Carrot Cake Crepe

WP_20150424_008

Crunchy, healthy and sweet are the main characteristics of these Carrot Cake Crepe. Carrots are rich in vitamin A which is good to our skin and eyes. This crepe is filled withwhat a carrot cake usually have: greek yogurt, raisins, coconut shreds and walnuts.  You can substitute any ingredient according to your preferrence and macros. I also added hemp seeds. You can use any type of nut such as pistachios, pecans, walnuts, macadamias, cashews or almonds. Remember to soak you nuts after using themm. This way you assure that your body digests them better. At the last moment decorating this amazing crepe, I had the ideas to make and almond butter sacue. It is simply almond butter mixed with almond milk and heated in the microwave for 20 secs. ONce again, feel free to use other nut butter or instead of this delicious sauce, drizzle molasses or honey. You will feel like you are eating a sper healthy carrot cake. I ate my crepes with a ginger and molassses latte.
