Healthy Oat Crepes (Gluten-free OR Dairy-free option)

I was not familiar with oats, but one of my British friends told me about it, so I got interested in it and I bought it!

I’m still experimenting with it for baking, but first, I made this recipe: oat crepes!

I blended Tapioca flour to get a slight chewy texture, and it turned out great. In addition, they don’t break easily during cooking on the pan.

My mom would make crepes for breakfast when my friends came for a sleepover. She prepared lots of different kinds of filling, not only sweet, but also savory like ham, boiled eggs and fresh veggies. We enjoyed making our favorite crepes. I always ate too many savory crepes and sweet crepes.

Enjoy these healthy crepes with your favorite fillings!

Helpful Tips

I blended oat flour and tapioca flour for the texture, but you don’t need to stick to those! You just need to prepare 1 cup of flour of your choosing. You can make 1 cup of oat flour, or 1 cup of all purpose flour, or 1 cup of whole wheat flour… just make it 1 cup! You can also use plant-based milk instead of conventional milk and coconut oil instead of butter.
