Serves: 4Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 10 minutesDifficulty: Medium

Serves: 4


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1⁄2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup white spelt flour
  • 1⁄4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 4 lemon slices


  • In a medium bowl, whisk egg and milk together well. Add remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a nonstick crepe pan or frying pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and pour just enough batter onto the pan to coat the bottom with a thin layer as you quickly lift it and rotate it.
  • The crepe is ready to be flipped when tiny bubbles form on the top and the edges begin to brown and lift. Carefully flip the crepe with a spatula and cook the second side. Remove from heat. Repeat with remaining batter. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with a slice of lemon.
