Crepes.. Good For You Ones

Crepes are such a great meal for the entire family.   The traditional crepe has refined flour, butter, salt, & sugar added to the mix.  I’ve been experimenting w/ crepes for years.  Growing up, my Stepmother made the BEST crepes.  I LOVE her recipe but have wanted to find a healthier version as my daughters and husband have them nearly every morning.

I’ve found the easiest, healthiest, and best tasting recipe.   With only three ingredients  I can make it in a hurry.  The recipe contains MILK, EGGS, & OATMEAL (blended).  Thanks it!  They are super fast, high protein, tasty, and loved by all of us!  The trick is what you put in them… I’m not going to lie, my kids LOVE something sweet in them.   We have detoxed from Nutella and syrups in the house, and are now enjoying fruit and honey on them.

The trick with these is to eat them fresh –  The moment they hit the plate is best!  I love avocado with a little honey on them (my girls think I’m crazy).  You can add things like cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa nibs, stevia, or naked peanut butter to the mix before you blend them to add a little flavor.

For dinner they are a great alternative to flour tortillas.  You can add a little cumin spice or garlic powder to the mix or fill with avocado and roasted veggies or diced chicken w/ curry spices.   Try making your kids a crepe quesadilla.

Crepes – They are something different and so good!

    I have not tried those specific kinds but have used several different gluten free flours. I’m sure they would work. Maybe a mixture of the two? I love to use millet flour in mine but have to still use 1/2 oats as the millet flour changes the texture a bit. Try it and let me know!

    Since I don’t use flour myself, I was thinking of something more the consistency of meal … like these two, which I have hot for breakfast. But as you say, the issue may be texture.

    Will let you know if I try it!

    OMG!!! A replacement for tortillas!!! I love Mexican food and was like, now what…as I love soft tacos, burittos. I am going to try this. Do I need a special pan?

    I use a special crepe pan but thats because we make the every day! You can use a regular pan- the secret is to let the pan warm up on low for at least 5 minutes. Use 1/2 tsp oil to cook it. We like our crepes a little thicker than usual so I pour about 1/2 cup each. If you are going to eat a few of them you can make them very thin and they end up being like 35-45 calories each.
