Chef Jessica’s Healthy Crepes with Coconut Oil

Healthy Crepes

I absolutely loved helping my mom make crepes when I was a little girl.  We would make a huge batch on Special occasions and it was always my job to oversee quality control by eating any that weren’t perfect circles.  With spring break around the corner I am planning a similar adventure with my kids.  I always try to plan a few fun kitchen activities when they are on vacation from school.  I’ve altered my mom’s recipe to make these crepes much healthier.  I also like to add a generous amount of Kelapo extra-virgin coconut oil– since I know it helps give us the energy we need to start the day.

This recipe is easy to adapt- you can add cinnamon to the filling, top with a different fruit, or use honey mixed with coconut oil instead of sugar.  I hope you enjoy this fun cooking activity with your family over Spring break too.

 

Healthy Crepes with Coconut Oil

Roll up crepe


 

For Crepes:

½ cup quick oats

½ cup white wheat whole wheat flour

½ tsp kosher salt

1 tsp double acting baking powder

1 TBSP confectioner’s sugar

2 large eggs

1 cup skim milk

2 TBSP Kelapo extra virgin coconut oil

 

For Filling and toppings:

Chef Jessica's daughter, Madeline, loved them!

2 TBSP Kelapo extra virgin coconut oil

2 tsp raw sugar, granulated

2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

1 cup vanilla greek yogurt

 

Pour the oats into the blender and blend until they are finely ground.  Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar; then mix until well blended.  Add the eggs and milk; then blend about a minute until batter is smooth.

Heat a 10” non-stick frying pan over medium heat and brush the surface with the coconut oil.  Pour slightly less than ¼ cup of the batter on the hot pan and tilt the pan to evenly coat the bottom.  Allow to cook until bubbles appear and the crepe begins to appear drier on top.  Gently turn the crepe over and allow it to cook for a few more seconds on the other side.  Remove from pan and spread the top with a thin layer of coconut oil, sprinkle with sugar, then roll up. Repeat with remaining batter then serve the rolled crepes garnished with the strawberries and yogurt. Yield: about 10 crepes.

      Vanessa – We have not tried it with oat flour. If you give it a try let us know how it turns out!
