I had crepes along with ice cream, thought why not to prepare crepes at home. Today was the right day for this preparation, as it was Thursday, so it’s Eggless Crepes. How come a crepe without filling and so here comes my caramelized apple, pear with organic coconut sugar by LYVA.

A perfect after school snacks, my kids loved it to the core. Not only my kids even had I loved it to the core. The Softness of the crepes and apple along with the crunchiness of the pear made the dish heavenly. Let me share the recipe…
