The Crepes:This made 14-8” paper thin crepes, 41 calories per crepe1 cup whole wheat flour2 tbsp ground flax1 whole egg1 egg white1) Put it all in the blender or food processer andblend on high until smooth.2) Place crepe batter in the refrigerator untilready to use.3) I use an 8” non stick skillet to make my crepes.Get it hot on med-high heat. 4) You will need to use something to keep the crepesfrom sticking. I melt 1 tbsp of butter in a small bowl and used a basting brushto lightly coat the pan about every 4-5 crepes. A little goes a long way. Youcould use a misto with a neutral oil (grape seed or coconut oil). You couldalso use nonstick spray, but the rule for my kitchen is I never cook with oreat anything that comes from a spray can…5) Add a 1/4 cup of batter to a hot skillet andswirl around the pan to cover as much of the bottom of the skillet as possible.As the edges cook, use a spatula to lift the edges of the crepe. After about 1minute, flip the crepe over and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Transfer toa warm plate and start over until the batter is done. I keep mine on a cookiesheet in a 200 degree oven until I am ready to assemble them.
