A lot of people have been trying to live healthier, especially for the past year or so.

With our health constantly challenged to be stronger and tougher than any virus around us, the best way to counter it is to switch to a healthier lifestyle.

One way to do so is substituting food you love for healthier alternatives.

Most often, people substitute dairy, fat, carbohydrates, and sugar for something healthier. For example, they cook riced cauliflower instead of white rice, Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and fruits over chocolates for dessert.

There’s a plethora of choices and substitutions you can make for a healthier lifestyle.

Here’s one recipe that some have tried to make to replace a good old crepe. But instead of using all that flour, milk, and butter, you make them with spinach and rolled oats.

Yes, you got that right. You can make some crepe batter out of spinach.

It is mainly made up of water but packed with vitamins and minerals. This crepe recipe works just like the ordinary crepe recipe because of the rolled oats that you mix it with.

Rolled oats are starchy, so it creates the consistency of any batter made with flour.

Heat a wide, shallow pan and grease it with butter. Pour enough batter and spread it around the pan by circling it until it covers the entire area. Make sure that it is just thin enough, like a crepe.

Once the batter is cooked, sprinkle some cheese on top.

You can use mozzarella cheese for this recipe. Others used feta or Havarti cheeses. Sprinkle the cheese on one-half of the crepe only so it won’t get too messy later.

Fold the other half of the crepe over, covering the cheesy part.

Give it a little tap and cook it for a few more minutes or until the cheese has started to melt. Once done, place it on a plate and cool down for a bit.
