Delicious Whole Wheat Crepes
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but how many of us are bored of cold cereal and buttered toast. It’s time to make breakfast more exciting!
Whole Wheat Crepes
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 Cup 2% Milk
- 3/4 Cup Water
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Butter (melted), plus more for cooking
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until well mixed. Let the mixture stand in the refrigerator for 15 minutes (or over night if more convenient).
Melt butter in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Hold the pan at an angle and pour 1/3 cup of batter. Quickly swirl the pan in a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly. Cook for about 1 minute, using a spatula gently peel up the edge and flip, being careful not to tare the crepe. Cook for 1 more minute. Repeat with remaining batter. Best when served immediately!
Crepes go wonderfully with a variety of toppings and fillings so keep breakfast exciting by experimenting with fresh fruit, cream, maple syrup, or even savory dishes like scrambled eggs. The great thing about these crepes is they are made with whole wheat flour, which incorporates fiber and protein into your breakfast.
