Makes Crepes For MOM on Mother’s Day

Here is a healthy and easy recipe for crepes that you can adapt and use with whatever fillings you like.  The crepes can be made ahead and frozen until ready to use.  If you decide to freeze them, place waxed paper between each on for easy thawing.

 Mother’s Day Crepes

2/3 C buckwheat flour            1/3 C whole wheat pastry flour          2 eggs

1 ¼ C almond or soy milk       1 T honey or agave syrup                    ¼  t salt

1-2 T oil – as needed to cook crepes

1.      Combine flours and eggs.  Mix well

2.      Stir in milk, honey, and salt.  Beat with a whisk until smooth.

3.      Drop less than ¼ C of batter at a time onto a hot, oiled skillet or crepe pan.  Tilt and rotate to distribute batter evenly over the bottom, of the pan.

4.      Cook until done on bottom (Lift edge,  if it is lightly flecked with brown, it’s done)

5.      Turn crepe over and cook several seconds on second side.

6.      Repeat with remaining batter, oiling skillet as needed.                                         10531274-french-style-crepes-with-fresh-strawberries-and-caster-sugar

  1. Darlene, I almost didn’t click on this post when it appeared in my email. I thought, “Crepes are delicious. But we don’t need more white flour tempting us.” But this sounds like a healthy treat I will feel good about making with my kids. Also, when I have worked with whole wheat flour, the wh.wh. pastry flour makes a big difference. It has a much lighter taste that regular wh.wh. flour.
    Thanks for the yummy and healthy recipe!
