Don’t you just love Christmas morning? As parents we get to watch our children’s eyes light up with excitement and anticipation as they stare at the brightly wrapped packages. We get to share the joy of Christ’s birth and what it means for us. There is time for talking, cherish, and bonding. The one thing we really don’t want to do, though, is give up those precious morning moments together to make breakfast! That’s why a crepe is the perfect Christmas morning breakfast, because you can make it ahead of time!

Can Crepes Be Vegan And Easy?
Make-ahead meals have been the cornerstone of our Christmas breakfasts forever! When we have a whole day of cooking ahead of us, the last thing we want is to spend our precious family time making breakfast. The thing is, most make-ahead meals out there are full of gluten and dairy, which means someone in our house would be left out. NOBODY gets left out oat Christmas. So, I tinkered and tasted until I came up with the PERFECT Christmas breakfast. Crepes!!!
What’s a crepe without filling? A weird pancake, maybe? You NEED a filling in crepes. For me, something creamy and sweet is what hits the spot. There’s that tricky problem again, though. Creamy fillings are typically heavy on the dairy and eggs and light on the allergy-friendly ingredients. Fear not! With this recipe you’re not only going to learn how to make vegan crepes. I’m going to show you how to make a light, creamy, pumpkin mousse that is completely free of gluten, dairy, eggs, and soy!!! The best part is that you can make it all a few days ahead of time. All you have to do when you want to serve it is fill and roll the crepes!
Today I’m sharing a recipe for Gluten-Free, Vegan Pumpkin Crepes on Life of a Homeschool Mom.
