Crepes! Gluten-free Dairy-free, Of Course :)

My husband called when he thought I was coming home from the store tonight and asked me to pick up a pumpkin spice latte for him. But alas, I was already at home :) So while I was making him one with our latte machine, the topic of crepes came up. I've honestly never eaten a crepe, but since I found a recipe I could adapt and my son loves pancakes, I figured I'd try it! The recipe was called "Dinner Crepes', but honestly, I have no idea what the difference is :)

Gluten-free Dairy-free Crepes

1 cup baking mix
1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour (to boost protein)
2 tablespoons oil
2 eggs
1 cup milk (I used vanilla coconut milk by So Delicious)
1 cup (or more) water

Mix all ingredients well.

I think I probably used about 1/3-1/2 cup of batter per crepe. I cooked these on a regular cast iron griddle with a little oil. I cooked them on very low heat and flipped once the bubble started popping.

We rolled them up with bananas inside and sprinkled with walnuts and honey. My husband thought they were so good he took a picture. Yum!

I like the idea of bananas inside. I'm glad your husband took a picture. It's always nice to have a visual.

Thanks for the soup theme idea. I think I'll change the Nov. 4 theme to that.
