Chocolate Crêpes (Vegan + Gluten-free)

I have two bags of buckwheat flour in the freezer. It's been over a year now since the last time I used it and kinda failed...

 I paired it with berry nice cream. It reminded me of a dark chocolate raspberry bar. Yum.

The thing with buckwheat flour is that it has a bitter taste. So you have to mix it with other flours and add more sugar than you usually would. 

I added a tablespoon of coconut sugar, rice milk (since it's naturally sweet), and cacao powder to mask the bitterness. 

I also mixed it with two other flours as I learned it's the way to go when making something gluten free.

Yet, it's still a bit bitter on its own. That's why you gotta top it with some nice cream and oh god these are transformed to wholesome deliciousness. 

I tried subbing the almond flour with oat flour but they turned out dry, that's why I suggest sticking with almond flour
