Grain free crepes

I am always looking for grain free breakfast ideas and crepes are a good high protein breakfast option. My kids and I are sensitive to egg yolks but we haven’t noticed much with the whites so I have been cooking with whites lately.

Grain free crepes

3 tablespoons coconut flour

1/4 cup ground sunflower seeds

1 tablespoon raw buckwheat groats ground (they are a seed not a grain)

2 tablespoons tapioca flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2  banana

4 egg whites

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

4 tablespoons olive or grapeseed oil

1 tablespoon maple syrup(or honey)

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

grated rind of 1 small lemon

2 teaspoons vanilla

pinch of sea salt

Put all ingredients except eggs into blender and blend until smooth. Mix in egg whites and rest of ingredients together in separate bowl. You need a no stick pan to make these because they are very thin and will stick and break in a regular pan. Pour in about 1/4 cup of batter in the greased (coconut oil) pan at a time and lift the pan sideways in order to  spread them out thin. They need to be as thin as possible so they can have the right texture.  Do do turn over or roll until cooked all the way through. You can put fresh fruit , maple syrup, or just eat them with butter or butter alternative.
