Crepes, Gluten Free

Crepes, Gluten Free

1/2 cup white rice flour (mochiko)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cups milk
1/8 cup use brandy or syrup or juice from black cherries, raspberries, boysenberries
2 tablespoons melted butter

For the crepe batter, combine flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add eggs, milk and brandy to the well and whisk to combine. Stir in melted butter. Cover batter and set aside for 25 minutes.
Crepes should be made in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cover the bottom of the pan with just enough batter to coat (by swirling pan in the air, off the burner). When edges naturally lift from the pan, turn the crepes with a very thin spatula and briefly heat other side to taste. (Not for long or they will get too crispy to roll up.)
So many ways to fill crepes:
Cherry or other fruit pie filling topped with powdered sugar.
OR broccoli and top with melted cheese.
OR a sweet cream sauce then top with chocolate syrup.
OR Teriyaki or other meat in sauce.
OR your favorite salad and dressing.
OR Nutella and bananas.
The sky is the limit when filling and topping your crepes …enjoy!!!



Use coconut flour or gluten free all-purpose flour in place of rice flour.

1 cup rolled oats, gluten free

1 cup steel cut oats

1 tsp. baking powder

1 cup smooth apple sauce

2 Tbsps. honey or pure maple syrup

2 Tbsps. coconut oil, melted

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. cardamom or ginger

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.     Grease a baking sheet or use parchment paper on a baking sheet.


Grind the steel cut oats into a flour using a blender, or use 1 cup gluten free oat flour.   Mix together oats, oat flour and baking powder then add in applesauce until smooth.   Add in honey, coconut oil until smooth.   Add cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and vanilla.


Shape into 2 or 3 inch oval shapes and place on prepared baking sheet.   You may also cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter.


Bake  for 30 to 45 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.    Flip them halfway through so both sides are golden brown.


Lay out for at least 24 hours to harden biscuits up.   I like to store in the freezer so they are cold for extra teething relief.
