Whenever I post food pictures or talk about recipes online my newsfeed blows up! I’m getting the message loud and clear that the struggle around food is clear.
That you are looking for recipes that make healthy eating:
– ‘kid friendly’
To be honest I’m not sure what kid friendly really means but my 2 year old requested these so I’m going with it!
I tried this recipe a few weeks ago and they were delicious, easy and best yet….the biggest ingredient is SPINACH. Giving them loads of nutrients and a sweet green colour!
If you are looking to spice up your breakfast meal (or even dinner) here is something to peak your interest.
Instant Spinach Blender Crepes
Yield: 2 servings
You will need:
- 4 cups of baby spinach
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (I’m sure most milks would work ok)
- 2 eggs (or 2 flax eggs*)
- 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill – I’m sure regular flour would work ok too)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Fresh or frozen berries and/or fruit of your choosing**
- Maple Syrup (optional)
- Combine spinach, almond milk and eggs in a blender and blend until smooth. *(If you are using flax eggs, mix it in after you’ve blended milk and spinach) Turn blender to the lowest setting and slowly add flour until thoroughly combined.
- Melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, pour some batter in the skillet and gently swirl to spread it into a thin layer. Cook for about 1-2 minutes or until small bubbles form on top. Flip and cook other side for about 30 seconds. Repeat with remaining batter. (See TIPS)
- Divide crepes onto plates, fold in berries/fruit and drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy
- I find that cooking them longer then expected works best. They seem to lift off the pan when they are ready so if you have used oil on the pan and they are still sticking, make sure the pan is heated thoroughly and let them sit a little longer.
- I haven’t tried it but I would guess that you could store these in the fridge (with parchment paper between each) for a couple of days or freeze for longer. Reheat in the pan.
- If you wanted these to be savoury you could fill them with chicken, cheese, veggies, etc and they would be just as good!
*Flax Egg – 1 tbsp of ground flax (or chia seeds) and 3 tbsp of warm water. Mix and let sit for 5 minutes. (You will need two for this recipe) I’ve done this recipe both with the eggs and with the flax eggs and it works very similarly
**raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, banana’s, etc work well! If using frozen berries, I simply add some to a small pot and heat slowly until warmed through. Top rolled crepe with berry mix!
