Sneaky Crepes

Created by Erin Budd of  


These crepes are packed with wholesome ingredients and nutritional punch. Arrowroot flour is easily digestible and contains good amounts of fiber, potassium and manganese. The veggies, berries and shredded coconut offer antioxidants, vitamins and additional health benefits. Of course, the eggs provide a pop of protein for added energy. Enjoy these with the kids (and adults) in your home but shhh…don’t tell them you got the recipe from us!


2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or more if you like cinnamon)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 small carrot, or 1/4 cup baked sweet potato (left over from the night before), or
1/4 cup cooked squash
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
2 tablespoons arrowroot flour
1 tablespoon butter for the frying pan
2 small handfuls of blueberries (1 for each crepe) 


1. Blend the first 6 ingredients until you have a smooth batter. (I use a Vitamix which pulverizes raw carrot. If your blender is not so strong you may want to use cooked carrot). It should be liquidy and easy to pour. If it seems thicker, you may want to add 1 tablespoon at a time of liquid – coconut milk, nut milk, milk, whey, etc.

2. Melt about 1 tablespoon of butter in a small skillet on medium-low heat.

3. Pour about 1/3 cup of the mixture into the pan and swirl the pan so that it is coated. (If you decide to make pancakes, silver dollar size works well).

4. Sprinkle a small handful of blueberries over the batter. After about 2 minutes (when the edges lift easily), flip the crepe. Turn the heat to low and cook the other side for about another minute. Enjoy as-is or with some real maple syrup, or with more berries sprinkled on top.

Makes 2 crepes (serves one).
