  1. Start by making a flax egg. Add ground flax seeds to a small bowl and add warm water. Mix well.(1 minute)
  2. Place all of the ingredients, including the flax egg, into a large bowl and whisk until until no lumps are visible.(2 minutes)
  3. Put the heat on medium. Lightly oil the skillet with a brush, take a ladle's worth of mixture, and pour it in the center of the skillet. Lift the skillet and gently swirl the mixture to cover it entirely. Cook until the edges are crispy, and the center is still slightly soft. Then flip it and cook for one more minute. Transfer it to a plate. The mixture should make four crepes.(4 minutes)
  4. Spread a tablespoon of chocolate hazelnut cream on half of the crepe and fold it in half. Repeat with all crepes.(2 minutes)
  5. Garnish with fresh strawberries and -optionally - with a little bit of powdered sugar. Enjoy!(2 minutes)

These easy eggless crepes are also great with other fresh fruits, such as raspberries, blueberries, mango, or bananas
