easy grain free crepes
You won’t believe how simple these are to make, yet have the taste and texture of the real thing! Stuff with just about anything. I did scrambled eggs with Parmesan cheese in one and plain yogurt with blueberry compote in the other (recipe for compote will follow).
- 1 cup fine blanched almond flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- Pinch of salt
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup unsweetened milk of choice
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
- Measuring cups
- Small mixing bowl
- Large non-stick pan
Whisk together the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl.
Whisk in the eggs and milk until thoroughly blended. Unlike crepes made with wheat flour, these need a prolonged mixing.
Put the coconut oil in the nonstick pan and place over medium heat, lightly greasing with the oil and heating well.
Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, pour the batter in the hot pan with a circular motion, then quickly tilt the pan in a circular motion until the batter spreads in a fairly even circle. The idea is for it to spread as thinly as possible without having holes in it (complete perfection is not necessary). Cook until the edges look dry and begin to pull away very slightly from the pan. Carefully lift up an edge with your fingers, slip the spatula under and turn the crepe. It should have just a little light browning on the turned up side.
Cook the other side briefly, about 10 seconds, then transfer to a plate with the spatula. Continue cooking the remaining crepes, keeping them warm under a towel. After the initial greasing, you will not need to grease the pan again. The whole batch should go fairly quickly. Roll them up with something tasty inside and serve warm!
- 1 cup fresh or frozen berries such as blueberries or sliced strawberries
- 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional)
- Small saucepan
- Potato masher
- Measuring cup and spoon
Place the berries in the pan, cover and bring to a boil.
Uncover and mash with a potato masher. Leaving uncovered, add the honey or maple syrup, if using, stir and bring back to bubbling.
Lower the heat and allow to simmer, uncovered, until slightly reduced and thickened, about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
