  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

  • 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.
