Almond Wholemeal Crêpes

It’s morning, which means crêpes.

Or

it’s evening, which means crêpes.

I am talking healthier wholemeal, almond, vanilla, nutmegy crêpes. The kind that do for breakfast, lunch, dessert and  ‘hiding in the panty from the kids’ elevenses. Sharing not strictly necessary.  Just saying in case you missed that.

Crepe Recette @ Recipes From A Pantry

These are almost like the crêpes you get in the fabulous crêperies on Parisian streets. Except healthier. Or did I mention that already?

Best way to eat them Parisian style – with an elegant layer of nutella.

Best way to eat them Recipes From A Pantry style –  stuffed with maple flavoured Greek yoghurt, sliced strawberries and almonds.

Or with ‘dam’ aka jam (my youngest) and ice cream.

Sky is the limit.

PS the kiddoes love helping whip these up and all that pan swirling action.

Pomegranate pancakes.

Pumpkin pancakes.

Recipe type: Breakfast

These are almost like the crêpes you get in the fabulous crêperies on Parisian street. Except healthier.
Ingredients
  • 55g (2oz) wholemeal (wholewheat) flour
  • 55g (2oz) plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ tsp grated nutmeg
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 200ml (3/4 + 2 tbsp) almond milk
  • 80ml (1/4 cup) water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Honey to taste (optional)
Instructions
  1. Mix together the flours, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add in the egg and whisk into a paste.
  3. In another bowl mix together the almond milk, water, vanilla extract and honey (if using).
  4. Then slowly add a little bit of this milk mixture into the paste whisking well before adding in some more.
  5. You need to do this very slowly so as to avoid having lumps.
  6. Continue till all the milk is whisked in and the batter is smooth.
  7. Heat your crepe pan on low medium heat and melt a bit of butter in it.
  8. When the butter starts sizzling add in about 2-3 tbsp of the batter mixture (depending on the size of your pan) and swirl the mixture until a thin layer coats the pan.
  9. Cook for about 30 seconds until the edges and parts of the crepe is crisp.
  10. Then flip the crepe and cook for up to 30 seconds.
  11. Keep crepes warm in oven till you have finished cooking the rest.
  12. Serve with various toppings.
Notes
If you end up with a lumpy batter, a quick whisk with the electric hand held blender sorts you out.

  1. Love crepes! They are almost same as the ones we have in Poland, my granda used to make sweet cheese filling with cinammon and rasins ;)

    • Ohhh – those sound lush Sylvia. I have to try that.

  2. Oh my goodness these look amazing! Almonds are a big hit in my house, I’ll definitely be trying these out. x

    • I am addicted to almonds and cashews so will try them in everything.

  3. I absolutely love pancakes and love the idea of using wholemeal flour. I will be trying these at the weekend. Thank you so much for the recipe.

  6. Yum, yum, yum… I’ve never thought about making my own crepes, your looks very Parisian indeed :)

  7. These look fab, lovely pictures. GG

  8. I’ve never actually tried almond milk as I find the diary kind works just as well for me. However, if anything would tempt me it would be this crepe recipe. I can just imagine how the nut milk would complement the creppey goodness.

    • Exactly Janice, and you can use both milk or almond milk to your preference.

  9. Oh wow, how ironic, as I just recently bought a crepe pan but I haven’t had a chance to use it yet, Bintu! My dad made crepes for all the time when I was kid. I would ask him, “What can I have in it?” He would always wink, looking down at me and say, “Anything you like…” :)

    • I really like the sound of your dad Mike.

  10. These sound delicious and look delicious! Thank you so much for the clear instructions and for a healthier version :) Going to give this a try when i find some time :) x
