Sprouted Wheat Crepes

Like fermentation, sprouting can greatly increase the nutritional profile of certain grains [source]. I sprouted some wheat and decided to make crepes. I love these crepes because they are made from whole intact sprouted grains, they’re really easy to make and taste great. So I’m sharing the recipe with you!

Sprouted Wheat Crepes

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • ~ a handful of sprouted wheat
  • milk, enough to make a thin batter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • butter, to cook with
  • honey to serve

How to:

  1. In a blender, grind wheat sprouts till fine. Add milk and mix until a batter forms.
  2. Add eggs and blend again. Mix until you have a consistency similar to that of condensed milk.
  3. Heat butter in a pan, pour a small amount of the batter into the pan, swirl the pan so the mixture spread and forms a thin pancake (crepe) and cook until browned on each side.
  4. Enjoy how you like.

In these crepes I used preserves from Bonne Maman. I tried a different flavour of jam in each crepe. The jams although a little bit sweet for my liking were pleasantly fruity. I tried the Cherry, Orange and Apricot varieties.

With these crepes, I served them with broken honeycomb pieces, honey and organic cream.

Hi Chelle! I sprout wheat all the time and make dem nice berries! Very cool recipe, they look so light and tender, not at all what sprouted wheat usually “implies!” gonna grab some berries and sprout so I can make these next week. Thanks for linking to the hearth and soul hop. Sending you lots of love! Alex

Do you use dehydrated whole sprouted wheat or moist whole sprouted wheat?

Hi Laura. I’ve used dried and moist whole sprouted wheat. Both work well. Let me know if you have any more Qs.

Hi!
I feel really lucky that I stumbled across this recipe! These crepes taste wonderful! If I ate them with my eyes closed, I would never guess they are from whole grain…
But I have a question. I can’t see all the wheat bran in your crepes… Mine were studded with bran, though it was soft and undetectable. But yours look all white… I’m confused!

Hi Natalie. Thanks for stopping by. When I made the crepes, I blended the mixture really well in the blender so the grains were mixed in and very fine when it was all mixed up. So maybe it was how you mixed it together? You can also try drying the grains really well and then grinding them up finely first and then mixing it to make the batter? Hope that helps and let me know how they go if you make them again.

Sure I will! My next take is going to be on rye grains.)
Yet, I guess the cause is in my blender… It’s maximum capacity is 550W. Maybe it’s not enough to make a smooth mixture?

Sounds good! Hmm could be. Another way you could do this is, once your grains are sprouted, you can soak the grains in milk (or butter milk or kefir) overnight that way the grains should be much soften when you blend the mixture together. This generally works pretty well with whole grains unsprouted too.

So, I sprouted rye grains and made the crepes. I soaked them overnight in milk, but crepe batter still had visible bran in it. I don’t mind, but looks like my blender can’t handle things as well as yours.))) And if you decide to make rye crepes, my suggestion is to add wheat sprouts as well or take more eggs, otherwise rye crepes are falling apart and hard to handle.

Hi Michelle, these look and sound lovely! Do you think that it would work as well with sprouted barley? I don’t have wheat grains at home right now for sprouting and am too impatient to wait to buy some so was wondering if I could use the barley I have…:)

Hi Caroline. Thankyou! Yes most definitely, sprouted barley would be wonderful! Let me know how you go! ~Michelle
