Our weekend breakfasts usually include sourdough pancakes, waffles, muffins, bacon, sausage, biscuits, or eggs. But sometimes I want something that can be whipped up a bit faster and is still filling and healthy for my family.
I also find that I lose interest in scrambles eggs. The texture and flavor begin to weird me out after too many. I’m not sure why.
I don’t want to nix the eggs for the bread items or potatoes, so I went looking for other ways to incorporate eggs into my breakfast.
Sourdough Peanut Butter Crepes are just that! They are packed with protein since they are mostly just eggs, and full of good nutrients thanks to the sourdough! You can find more details about the health benefits of sourdough here.
Not only are they healthy, but they taste wonderful too! The incorporation of peanut butter and honey is just the right touch. Add bananas, strawberries, cream cheese, chocolate chips, blueberries, or another topping of your choice for a nearly perfect breakfast!
This recipe is so simple, quick, and easy to make. It takes me 15 minutes from start to finish. I’d say thats pretty good for as healthy as they are.

How to Make Sourdough Peanut Butter Crepes
What You’ll Need
- Large mixing bowl
- Measuring cups and spoons
- Cast iron skillet
- Whisk or electric mixer
- 1 cup of fed sourdough starter
- 7 eggs
- 3/4 tsp. of vanilla
- 2 TBS of honey
- 1/4 cup. of peanut butter (creamy)
- Toppings: cream cheese, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, maple syrup, chocolate chips, etc.
- Preheat a cast iron skillet on medium heat.
- Use the whisk attachment or an regular whisk to blend the eggs together.
- Mix in the honey, vanilla, and peanut butter. If your honey is in a solid state you’ll need to warm it on the stovetop.
- Melt a little butter on the cast iron skillet.
- Pour about 1/2 cup of the batter onto the middle of the skillet. Swirl the batter in the pan to coat it evenly.
- Look for small bubbles to appear on the surface of the crepe. This is when it’s time to flip.
- Use a large spatula to flip the crepe.
- Allow to cook on that side for a few minutes until lightly browned.
- Add your preferred toppings while the crepe is still warm and roll it up. Serve warm.
Keep in Mind:
- They will stick to the cast iron skillet if it is cold, so warming it up before hand is important!
- For best results, only pour a thin amount of batter on the skillet and spread it evenly with a spatula. This will also help prevent the crepe from sticking.

How Do I Keep Them Warm While I’m Cooking The Others?
Heat the oven to 200 degrees, place a baking dish inside, add cooked crepes to the dish, and cover with a lid each time. This will keep them all warm until you’re ready to serve them!
My Crepes Keep Breaking!
Allow the crepe to cook fully before flipping it. I’ve found that under-cooked crepes almost always break when I attempt to flip them, but cooked ones do not.
Thin crepes do not break as easily either, so avoid adding too much batter to your skillet.
