How to make crepes

In just a few quick steps you’ll be eating some delicious and healthy crepes. This is how I make crepes:

  1. Coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray; place over medium heat.
  2. In a blender, combine oats, egg whites or eggs (I prefer to use whole eggs), vanilla, and cinnamon. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour batter, about ¼ cup at a time, onto hot skillet.
  4. Cook crepes until bubbly on top and dry around edges, about 3 minutes.
  5. Turn and cook on other side approx. 2 minutes.
  6. Place on a plate, top with yogurt or fresh fruit, or a savory topping of your choice, and roll.

What is the difference between a pancake and a crepe?

The main difference between a pancake and a crepe is that a crepe does not contain a rising agent. There’s no baking powder or baking soda in crepes so they don’t puff up the way that pancakes do!

When you are making crepes you’ll notice that they’re lighter and they are not puffy or fluffy the way that pancakes usually are, that’s totally normal.

Are crepes healthier than pancakes?

Crepes are healthier than pancakes usually. It’ll depend on size and ingredients of course but strictly based on calories crepes usually end up being healthier than pancakes.

This easy healthy crepes recipe is healthier than most! They are 21 Day Fix friendly, easy to make for Weight Watchers, and with just 4 ingredients these crepes are perfect for most diet plans.

You may use whole eggs or egg whites for this recipe. Egg whites will result in lighter crepes, but I find them heartier and more filling with whole eggs.

    I love crepes! This is such a great recipe that I’ll use over and over again!

  3. Maybe I missed this, but how many crepes does this make and how many are in a serving? I’m thinking is says there are two servings, but I’m not seeing how many crepes are in a serving.

    1. Hi Cathy! It depends on how big you make them. If you make 4, then 2 is a serving. I usually make 6, so 3 is a serving :)
