1 T sweetness of your choice
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 cup water

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

In blender combine arrowroot, sugar substitute, salt, eggs, milk and vanilla. Blend at high speed for a few seconds. Turn off machine, scrape down the sides of the jar and blend again for about 30 seconds. Cover tightly and let batter rest at room temperature for at least 1 hour before using.
Using an 8 inch crepe pan over high heat, lightly grease bottom and sides of heated pan with melted butter (clarified butter is best).
Stir batter lightly with wire whisk or spoon and pour less than 1/4 cup batter into pan, tipping the pan from side to side so that the batter quickly covers the bottom; then flip and do other side (the whole process takes less than 1 minute.
