  • 2 Large eggs (free range)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup white rice flour (extra-fine)
  • 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/3 cup potato starch
  • 1/2 cup milk (whole)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • butter (for pan)


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Large apple (divided in half. chop half, puree half.)
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon water


Step 1
In a small sauce pan over medium heat add butter and 1/2 a large chopped apple.
Step 2
Add coconut palm sugar, cinnamon and water.
Step 3
Bring apple mixture to a medium boil, stirring occasionally.
Step 4
Place remaining half an apple into a blender and blend on high until applesauce forms. Add a tablespoon of water if needed.
Step 5
Add applesauce to chopped apples in saucepan.
Step 6
Turn burner down to low and continue on a slow simmer while you make the crepe batter.
Step 7
Simmer until apples are completely soft.
Step 8
In a medium size bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs and water.
Step 9
Briskly whisk in rice flour, tapioca and potato starch.
Step 10
Slowly add milk while continuing to stir.
Step 11
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add to crepe mixture. Batter should be extremely thin.
Step 12
Heat a 10"non-stick skillet on high heat. Add a small amount of butter to cover the bottom of the pan.
Step 13
Stir the batter between each crepe to ensure it is fully blended; flour has a tendency to settle. Pour approximately 1/3 cup of batter into heated pan beginning in a circular pattern from the outer edges of the pan to the center. Lift the pan and swirl in all directions creating an even coating.
Step 14
Cook until outer edges begin to crisp and pull away from the pan. Flip over and cook an additional 1 minute on other side.
Step 15
Place cooked crepe onto a warm plate and flip in half. Continue cooking until all crepe batter is used.
Step 16
Open crepe and place a small amount of apple compote down the center. Roll crepe and add a small amount of compote on top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.
