Quinoa Crepes | Quick Protein Packed Breakfast Ideas

Quinoa is a recent favorite at home and I have been experimenting this seed in many recipes.This is one such quick fix recipe to make a quick breakfast or for a after school snack.They are protein packed crepes and can be made filled with your desired filling of your choice.If you have the quinoa flour ready at hand then this hardly requires any time to put together.I spread the berry jam(that I made sometime back) just like jam rolls and kids loved it.This recipe had been sitting in my drafts for months now and back then blueberries were in season.But you can top with any other desired fruits of your choice.There is no obvious nutty tastes of quinoa,cinnamon adds a nice flavor to it.The thin crepes can be filled with some savory filling too to make a savory crepe.Try and enjoy with your loved ones !

Preparation time~ 20 mins
Cooking time~20 mins
Serves~ 8-10 crepes

quinoa flour 1/3 cup
whole wheat flour 1/4 cup
eggs 2 large
whole milk 1 1/2 cup
cinnamon powder1/2 tsp
corn starch 2tsp
honey 1tbsp
salt a pinch

  • Combine both flours,corn starch,salt and cinnamon powder.
  • Lightly beat the eggs in a blender or with beater.Add flour mixture in it and mix well without lumps.Gradually add in milk and make a thin batter.

  • Heat a pan and add a ladle of batter.Spread evenly with the back of the ladle in a circle or swirl the pan.
  • Cook on low flame as it tends to get browned faster.Flip and cook the other side.Remove on a plate and keep covered.
  • Lower the heat to low and repeat the same step of making crepes till you finish the batter.
  • Lightly spread the jam or nutella in the inside and roll,serve.Dust with icing sugar and top with fruits of your desired choice(I served with berry jam and topped with blueberries).

* I had shared the quinoa flour recipe sometime back,if you haven't checked out then the link is here.
* The recipe is adapted from here and I have tweaked slightly.The original recipe calls for two eggs and two egg whites but I used only two eggs and increased the quantity of milk instead.
* You can use all purpose flour instead of wheat flour too.In that case add milk as per the consistency.Wheat flour uses more milk and makes slightly thicker crepes than maida(all purpose flour) ones.
* You can make savory crepes using this recipe but omit the honey in the recipe.
