Crepes are delicious thin pancakes that are popular in French cuisine. While Crepes are usually made with maida, here we have made it heart-friendly using oats and whole wheat flour.

The Oats and Spinach Crepes with Ratatouille Filling is also loaded with veggies that improve the taste and fibre content.

The white sauce too is not fat-laden but made with cauliflower, which gives the same creamy mouth feel and taste. Enjoy this delicious and healthy treat hot and fresh.

Totally healthy crepes ! Wheatflour and oats crepes taste just amazing. Can''t believe that maida is not used in the recipe and low fat food without cheese can taste so good. Power packed meal with lots of veggies.
