So, I’ve posted 2 recipes for pancakes so far here and here. But a few weeks ago I had a bit of a hankering for a thinner crêpe-style pancake that I could fill with stuff, so I decided to try these out.

They are made with just ONE ingredient. Could anything be easier?
Ok, technically it’s 2 ingredients if you count water, but still.

I always liked crêpes because they are so versatile, and a great vehicle for whatever you choose to fill them with, but as you know I will not touch gluten, so regular crêpes are not an option. I also didn’t want something overly complicated and loaded with carbohydrates, so these are perfect.

They taste a little more “egg-y” than regular crêpes, but they are perfectly yummy once they’re filled with nutritious deliciousnesses. My favorite filling is full-fat, grassfed yogurt (yes, I have been including more dairy these days – but it’s high quality stuff and my body does well on it), some organic apple sauce (apples only), and chopped fresh strawberries. I then sprinkle it with cinnamon and I’m good to go! And a couple of these are more than enough to take me through till lunchtime.

Ingredients
  1. INGREDIENTS (for one crêpe)
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1 Tbsp filtered water

  4. (allow one egg per crêpe, so simply multiply as many times as you want crêpes)

  5. OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS
  6. cinnamon
  7. drop of vanilla essence
Instructions
  1. 1. Place skillet on the stove on medium and add a dollop of grassfed butter. Don't forget that grassfed butter is an excellent source of vitamins A, D and K2, so don't be shy with it
  2. 2. While the butter is melting whisk together the egg and water until it forms a uniform consistency
  3. 3. Once butter is melted and the skillet is hot, carefully pour in the egg mixture and turn the pan to evenly distribute it (it should be a fairly thin layer)
  4. 4. Wait until the bottom begins to brown and carefully turn it over with a spatula
  5. 5. Once the other side is lightly browned, place on a plate and add fillings
  6. 6. If you like them sweet, add fruit, yogurt, and (as a treat) some honey or maple syrup. If you prefer a more savory option, fill it with something like grassfed cheese/prosciutto/spinach - the possibilities are endless!
