To get started, prep the filling by heating water and blueberries in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until bubbly, remove from the heat and slightly mash with a fork. Transfer the blueberry sauce into a blender with cashews and honey, making sure to scrape down the sides with a spatula. The texture should be smooth and creamy.
Tip: Keep this filling on-hand as a Paleo alternative to frosting or experiment with cacao, raspberries or a touch of vanilla to switch things up.
Next, combine the eggs and almond milk in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth and then gradually add the flour, sea salt, and vanilla. Note: The batter should be slightly thinner than traditional pancake batter. Melt the ghee over medium heat in a skillet and use a ⅓ cup measure to pour the batter into the pan. Quickly swirl the skillet to evenly distribute the batter around the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the edges are slightly crisp. No need to flip them as the crêpes are very thin. Use a spatula to gently lift the crêpe onto a serving plate.
Then, spread a thin layer of filling on top and repeat the stacking process until there is no more batter left. Garnish with extra berries on top and slice to unveil its heavenly layers.
