My MIL makes incredible crepe dinners - many courses all stuffed into crepes. My husband grew up with this as a tradition. I would love to recreate this but I have one question - what HEALTHY pan option do I have? While you're at it, what type of bakeware do you recommend?

Thanks a bunch!


Yum! Can't wait to try this - I heart crepes.


I had the exact same question... I used to use only non-stick pans and have since realized how bad they are for you. I am using some stainless steel ones now but my omelettes get stuck (and burnt) so I doubt they'd work for crepes... You mentioned cast iron, does that work well???

Hi! Stopping by from MBC. Great blog.

Have a nice day!

Sara S.

I love this recipe -- and my kids love crepes because they get to personalize them. Sofia, they don't take fancy cookware. We use a well-seasoned cast iron pan.


As Sara said, a well seasoned cast iron pan does work for this. You can also get Teflon-free non-stick pans like Scan Pan, GreenPan and Cuisinart Green Gourmet. I have to admit that I used my trusty old non-stick griddle which I have not been able to find a decent replacement for. It's not scratched so the risks from using it are low although I really do want to replace it.
For bakeware I tend to use aluminum without the non-stick coating. A lot of people swear by silicone, but I have not tried it yet.


Thank you for giving me some non-stick options to look into... I admit that I've been at a loss and lacked the time to properly research. The cuisinart green line seems great! :)


I love the idea of mixing half whole wheat flour and half regular. Such a great way to make a favorite dessert healthier! I also like your comment on how you sometimes just stick in food that your kids will hate. It is so hard to cook to please them without taking away from some our your favorites. But have you tried cooking with your kids? A study run through Columbia University found that kids who cook are more likely to try new and healthy food!

That is why I work for Monday Campaigns a group partnered with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. My favorite health initiative that we run is our The Kids Cook Monday which encourages kids to cook and eat with their families every Monday! Please visit our website to see the many benefits of eating family meals together http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/.

We would love if you would write a blog for us on Monday about cooking your kids. Please email me if you are interested! [email protected]

I promise your kids will love it!

Thanks, Sara, for taking the time to answer my question! I do have a cast iron skillet - I guess I should just trust you & try it!
