2-Ingredient Crepe

Really? Just 2?!Β YES, REALLY. And no, I’m not referring to “pancake mix and milk”. I’ve discovered possibly the easiest crepe recipe that you could make even with your eyes closed. (okay, maybe one eye closed) Best of all, not only is it high in protein, I bet that you would probably already have the 2 ingredients sitting in your kitchen. So now you really can’t give anymore excuses to not make crepes! πŸ˜€


Have I piqued your interest yet? Yes? Alright so here are the 2 secret ingredients…. (I don’t really consider water an ingredient)

2-Ingredient Crepe

makes 2 crepes
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  1. Preheat your pan to medium-low heat.
  2. Beat the eggs, mix in peanut butter and water. Whisk until you get a smooth consistency. I decided to dirty my electric mixer for this as it was a lot easier doing it with a mixer.
  3. Lightly oil your skillet and pour the batter.Β Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly. Cover and cook for about 3 minutes.
    (Personally I’m great at flipping pancakes but I have a fear of flipping crepes as they’re usually a lot bigger and also more fragile. So I prefer cooking them in lower heat for a longer time so that I don’t have to flip them!)
  4. Loosen with a spatula and slide the crepes out of the skillet.

Yeah! That’s it! Seriously. Not recommended for vegetarians though as it might have a little of the egg-y taste if not mixed well. You could also counter that by adding 1/4 tsp vanilla essence. But I like to keep this to 2 ingredients. πŸ™‚

You could serve this with maple syrup and the peanut butter in the crepe would already be sufficiently tasty.. But by now, you should know that I usually like to “dress” my desserts up, right? πŸ˜€

So I decided to turn it into…..

THIS

Yay! That looks much better. Since this crepe consist mainly of peanut butter, another idea would be to add jam into it. yum? But here’s what I used.

Peanut Butter Crepe with Fruits and White Chocolate Drizzle


  • 1 recipe 2-Ingredient Crepe
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 3-5 strawberries, sliced
  • 3 tbsp white chocolate chips, melted
  • maple syrup

Presto!!

This was just perfect for starting my day! And guess what? It’s gluten-free too! So I’mΒ submitting my post to Aspiring Bakers #21: Gluten-Free Bakes (July 2012)) hosted by Hankerie.

Alright folks. Until next time! Hope you enjoyed this simple recipe!

    Wow cool idea! But unfortunately this wouldn’t work for people who don’t like peanut butter… Is there a substitute? Would almond butter work?

  5. Sammie says:

    What?! Who wouldn’t like peanut butter? haha.. Just kidding. I know some people who don’t actually. But yeah! I think anything really thick / creamy should work. Texture of almond butter is almost the same as peanut butter. Experimentation is the key! haha..

  6. A L says:

  53. Carolyn Jung says:

    I can’t believe the base for this is basically just peanut butter that’s been thinned out. Who would have guessed you could make a gorgeous crepe like this out of that? I’m definitely going to try this. Ingenious!

  54. I’m all over this! So many different fillings can be put in these peanut butter crepes! Oh, can’t wait to try!

  55. Anything that ultimately has white chocolate on it goes down well in this house. I love the idea of peanut butter in the pancakes. Definitely one for the Glam Teens this summer vacation. GG

  56. All I can say is OMGggggggggggggggggg. Xx

  57. YUM, YUM, YUM! Who can say no to a 2-ingredients dish like this? πŸ™‚

  58. This is genius! Who knew peanut butter could be made into crepes like this!? This is crazy delicious looking!

  59. rsmacaalay says:

    Wow no flour! I never tried crepes like this and I guess I would love it because of that peanut butter. Yum!

  60. BC says:

    TWO INGREDIENTS? Don’t believe you πŸ˜›

  61. This looks insanely delicious! I love the white chocolate drizzle on top!

  62. Courtney says:
