STUFFED OATMEAL CREPES
Updated: Aug 27, 2020
The main reason I switched to oatmeal flour for making crepes is its nutrients and protein content. I would love to feed my body with the best nutrition and avoid empty carbs as a whole. Just ½ cup of oatmeal flour has about 14 g of protein, sufficient amount of fiber and even omega-3 fatty acids; it is also contains essential minerals as phosphorus, manganese, selenium and magnesium. Moreover, oatmeal flour is naturally gluten-free and is safe to consume by people with gluten intolerance. The taste of crepes is so good even kids won’t notice the difference.
1 Cup Oat flour 2 Organic pasture-raised eggs 1/2 Cup (8 oz) Non-Dairy Milk (almond, coconut, or just a cup of water) 1 Tsp Cinnamon Powder (optional) 1/4 Tsp Himalayan Pink Salt 1/3 Tsp Stevia (optional to sweeten if made for desert)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mixing until no lumps, or you can blend all ingredient in a food processor. Keep adding liquid if batter is too thick, the consistency should be as "buttermilk".
Preheat a non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. Cook on a dry skillet by adding some batter onto the skillet, spinning it around to spread the batter. In two minutes or so, flip the crepe (using thin spatula or tip of the table knife) to cook the other side. If first crepe does not come off easy, use a paper towel to spread some avocado oil (very thin layer) prior to placing batter to skillet, repeating when needed.
Now, when you have your crepes ready, you can have them as a dessert with home made berry jam, honey or some frozen berries or truly use them for lunch. I love this crepes flavor stuffed with my lunch place, some chicken and greens. Scroll down for the ingredient deliciousness :).
