Are you tired of the typical healthy breakfast..egg whites, whole wheat toast, oatmeal? It gets boring eating the same thing week after week. Ready to try Vegan Chickpea Crepes?
Every once in a while it's a good idea to change things up by thinking beyond your standard list of ingredients and menu items.
Try the unique Chickpea & Fava Flour, I used to create these delicious Vegan Chickpea Crepes, they pair perfectly with fresh cut fruit or with a farm to table ready all natural Preserves, jelly's and jams.
How do they Taste?
The Vegan Chickpea Crepes have a savory flavor, slightly sweet and earthy.
When you bite into the Fruit Filled Rolled Crepe the combination of flavors explode in your mouth with a sweet eruption of wholesome goodness.
Do they have any Health Benefits?
The Chickpea Crepes are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. Which is what you need to start your day feeling full and energized.
Where do I buy Fresh Jam?
If your town offers a Farmer's Market, a Local Farm Stand, or Farm to Market Grocery Store, you can find some excellent Fresh Fruit Preserves which I find are always best.
I live in New York's Long Island, and Long Island's East End offers many Farms, Wineries, and Local Farm Stands where one can find fresh fruits and vegetables, including fresh made Preserves. The Fruit Preserves are a seasonal treat so I load up when they are available.

No time to cook but still want to eat Healthy try out BistroMD
- 1 ¼ Cup of Garbanzo & Fava Flour
- 2 ½ Tablespoons of Chives
- ½ Teaspoon of Salt
- 1 Cup of Water
- 1 Teaspoon of Olive Oil
1 - In a Medium bowl, whisk together your flour, chives and salt. Add water; whisk until smooth. (Batter should be a bit thinner than your standard pancake batter - if it's too thick, add a bit more water)
2 - Lightly brush an 8 inch non stick omelette pan with a touch of Olive Oil; place over medium heat until oil shimmers. Pour 3 Tablespoons of your batter into the pan and swirl the batter around so it covers the entire bottom of the skillet. Cook until the top looks dry and the edges start to pull away from the pan and the underside is golden, 2-3 minutes. Loosen the crepe edges carefully with a thin spatula; flip and cook 2 more minutes. Slide the crepe out of the pan; set aside and keep warm.
3 - Repeat with remaining batter, brushing your pan with a tiny bit of remaining oil as crepes start to stick.
4 - Now comes the creative part..take your favorite fruit preserve or jam and spread across your crepe and roll or try a crepe pizza - spread your fruit jam on top of your crepe like pizza sauce and then add you Cool Whip Lite and it's a breakfast pizza. I also tried eating them plain and just sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar and it was delicious.Print
