Oatmeal Crêpes

Oatmeal Crêpes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 cup Postitively Free™ Instant Oats
  • 1 cup Baking Free™gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
  • olive oil (for cooking the crêpes)
  • 1 cup jam of your choice (for filling the crêpes)
  • Confectioners sugar or whipped cream (for serving)

Directions

Step 1
In food processor, mix together oats, sugar and flour. Pulse 3 or 4 times to grind oats and combine.
Step 2
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, 3 cups of water, vanilla and lemon zest. Whisk in the dry ingredients until smooth. Whisk in the butter.
Step 3
Place an 8 or 10 inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush the skillet with olive oil. When the oil is hot (not smoking but rippling on the bottom), pour in about 1/3 cup of the batter. Quickly turn the skillet in a circle to coat the entire bottom of the skillet with the batter. Cook until brown on one side, about a minute. Once the crêpe releases from the pan (which means its cooked on that side), carefully flip the crêpe with a spatula. Brown the second side for about 30 seconds.
Step 4
Remove to a plate, and repeat with remaining crêpe batter.
Step 5
To serve, fill the warm crêpes with about a tablespoon of jam each and fold into quarters. See picture. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm. Makes 8-10 crêpes.
