The super healthy easy alternative to dairy, yeast and chemicals breakfast pancakes!
(and good, too)
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 lt milk (rice milk, skim milk, soy milk also ok)
- 1 cup flour (quantity depends on type: white or whole)
- 1 cup chestnut flour
- cinnamon (optional)
- little butter, oil or non-stick pan
I just had them this morning, and they are so delicious you don’t realize how healthy they are: in comparison with your typical pancake mix, this one contains natural sugars (from the chestnuts) so you don’t have to add much on top; no yeast (which is one of the main causes for yeast infection. Hm… I wander why they call it that way), and very little carbs.
Make the mix by beating the eggs, adding the milk and sifting in the flour while wisking, The texture should be much runnier than the pancake mix. The less flour you use, the thinner you can make your crepes (and the more you can eat for the same calories!).
and allow to rest for half an hour or so if you have a chance, something like making the mix, making coffee and take a quick shower. Then proceed as for a normal crepe: heat pan, pour very little of the runny mix in the center of the pan, and gently tilt it in a circular motion, to allow the mix to spread thin and coat the bottom of the pan.
As soon it solidifies, flip it and allow to firm.
– with just a little lemon or orange juice and a tiny spinkle of brown sugar, then folded in halves and halves again (that makes a quarter)
– rolled up with fresh ricotta inside
