Quick, nutritious & delicious

Healthy for brekky, lunch, dinner or a snack. Besan flour (chick pea flour) crepes are a very easy option, ticking many nutritional boxes. It's quick, inexpensive and will satisfy our gluten free and plant-based friends.

Besan flour is made from chickpeas which this is typically a gluten flour product (and always check the packaging to be certain please allergy sufferers).

Here are some health benefits to consider:

  • Mineral rich in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese

  • High in Folate

  • Good source of protein

In this recipe I include nutritional yeast - a source of vitamin B complex as well as protein, minerals, antioxidants and other vitamins.

Besan Flour Crepes Recipe


  • 1/2 Cup Besan Flour

  • 1/2 Cup Water

  • 1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast

(Makes 4 medium size crepes. Depending on the topping you add, and how hungry you are, this may satisfy 1-2 people)


Whisk all ingredients, removing lumps. Add more water should you prefer a thinner consistency.

Ladle mixture onto a hot crepe maker or frying pan. If this is a surface that may stick, oil first. Cook one side then flip to cook the other.

I like mine rather thin and a bit crispy. Thicker crepes work well as a wrap. Get creative - roll up with filling, top with a sauce and create into a cannelloni style dish for instance.

Have a look at the pics above for some topping ideas.
