"Y'all know I am crazy about sneaking in fruits or vegetables in every day recipes whenever I can. It's especially easy to do by adding organic baby foods. I often worry if Kai is getting the right nutrients. I now find it easy to supplement with the Amara pouches or make these nutritious crepes ahead of time for a yummy organic baby meal! I used Amara Oats n Berries this time but can see myself adding new flavors like the Potato and Kale for a more savory flavor. These really make a great organic toddler snack the whole family can enjoy! Kevin and I ate at least 2 each. Must make again for our next brunch!
I love this recipe and modified it from our standard crepe recipe from here. The crepe batter is so simple because you most likely already have these ingredients on hand.
- 2 pouches of Amara Oats n Berries
- 3/4 - almost 1 cup organic flour
- 2 large organic eggs
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup organic milk
- 2 tablespoons of melted grass-fed butter
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- When measuring the Amara Oats n Berries and flour, use a 1 cup measuring cup, fill the bottom with 2 bags of organic baby food, then fill the rest to the brim with flour.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour-baby food mixture and eggs. Stir in water and milk slowly. It will seem "watery".
- Add melted butter and salt, then mix until no more clumps and smooth.
- Heat frying pan over medium heat with coconut oil. Add over 1/4 cup of batter to the pan. Rotate the pan slowly, in a circular motion to coat the bottom with even amounts of batter.
- Cook one side for 2 minutes and flip and cook the other side until golden. My FAVORITE crepe/omelet spatula can be found here. I literally use it for anything egg related.
I wanted to add some fun colors and textures to these organic crepes so I made a yogurt mixture. Just simply cut up some fruits on hand and mix in. If I was indulging, I would replace it with freshly whipped creme, but let's save that for a cheat meal :)
After trying the yogurt mixture as a topping or on the side, I think I preferred it on the side. The slightly sweet yet complex taste of the Amara Oats n Berries really shines through on it's own. I cannot wait to make this recipe again!
