Thin crepes are simple to make since you only need a few basic ingredients such as flour, milk, and eggs. Plus these ingredients are usually inexpensive, which makes this dish an affordable breakfast for all budgets.
In fact, thin crepes can be made many ways: for breakfast or brunch, for lunch, for dessert… And they can be served sweet or salty! You can also make them ahead. With ham, eggs, and cheese, thin crepes can make a delicious lunch like those you find in Paris. With fruits, chocolate, homemade hazelnut spread (or shop-bought, like Nutella), or maple syrup, they make an excellent breakfast or dessert. In short, they’re super versatile and delicious, which makes them perfect for lively brunches, but also for busy weeknights.

There are many ways to use surplus, whether for a salty or sweet dish. Have fun and be creative! Use different fillings and make surprising flavour combinations!
Did you know you could switch out cow’s milk with a protein milk that contains up to 18 grams of protein per cup? It will make your crepe recipe more filling while not affecting the taste. You could use a plant-based milk of your choice. This recipe is super easy to personalize!
Cow’s or plant-based milk
In a small bowl, mix the flour with the sugar and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and vegetable oil.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the preparation and mix using a hand mixer until homogeneous.
Heat a 9 inches (23 cm) non-stick pan or a crepe pan over medium heat. Once it is hot, drizzle with a bit of olive oil.
For each crepe, pour between 3 to 4 tablespoons (45 to 60 ml) of the preparation. Cook about 45 seconds or until the crepe is golden. Turn and cook 15 to 30 more seconds.
Yes! You can absolutely make these crepes the day before. Simply place a parchment paper layer between each crepe and stack them. Wrap aluminium foil over the stack and put it in the refrigerator or freezer. When ready to serve, let warm to room temperature or thaw the desired number of crepes.
