Place the balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer till thick and syrupy; about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.
Place the oats and flour in a food processor. Grind for 30-60 seconds or until a flour-like substance forms.
Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the milk, egg, tablespoon of honey, and salt. Whisk until smooth and incorporated.
Heat a small 6'' nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour about ¼ cup batter onto the pan. Carefully swirl the batter around the pan once to spread the batter out around the perimeter of the pan. Cook until the edges of the crepe come up easily with a spatula and the batter no longer looks wet in the center. This took about 90 seconds per crepe for me. Carefully loosen the crepe around the edges and then flip onto a baking sheet while you repeat the process to make additional crepes.
Stuff the crepes with 1 tablespoon goat cheese or ricotta, peach slices, drizzle of balsamic syrup, and freshly torn basil. Or stuff with whatever you like before rolling them up and eating!
For crepe success: Do not overheat your pan - crepes like a gentle heat. If you find medium-low is browning them too much, reduce heat to low. You shouldn't need any type of fat in the pan; crepes will slide right out of a good nonstick skillet. However, if you find them sticking, a drizzle of olive oil will work fine.
Store crepes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. You can also freeze with layers of wax paper between crepes for up to 3 months. Thaw the day of use in the refrigerator.
