"I love this recipe because it is so simple to make. I have made it healthier by substituting whole wheat flour and 1% milk. I like to fill them with non-fat plain Greek yogurt and blueberries warmed in maple syrup. Yum!"

  1. Whisk together flour and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add milk and water, stirring to combine. Mix in salt and beat until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Tilt pan with a circular motion so batter coats the surface evenly.
  3. Cook crepe until bottom is light brown, about 2 minutes. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook other side. Serve hot with yogurt, maple syrup, and blueberries.

After adding an extra 1/2 cup milk, these were truly delightful, healthy crepes! The original recipe makes a batter that's too dense. (A side thought: "Whole Wheat Crepes" would have been a much better recipe title.)

its very easy to make used unsweetened almond vanilla milk on second batch a lot better taste...oh i mixed the wet ingredients first and then slowly added the four...also sift the flour if its been sitting awhile

I forgot the butter altogether, used skim milk, otherwise used the recipe exactly as stated and they turned out beautiful and quick. I got 7 crepes and a mini crepe out of this recipe
