Classic French crêpes in a delicious dairy-free version with oat milk. No taste difference, better for you, jump to the recipe and get busy!
Of course, you knew when you saw my homemade oat milk that I would want to try to substitute it in some recipes. The texture of the oat milk is the perfect substitution for this French crêpes recipe.
Classic French Crêpes or Oat Milk imposter?
During the test tasting, absolutely no one guessed it was not my usual French Classic Recipe. They were totally surprised that it was made with oat milk! Same texture, same taste, healthier version is just a win-win for everyone.
We are not a dairy-free, nut-free, or vegan household, however, I do love to challenge my family with healthier or better-for-you recipes. I'm very inspired by Jillian Harris, who does not claim herself as vegan but makes a huge effort for the environment. So I do my bits too, my way.
Quick Recipe For Snack Time
In France, 4 p.m. is sacred and it's called 'le goûter'. This is the perfect time you would enjoy the oat milk French crêpes recipe.
The making of the Oat Milk itself is, as I explained in my previous post, very easy and quick. Making French crêpes is not as intimidating as it is, you really just throw all your ingredients in a blender, mix well and there you have your batter.
**TIP** On the stove, on medium heat, warm up a pan. With a paper towel, coat some olive oil to avoid any mess.
Once your pan is HOT, not before, pour some batter.
Always wait for the pan to be hot enough, otherwise, your first French crêpes will not cook well and turning it will be challenging. Don't worry the next one will be fine!
PSSST! Did you see? I could not resist spreading some of my Red Currant Jam on these babies! This Oat Milk French Crêpes recipe is prepared without any sugar so you can treat yourself with the topping!

Well, instead of tea and crumpets, scones, or biscuits, I'll have tea and crêpes. A nice change of pace and we are familiar with making regular crepes. We even have a special pan for it. I'll have to make some oat milk before I attempt the French version. This is on my agenda tomorrow.
These oat milk french crepes look like the perfect breakfast to have with your family! they look so delicious and they have the perfect colour. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I cant wait to try it out this weekend!

Hi Melanie, just found this recipe and trying it now. You don't make it clear at what point you add the olive oil, or if maybe you don't? I'm going to assume the 2 Tsp go in the blender with the oat milk, let's see!
Hello Marije, that's right the 2tps of olive oil go in the blender, I will edit the recipe card, thank you for pointing it out! Let me know how it turned out!
