These delicious Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat crepes are absolutely delicious. They rock a powerhouse stack of over 150 phytonutrients and more.


As a kid I used to dip into a French restaurant by my parents’ house and grab crepes on the fly. I fell in love with how sweet and savory they were.

Later I learned to make them myself, but nowadays with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat (HTB) onboard. That’s because Tartary, in case you haven’t heard, is an epic plant. Indigenous to Asia, it was developed here in the US by Dr. Jeffrey Bland after he and other scientists learned how nutrient-dense it is.

It rocks four bioactive compounds—rutin, quercetin, luteolin, and hesperidin—and a powerhouse free-radical scavenger that’s considered pretty rare (2-HOBA). It also packs vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, fiber, and immense prebiotics for your gut.

According to Dr. Bland, it’s “the most immuneoactive, nutrient-dense plant yet discovered.” It’s also a complete protein with all nine essential amino acids.  

You can learn more about it here. To get the nutrition flour I use in this recipe go here.

Crepes made with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat have a slightly thicker texture than those made with other flours. They also have a heavier concentration of phytonutrients.

I typically combine HTB with oat, almond, sorghum, millet, or bean flour. It has a rich earthy taste I’ve come to love.

Here’s what you’ll need (full recipe below):

How to Make a Chia Egg

To make one chia egg mix a tablespoon of ground or soaked whole organic chia seed with 3 tablespoons of filtered water, wait for 10 minutes, mix again, then use.

Vegan egg substitutes are widely available, but chia is healthiest. It’s a complete vegan protein with all nine essential amino acids. Full recipe here.

When making crepes, always let the batter sit for at least an hour before use or refrigerate overnight.

It’s also key to make a smooth silky blend without lumps.

For sweet crepes add some date sugar or stevia, vanilla or almond extract, and spice like pumpkin pie spice.
