Crepe recipe from Martha McKinnon | Simple Nourished Living
½ cup whole wheat flour
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup almond milk
3 large egg whites, lightly beaten
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and nutmeg until well combined. In a small bowl, beat together the milk and eggs. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and whisk until smooth. You can also just mix everything together in a blender if you prefer. Let the mixture stand for at least 1 hour and up to overnight. (Batter should be the consistency of heavy cream – thin it with a little water if it is too thick.)
- When you are ready to make your crepes, spray an 8-inch non-stick skillet with a non-stick cooking spray set over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles in the pan, it’s ready. Give the batter another good stir and pour ¼ cup of the batter into the skillet, tilting the pan to coat the bottom completely. Cook until the top is set and the underside is golden brown, about 1½ minutes.
- With a spatula, loosen the edge of the crepe and carefully flip it over. Cook until the second side is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Remove the crepe to a plate.
- Repeat with the remaining batter, lightly spraying the skillet with non-stick spray before adding more batter to make a total of 8 crepes.
