The Whole Grain Council says there are many benefits of including whole grains into your diet. Studies show that people who eat whole grains have a lower stroke risk. You may also lower your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and you may be able to maintain your weight better than those who do not eat whole grains.

There has also been recent studies that indicate whole grains might reduce the risk of becoming asthmatic, they may make your cartoid arteries and blood pressure levels healthier as well as reduce the risk of inflammatory disease, colorectal cancer as well as gum disease and tooth loss.

Those are some pretty great health benefits! Now let’s get to the Whole Grain Crepes recipe!

How to Make this Delicious Healthy Recipe

Ingredients Needed for Whole Grain Crepes

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 ½ cups of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter
  • Pinch of salt

Directions To Make This Healthy Recipe

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour and eggs.
  2. Gradually add in the milk and stir well.
  3. Add in the salt and butter, then beat until the batter is smooth.
  4. If it seems to be too thick, then you can add in some milk.
  5. Heat your frying pan for 15 minutes.
  6. Put either cooking spray, margarine or butter in the frying pain.
  7. Pour one large scoop of the mixture into the frying pan and tilt the pan in a circular motion so the batter coats the surface evenly.
  8. Cook for one minute.
  9. Turn and cook the other side.
  10. Fill the crepe with your favorite filling. I like blueberries or strawberries with mine!

Whole grains can easily be a healthy part of your daily diet and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which was released in January 2011, recommends adults eat at least 3 to 5 servings of whole grains each day. Children should be eating at least 2 to 3 servings daily. Canada’s Food Guide has similar recommendations.

Even with these guidelines, statistics show that Americans eat less than one daily serving of whole grains and over 40% never eat even one healthy recipe that includes whole grains.

Everyone wants to improve their health and reduce the risk of health complications and diseases in the future. Preparing wholesome foods may also help prevent childhood obesity.  A healthy recipe including whole grains is one of the easiest ways to do that. You can create a healthy recipe by simply replacing white flour with whole wheat flour. Easy and nutritious!
