Simple Whole Food Ingredients

These whole wheat vegan crepes pancakes are so healthy, made without any harmful processed foods. All you need is a non-stick pan and these clean ingredients:

  • Whole wheat flour – unlike all-purpose flour, the whole wheat is rich in fiber and important micronutrients
  • Dates – as a sweetener instead of sugar for healthier crepes pancakes
  • Ground flax and chia seeds – they serve as an egg-replacer and keep everything together
  • Baking powder, baking soda – just a half teaspoon of both is enough
  • Liquid – I used plain filtered water, you may also use any plant-based milk 
  • Maca root powder – to boost the nutritional value (it is optional)

5 thoughts on “Healthy Whole Wheat Vegan Crepes”

  1. Very tasty but did have to add quite a bit of water to thin. I used spouted wheat flour not sure if that caused it to be thicker.

    • Hi Lori,
      thank you for trying out the recipe! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Using spouted wheat flour might indeed have affected the thickness since it tends to absorb more liquid than regular flour.

  2. Oops. Help! I tried this recipe substituting spelt flour for whole wheat and using all ground flax since I didn’t have chia seeds. It was a disaster. I think the problem may have been the 5 minutes in a high powered blender. I used my Vitamix, and it cooked the ingredients. Did I use too high a speed or should the time have been shortened? Or was there something else. I used to make regular (non vegan) crepes successfully all the time, but these were a complete failure. I added water to thin out the dough (that’s what it was when the Vitamix cooked it, but when I put the mixture in the crepe pan, the mixture did not hold together sufficiently to ever turn a crepe. It was just a gooey mess. Can you help me with this? I really want to make crepes again, but am committed to vegan eating.

    • Hey Sally, I’m so sorry your crepes didn’t turn out as expected the first time.😞 Your substitutions of the two ingredients are not a problem at all. I guess it is the powerful Vitamix blender. When I make them I use a less powerful blender and they are fine. The crepes mixture is a bit thick but definitely doesn’t have to be as bread dough. You should probably blend it at lower speed for less time. You could also try blending the ingredients without the flour first and then add it in the end and blend for a bit so that it is well mixed. I hope this is helpful and if you have more questions we’re here to help.🙂

  3. 5 stars
    I enjoyed these very much. I used a whole white wheat flour. I made a half recipe, using a 6″ non-stuck pan and a scant 1/40
    I blended the mixture in the smoothie cup for less than a minute and the mixture was starting to get warm, so I stopped. It was a thicker batter than foe crepes, so I added some water to thin. I got 8 6″ crepes. Filled with fresh mashed blueberries, raw pecans, a dash cinnamon and lemon juice. Topped with a squeeze of juice and zest. Wonderful! Thanks!
