These clean eating crepes are the perfect special-occasion breakfast!

My son is developing quite the palate. He comes by it honestly, but some days, it’s interesting to try and keep up with his developing tastes.

Normally, we are a pancake or waffle household. I love waffles simply because I can make a big batch for freezing and then just pop them in the toaster in the morning for a quick breakfast. Especially topped with peanut butter. Yum!

But this past weekend, he decided that wasn’t good enough anymore, and suddenly crepes were the only thing that would do.

It’s not a bad thing since I’ve been meaning to do a basic crepe recipe for a while now. But he and I are going to have to do a crash course in the kitchen so he can satisfy his own, “shee-shee” cravings on demand. Thank goodness I taught him to eat clean because if he was craving the regular versions, The poor kid would be far less healthy than his current, vibrant condition. But on the other hand, I have a kid that eats well. And that’s saying something!

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (affiliate link)
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • Sucanat (affiliate link) blended into powdered sugar and used as needed for topping

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together everything except the Sucanat (that's just for topping).
  • The trick with crepes is to keep them thin. These are not pancakes. They should be about the thickness of a tortilla.
  • Ladle some batter slowly into an oiled, non-stick pan. Rotate the pan to get the batter to spread thinly over the entire base of the skillet.
  • Cook on low to medium heat, flipping as needed until cooked.
  • Place the cooked crepe on a plate, add your favorite fillings, and either roll them up like a burrito or fold them into quarters.
  • Sprinkle with a little powdered Sucanat and enjoy!

  1. i guess i am having a 50’s moment, but this recipe sounds great – however my mind is drawing a blank on fillings. could you please recommend some fillings you have used? thanks! 🙂

      Lorrie РFresh fruit is always a winner. 100% fruit spread, or even something savory like saut̩ed mushrooms and cheese.

  2. ooooooo – those DO sound like yummy options! thanks! 🙂

      Lorrie – My pleasure!

    Thank you, Tiffany, for sharing this fantastic recipe. My boyfriend and I just purchased a home and there has been quite a lot of fixing up to do. Long story short, since I am not that handy with house repairs, I like to surprise him with home made meals, especially breakfast, and I like to use clean eating recipes to make sure only the best ingredients are fueling him through the day. One day, I decided to surprise him with this crepe recipes. I had honey and fruit ready for him to top them off with, but he refused to add anything and simply enjoyed them completely plain. Thank you again, you’re crepes were quite a hit.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Elizabeth – Wow! Consider me flattered! 😀 So happy you both enjoyed them!

  4. Hi,

    thank you for posting! I’m a huge fan of your page. I’m wondering if you have the nutritional information for this recipe?

    Thank you 🙂

      Jenn – Sorry, I’m having to go through all my recipes and remove the nutrition data due to liability. But MyFitnessPal has a great calculator. All you have to do is enter the url of the recipe and it imports the entire ingredient list for you. Hope that helps!

  5. Hi 🙂
    First of all; LOVE your website and your recipes! Really helped me stick to cleam eating, which is very important since I compete in taekwondo and need to be in top shape! So thank you! 😀

    second lf all; these look and sound amazing! Though when you said; “these aren’t pancakes”, I knew I had to say something! You see, I live in Norway,, and here, crepes, are just that! We don’t call them that, only pancakes ( or “pannekaker” in norwegian 🙂 ) and what you call pancakes, we call “amercian pancakes”! (“Amerikanske pannekaker” in norwegian) just like we say football (soccer) and american football 😀

    so when I read that these aren’t pancakes, I just had to tell you^^ as a simple fun fact really 🙂

    Thanks for all the amazing recipes! Please keep ’em coming! 😀

      Bibi – Thanks for that! I love little nuggets of information like that! I lived in Germany for a while, so I totally get it. Although their pancakes are a bit thicker too. Closer to the American version. 🙂

  6. Hi! This recipe sounds amazing! Just wondering if its possible to make the batter (or the fully cooked crepe) and either freeze or store it (recommended length?). Love your website and your meal planner! Thanks for doing what you do so well!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kate – Thanks! Happy I can be helpful! You could store the batter in the fridge for up to 3 days. I don’t recommend freezing it. The cooked crepes can be frozen, although I highly recommend putting parchment in between them so you don’t end up with a solid, frozen brick. Just be sure you wrap them well.
