Simple Whole Wheat Crepes Recipe

Simple Whole Wheat Crepes Recipe

These crepes are light and fluffy and made with whole wheat flour! They have a wonderful flavor that goes well with any of your favorite crepe toppings.

They combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and honey for a wonderful flavor.

The honey really makes this dish. When available, go with local honey.

It is the perfect crepe for sweet or savory filling.

I’ve had great luck using a chocolate filling as well as my personal favorite, ricotta and parmesan cheese filling.

It’s a great crepe to experiment with, so have some fun and your family will love it!

How to Make Homemade Wheat Crepes from Scratch

This is a quick and easy crepe recipe. It’s great for those special family breakfasts, or when serving guests.

Prep time is around five minutes and cook time is another ten. You need a crepe pan or skillet and either a blender or mixing bowl and mixer.

And that’s it!

Flipping crepes: The traditional method for flipping your crepes is to run a spatula around the edge of your crepe to loosen it. Then grab your crepe between two finger and then turn it in one quick motion. You can flip your crepes with your spatula, but you will need to be careful as it is easy to break a crepe when using a spatula.

Ingredients

This recipe has a little longer ingredient list than the other styles of crepes you will find on Treat Dreams. But, they come together to create an amazing flavor, with the best texture I’ve had in a wheat crepe.

Ingredient List

  • Whole Wheat Flour
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Milk
  • Honey
  • Salt
  • Your favorite filling and toppings

Vegetable Oil: If you don’t like cooking with vegetable oil, you can use butter or coconut oil instead. Both work well and provide a great flavor. Only go with coconut if using fillings that go well with coconut.

Honey: This adds a wonderful note of sweetness that works incredibly well with wheat. It pairs with most toppings and is my preferred sweetener.

Flour: We combine wheat and all-purpose flour to achieve a light and fluffy texture. Whole wheat flour alone tends to be thin and crispy, which just doesn’t work for crepes.

Serve with: Poached eggs

Instructions

Make sure to prep your filling and toppings ahead of time. You want to fill your crepes as soon as they are done cooking so you can serve them hot.

Step 1: Place all the ingredients in your blender or food processor and cover. Process until completely blended, about thirty to forty seconds. Scrape the side and blend again for a few seconds. When done your batter should be smooth.

Step 2: Spray your frying pan and bring to medium low heat.

Step 3: Pour in a half tablespoon of batter to test. Tilt the pan in a circular motion. Your batter should move around the pan freely. Remove test batter from pan.

Step 4: Add three to four tablespoons of batter to the pan. It should create a thin coating to the bottom of the pan. Cook for approximately one minute. Once crepe batter is firm enough to flip, flip to the other side. Cook until light brown flecks form and remove from heat.

Step 5: Add your favorite filling and fold. Repeat until all your whole wheat crepes have been made.

Using a ricotta or goat cheese filling is an awesome twist that make for a very filling crepe.

Conclusion

These crepes freeze well. Just put them in a freezer safe bag and take them out the day before you want to have them. Just warm them up on low heat and serve.The batter can be made ahead of time too. Just store it in your refrigerator for up to three days and it will taste just as good as the day you mixed it.
