Oven baked gluten-free vegan savory spinach crepes is based on my healthy blender blueberry pie pancake recipe. When cooking gluten-free vegan pancakes in a pan, the pancake batter can be tricky to handle. So to make cooking easier, I created this oven baked version. I’m calling these pancakes crepes, because these are perfectly thin – just like crepes should be 🙂
What I love about this recipe the most is that I can add any greens: spinach, kale, fresh herbs, even stinging nettle to the batter. You can also use the stems of herbs, and any slightly wilted greens, because they will all be blended smooth.
You can adjust the spices to your liking. My kids prefer a plain salt & pepper version, whereas I’m loving this more seasoned one. This idea is from my Instagram friend Alex @chocolateandavocados who shares delicious wholesome vegan and gluten-free meal ideas on her page. A while ago she made my kale pancakes with additional spices and I loved them ♥
I like to eat these crepes warm with just tomatoes or a tomato salsa type of side dish, and a coconut yogurt sauce like the one in my buddha bowl recipe.
These spinach crepes are great for either breakfast or lunch!
