Method of Preparation:

  1. Prepare the Crepe Batter:

    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the chosen dry ingredients.

    • In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients, including the eggs, melted butter or oil, and vanilla extract (if using). Gradually add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, whisking until smooth and free of lumps. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.

  2. Cook the Crepes:

    • Heat a non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or oil.

    • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan, swirling to spread it evenly and thinly. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges begin to lift and the underside is golden brown. Flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter.

  3. Prepare the Fillings:

    • For sweet fillings, wash and slice the fruits, prepare the nut butter, yogurt, or chocolate spread.

    • For savory fillings, sauté the vegetables, cook the proteins, and grate or slice the cheese.

  4. Assemble the Crepes:

    • Place a cooked crepe on a plate. Add your chosen fillings in a line down the center. Fold the crepe over the fillings, either in half or in a roll.

  5. Add Toppings:

    • Sprinkle your chosen toppings over the filled crepe for added flavor and texture.

  6. Serve:

    • Serve the crepes warm, drizzled with honey or maple syrup for sweet crepes, or with a side of fresh herbs for savory crepes.

Considerations:
