Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup 100% whole wheat flour
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • 1 organic egg, whisked
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons organic cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted organic butter
  • 1.5 cups part-skim organic ricotta cheese

Directions:

  1. Whisk together flour and salt.  Whisk in egg and enough warm water to form thin pancake-batter like consistency.  Do not over-mix . Set aside for at least 15 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, combine berries, lemon juice, lemon zest, raw sugar, and vanilla in a small pot.  Simmer until blueberries start to burst but are still intact.  Whisk in cornstarch with one tablespoon cold water.  Add into blueberry mixture, bring to a boil, and then simmer for 1 minute until thick.  Set aside.
  3. Heat one teaspoon of butter in skillet.  Add about 1/3 cup of crepe batter, swirl around off heat, and then cook on both sides over medium heat until browned and cooked.  Repeat for rest of crepes.  Fill with 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese, fold over, and then top with blueberry compote.  Enjoy!
