Recipe Image Not AvailableEver since I found the Almond Flour Crepes recipe, I'd been dreaming of cheese blintzes. And what goes better with cheese than chocolate?

6 oz cream cheese, softened
4 t butter
¼ c cocoa powder
2 T honey
1 recipe Almond Crepes (see below)
Oil for frying
  1. Beat together cream cheese, butter, cocoa, and honey until smooth and fluffy
  2. Divide filling evenly among crepes and roll up
  3. Fry in a small amount of oil until golden brown
Almond Crepes
Scant ½ c almond butter (4 oz)
4 eggs
¾ c water
4 t coconut flour (10 g)
¼ t salt
  1. Blend all ingredients together until well combined
  2. Pour ⅓ c of batter onto 10-in* round griddle brushed with oil and tip pan for evenly coat
  3. Cook over medium heat until set and crepe easily slips from pan (2-3 min)
  4. Slide out onto cooling rack and let rest while starting a second crepe
  5. Return first crepe to the pan and cook second side for 30-60 seconds
  6. Repeat with remaining batter
*Note: You can also make mini-crepes in a 6-in egg pan. Use 2 T batter for each mini crepe. Recipe makes 18.
