 Oat Flour Crepes Recipe

The other day, I was in the mood for crepes, but didn't want to use regular flour because of how unhealthy it is. I knew there had to be some super-healthy way to make crepes... and I found it! By substituting homemade oat flour for most of the flour in the recipe... I managed to cook up some delicious, and incredibly healthy crepes!

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups lowfat milk
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1/8 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tbs. honey, or maple syrup, divided
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. powdered sugar (optional)

Instructions

  • Put oatmeal in blender or food processor & blend until flour-like consistency.
  • Whisk together milk, oat flour, regular flour, egg, egg whites and half the honey in a medium bowl. Allow batter to rest 5 minutes at room temperature. 
  • Heat a 10 inch non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup batter into skillet; quickly tilt and swirl batter to coat bottom of skillet. 
  • When crepe is lightly browned at edges, use a thin spatula to loosen and turn over. Cook turned crepe about 20 seconds or until lightly browned; slide onto plate to cool. 
  • Continue making crepes with remaining batter. To prevent sticking, place a piece of wax paper between each crepe.
  • Puree strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  • Microwave strawberry mixture, until warm if desired. 
  • Spread each crepe with cottage cheese. 
  • Roll crepes into cylinders. Add strawberry topping & powdered sugar (if desired).


That's it! Simple, healthy, and delicious!

Preparation time is approximately 30 min.
