Whole Food Wednesdays – Sprouted Flour Crepes with Rhubarb Strawberry Compote

The beauty of crepes is that you can make one batter and still serve it with a multitude of fillings, sweet or savory. This is unique because they can be served for breakfast, and later on for dinner that night, and have them be a completely different and interesting meal.

Of course being French, we grew up with crepes and a multitude of fillings. I think my favorite has always been the savory kind filled with asparagus and Hollandaise sauce. Now that I’m older and can make fruit filling as yummy as this Oven Roasted Rhubarb Strawberry Compote (just slightly sweet and not sickeningly so), I would say they’ve come to a tie.

I’m using a sprouted spelt flour in this recipe but there’s no reason you couldn’t use any flour you have on hand. We use sprouted spelt as our go to flour for the nutrient content and it’s ease in digestibility. I highly recommend sourcing one out in your area and there’s plenty to choose from online as well. We use Anita’s Organic Mill and have been very happy with the product. To Your Health Sprouted Flour is also great.

I’m sure this recipe could also easily be converted into a soaked flour recipe following a Traditional Foods method. If you’re interested in learning how to soak your flour (it’s way cheaper), I recommend Wardeh’s eCourse at GNOWFGLINS. It’s wonderful. You can read some of what we’ve been learning here.

We loved the Oven Roasted Rhubarb Jam so much we decided to play with the recipe a bit, but it’s essentially the same recipe. We added 2 cups of strawberries to incorporate some of the frozen organic berries we had left over from last years crop.

Sprouted Spelt Flour Crepes

  • 1 cup sprouted spelt flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted

Put the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth, approximately 5 seconds. Repeat blending for 5 seconds if necessary.

Allow the batter to sit refrigerated for at least 2 hours before using.

Heat a nonstick crepe pan over medium high heat. Stir the batter. It should have thickened a bit as the flour absorbs the liquid. Add a little water, if necessary. The batter should be as thin as it was before it was refrigerated. Pour anywhere from 1/8 of a cup to a 1/4 cup of batter (depending on the size of the pan). I was using a 10 inch pan and used a 1/4 cup of batter.

Pour the batter in the center of the pan and quickly twirl the pan in a circular motion to evenly spread the batter in a thin sheet. Once the edges start to lift and curl slightly, flip and cook for 20 seconds or until a slightly golden color appears. Crepes cook quickly, about 45 seconds for the first side and 20 seconds on the second side.

Don’t be discouraged if the first few crepes go to the garbage. There’s a bit of technique involved and you’ll get the hang of it after a couple of tries, especially if this is your first go at crepes. My first one is almost always a bit of a flop.

Stuff the crepes with your favorite filling. Steamed veggies and a Hollandaise sauce is always a classic, or serve them sweet with fruit and cream. We chose to serve ours with an Oven Roasted Rhubarb Strawberry Compote and Greek Style Yogurt.

Oven Roasted Rhubarb Strawberry Compote

  • 4 cups rhubarb
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey

Preheat the oven to 400F. Clean and chop the rhubarb into 1 inch sections. If the berries are large, you may want to cut them in half, I left mine whole and gave them a quick mash once they were cooked. In a 9 x 13 baking pan, add the rhubarb, strawberries, water and honey. Stir to combine and coat. Bake for 30 minutes.

Serve on toast, crepes, yogurt or eat with a spoon!

      Those all sound amazing Amber. Thank you for always sharing such healthy inspiring recipes.

  4. Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry May 23, 2012 at 3:43 am #

    My French husband LOVES crepes. I am still determined to make a healthy gluten-free crepe recipe for him one of these days :) I shared my Coffee Ice Cream (Caffeine Free) and Beauty Smoothie recipes this week. Take Care France!

    • beyondthepeel May 23, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

      Beauty Smoothie eh! Well that sounds very intriguing…

  5. Mary Bergfeld May 23, 2012 at 4:43 am #

    Hi! This week I’ve posted on the hazards of sunscreens, most of which contain petrochemical ingredients and endocrine disruptors which are absorbed directly into your bloodstream, as well as how to find a sunscreen so safe, you could eat it.

    I’ve also posted a review and giveaway for SongCroft Naturals skin care products, which are handmade on an organic permaculture farm, and are safe, ethical and effective!

    Have a great week and thanks for hosting!

      Thanks so much Dawn for sharing this. What a timely post as we move into sunscreen weather.

  7. Koko May 23, 2012 at 3:42 pm #

    I put up my rhubarb crumble. It’s made with spelt flour and sweeteneed with honey! I love crepes, France and I looove that these are whole grain. The compote sounds wonderful too! A way to use rhubarb without too much sweetener.

    • beyondthepeel May 23, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

      My favorite part is that the consistency is very jam like without all the rot your teeth sweetness and it’s completely hands off cooking!

  8. inspirededibles May 23, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    Look at all the goodness I missed while we were away!  I love the idea of a sprouted crepe (actually, I love crepes period :)) – and the strawberry rhubard compote to accompany them is simply dreamy.  I make a similar dessert crepe that I will have to share at some point… lovely France.

    • beyondthepeel May 23, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

      Hi Kelly, I look forward to your recipe for the dessert crepe! Yummers.

  9. Cookincanuck May 23, 2012 at 6:30 pm #

    I’ve used whole wheat and buckwheat flours for crepes, but never sprouted flour.  Now I definitely want to try this.  The rhubarb strawberry compote sounds like the perfect accompaniment.

  10. Jeanette Chen May 24, 2012 at 2:10 am #

    Your crepes look fabulous France – I’ve yet to try sprouted flour, but hope to soon. I’ve linked up my Grilled Salmon with Coconut Curry Sauce, a quick and easy dinner that my kids enjoy.

  11. MJ's Kitchen May 24, 2012 at 2:35 am #

    Love these crepes! I actually made spelt crepes for the first time this weekend and loved them! Love your roasted rhubarb strawberry compote!  That’s got me hungry all over again. Have a great week and thanks for hosting.

  12. Laureen @ FoxintheKitchen May 24, 2012 at 5:52 am #

    Oh your crepes look so good! I’ve got a recipe for some gluten free Crepes that I’ve been wanting to try and I think your Oven Roasted Rhubarb Strawberry Compote would make the perfect filling! Heck, I might just make the compote to add to my homemade yogurt :-)
    Have a great week!

    • beyondthepeel May 25, 2012 at 4:17 am #

      Hi Laureen, It’s delish with yogurt! Hope you decide to give it a try.

  13. The Café Sucré Farine May 24, 2012 at 1:23 pm #

    Beautiful France! I love the idea of a whole meal of crepes, sweet and savory! Very fun and a unique party idea!

    • beyondthepeel May 25, 2012 at 4:16 am #

      Thanks for stopping by Chris. I think there’s so many fun applications for this. I look forward to trying some out. Any suggestions?

  14. Miz Helen May 25, 2012 at 4:43 pm #

    I just love these crepes, they are awesome!   Hope you have a special week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
