I wanted to share a wonderful recipe with you today… one of which I’ve made many times in the past but now, being that I’m training for my first ever Bikini Competition, I can’t really eat. BUT, you can for me!
This is the easiest, healthiest, best ever crepe recipe. I’ve fooled many-a-eater with this one. No one knows it’s “healthy.” No one thinks it’s “different.” Everyone loves it.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s not exact science. You mix a few things, adjust as you go. Nothing is set in stone, it’s just guidance. You can measure exactly, if you’d like, or just eye the measurements. You’ll still get great crepes that can be filled with endless possibilities.
Easiest Ever Gluten Free Paleo Crepes
You’d never know they were healthy! Ever.
Makes about 8 crepes
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 1/3 cup gluten free flour blend
- 1-2 tbsp protein powder (OPTIONAL if batter is very thin, I used whey), or more flour
- 1/3 cup water or almond milk
- pinch of salt
- 2 tsp honey
- coconut oil for the pan
In a medium to large bowl, quickly whisk your eggs. Add the remaining ingredients, except coconut oil. Using a fork or whisk, beat the batter until all clumps of flour are gone, honey is dissolved, and the batter is almost completely smooth. Add a little water/almond milk if batter is too thick. Add a little protein powder or flour if batter is VERY thin- BATTER SHOULD BE THIN, though.
On medium to high heat, add a drizzle of coconut oil. Heat the coconut oil for 30-60 seconds and then add 1/4 cup batter to the pan, quickly swirling the batter around to cover the entire bottom surface of pan. Continue to heat until the batter starts to pull away from the sides (about 2-3 minutes). Carefully flip the crepe with a large spatula and continue to cook until this side is done.
NOTE 1: I like mine slightly browned so I let me go for a few minutes on each side but you may turn once solid on one side.
NOTE 2: Once you cook one or two crepes, turn the heat down and add slightly more coconut oil to keep the crepes from burning.
Alrighty! See, simple!
Now you can fill your crepes with anything your heart desires. Sweet, savory, anything.
I filled mine with a delicious apple-nectarine compote I threw together.
There you have it! A perfectly Paleo, wonderfully easy, definitely delicious recipe for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or even fill with some chocolate chips and Greek yogurt of DESSERT!
