Easy Lemon Crepes

LEMON CREPES yields a lot because I doubled the recipe. This batch fed 2 grown men, 1 pregnant mama, and a hungry 4 year old boy (and we have two leftover!)

I love this recipe! It was so easy (and if I think it's easy...). I have always been intimidated by making crepes (I usually ask my pal Amanda to make them- she's a pro), but these turned out great and I didn't need any special crepe tools to do it (no fancy crepe pan or fancy spatula). Here's what I did:

  • 2 cups almond milk (made my own based on the My New Roots recipe)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour (we used organic all purpose)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut palm sugar (low glycemic and not as sweet)
  • 1/2 teaspon salt
  • liberal sprinkles of cinnamon
  • butter for pan
  • a few lemons for squeezing (got ours from our tree)

Preparation

  • Blend the milk, eggs, and vanilla together. Add the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon on top of the liquid ingredients. Blend until all smooth. 
  • I just used our 2 skillets (no fancy crepe pan or fancy spatula). Medium heat. Add a bit of butter once heated. Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter in the hot skillet. Cook for 2 or until bottom is lightly browned. 
  • Fold the crepe in half, then fold in half again; transfer to a plate. Squeeze a bit of lemon and enjoy!!
  • Our son preferred his with plain yogurt (full fat, goat's milk yogurt) instead of lemon. He was a member of the Clean Plate Club (see photo below)


My Favorite Granola

I got this recipe from Amanda who got it from Emily. I have no idea where Emily got it, but it's amazing.

GRANOLA
3cups rolled oats
1cup chopped pecans (you could use any nut i guess, but pecan rocks)
1cup whole wheat PASTRY flour (this is the binder...KEY ingredient!)
pinch of sea salt
1+ tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup maple syrup (use grade B!)
2tsp vanilla extract

mix all ingredients
spread on lightly oiled cookie sheet
bake at 325 for 30-35min, turning halfway through (it'll still seem soft-ish, but the cooling down will harden it nicely).
