Oat flour crepes are one of my most favourite breakfast dishes. They are quick and simple to make, plus you are likely to have all the ingredients to hand already. These are ideal for those on a budget who fancy something a little different to traditional flour crepes. I actually based this off my original crepe recipe as it is always such a hit.
Oat flour crepes are ideal for those who are wanting to keep fuller for longer, as these provide lots of fibre and slow-release energy. They are child-friendly too which is always a bonus. Why not whip up a batch for the whole family to enjoy? If you want ready made oat flour for even more ease, I highly recommend Real Food Source, which is where I buy my gluten free oat flour in bulk. I also tend to use Glebe Farm oat milk as my milk alternative too.
The base of these crepes is relatively plain, so you can add whatever toppings you fancy. I love topping mine with nut butter and strawberries, but feel free to play around. You could even fill them with chocolate spread (like this one) and roll them up like those ready-to-eat ones in the supermarkets. Or what about trying savoury toppings instead?
