Quinoa Crepes

Quinoa Crepes

I experimented to see if I could make a delicious crepe using only quinoa for the flour--it turned out awesome! This protein-packed crepe recipe is made from four simple ingredients: quinoa, milk, eggs and salt.  With a blender such as a Blendtec or Vitamix, you can blend whole grains for 90 seconds, such as quinoa in this case, to make your own fresh flour, then simply blend in the milk, eggs, and salt for a crepe batter. I'm so excited that we now have this simple and nutritious boost to our crepes. I hope you enjoy it too.
