Healthier Basic Crepes

Rated as 4.36 out of 5 Stars

"I love this recipe because it is so simple to make. I have made it healthier by substituting whole wheat flour and 1% milk. I like to fill them with non-fat plain Greek yogurt and blueberries warmed in maple syrup. Yum!"

  1. Whisk together flour and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add milk and water, stirring to combine. Mix in salt and beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Tilt pan with a circular motion so batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook crepe until bottom is light brown, about 2 minutes. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook other side. Serve hot with yogurt, maple syrup, and blueberries.

It's a good basic recipe to use, I added a tsp good vanilla, 2 tbsp of cane sugar and some dried lemon zest to add flavor since I don't like syrup. Tastes great with fresh fruit. It really doe...
