French crepes for breakkie!!!!

So today I felt like having something different from the usual breakfast of eggs! My friend Priyanka gave me oats atta the other day as she thought oats is not suiting her. Well, I decided to make some crepes out of it. Crepes are thin French pancakes, somewhat like our dosas but made of maida originally. I substituted maida with oats for a gluten free version. 
Well to be honest, i did put in one heaped table spoon of maida only coz I like the taste of maida, but if you want gluten free, maida free crepes, by all means go ahead and do it. 
I took almost one cup of oats atta and topped it off with a heaped spoon of maida. Then I added one teaspoon of baking powder and a pinch of salt. 
In a separate bowl I mixed one egg with one cup of milk. 
Then I mixed the dry and wet ingredients and put a small spoon of melted butter(optional) to make a smooth and runny batter. This batter is much thinner than cake batter. 
I greased a hot pan with olive oil and added one big ladle of the batter and picked up the pan and swirled the batter around to get a round omelette like shape. 
On medium heat it got cooked and then I flipped it to cook on the other side. 
Once done I flipped it back and put the heat on low and put some sautéed mushrooms and grated cheese before I folded it over just like a stuffed omelette. 
You can use any stuffing you like.....mushrooms, sautéed spinach, plain cheese or even anything sweet like bananas(top that with honey)
Once done serve them hot and eat them without delay!!!

Oats are healthy and high on fibre and the vegetables give you an added boost of fibre and vitamins.
