Cornmeal Crepes with Maple Blueberries

1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat pastry flour
3/4  cup (180 mL) yellow cornmeal
2 large free-range eggs, lightly beaten
1 3/4  cup (430 mL) low-fat milk or unflavoured milk alternative

1/4 cup (60 mL) sucanat or unprocessed sugar

2 Tbsp (30 mL) lemon zest
1/4 tsp (1 mL)  salt

3 cups (750 mL) blueberries
1/2 cup (125 mL)  maple syrup
3/4 tsp (4 mL) cinnamon

Blend together batter ingredients with whisk or in blender until smooth.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

In medium saucepan, bring blueberries, maple syrup, and cinnamon to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until blueberries begin to break  down.
