Pour 3/4 cup of water into a blender, then pour in 1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour and blend until smooth. Be sure to pour the liquid in first so it doesn't stick to your blender.
Add 1 cup of vegan milk to the mixture with 3/4 cup of flour, 1/2 tsp salt, (and sugar and vanilla for the sweet recipe) then blend until you have a very smooth batter. You can use the batter immediately or place it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 48 hours until you're ready to make the crepes.
Let the batter rest for about 10 minutes before cooking the crepes
Set the heat to medium-low and allow your pan to warm up for about 2 minutes. Melt about 1/2 tsp of butter on the pan and then pour 1/3 cup of the crepe batter in a circular motion in the pan and immediately swirl the pan around until the batter is evenly covering the bottom of the pan.
Allow the crepe to cook for about 2-3 minutes until it appears dry, losses its shine, and the edges start to lift up from the side of the pan a little. Then loosen the edges completely with a spatula and quickly flip it over.
Cook the crepe for another 2 minutes on the other side until slightly golden and all of the crepe batter is fully cooked.
Stack on a plate until all of the crepes are finished and then serve with your choice of sweet or savory fillings.
Measure the ingredients carefully. Slight changes in measurements will change the thickness of the batter.
Your batter should be very thin and watery. If it is too thick add a small amount of water until it spreads out evenly by just swirling the pan. If it's too thin add a small amount of flour until the desired consistency is achieved.
Don't taste-test the batter and be sure to cook the batter completely. Garbanzo bean flour tastes terrible before it is fully cooked!
You want thin crepes, much thinner than a pancake. Only use 1/3 cup of the crepe batter and swirl it around until it takes up the whole pan.
It takes a little practice to make a perfect crepe. The first crepe may be a little difficult, but keep practicing and they will be the most delicious vegan crepes ever
