Gluten Free Breakfast Crepes

Once I find something I like, I have a tendency to eat the same thing day after day. Therefore, I make a concerted effort to discover new recipes and modify them to diversify my meals! The Gluten Free Breakfast Crepe is a modification of a recipe I found on the website for Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix. This YogaLean meal is a great way to start your day! The beauty of the crepe is that you can fill it with a variety of ingredients. Each crepe you make for yourself can be different and each crepe made for a family can be filled with ingredients that fit personal tastes. If you are using this before a workout, add additional protein. Enjoy this Gluten Free Breakfast and find other gluten free recipes at Healthy Recipe Variations.

Instructions: (Makes 4-6 crepes)

Combine ingredients and remove as many “lumps” as possible

Heat the pan with a small amount of oil

Scoop 1/4 Cup of the batter and add to the hot pan. Turn the pan in a circle trying to get batter to form a thin layer on the bottom of the pan.

Use a spatula to start to lift the edges and make your way, carefully to the center. (Add additional oil of batter sticks…start conservative…add more as needed)

Carefully flip crepe. Cook 1-2 minutes on the second side.

Serve or cover with a cloth or parchment and make additional crepes.
