I’ve had some feedback on the other crepe recipe that I posted a while back. Mostly good, but some people thought that they were a little too hardcore. I’ll admit, that they were not as delicate as a traditional crepe, but I was trying to maximize the nutritional value while pretty much destroying the fat content.
So, after much thought, I decided to come up with an alternative recipe that would soothe the need for a more “delicate” crepe that could be eaten by itself or filled with whatever you like and STILL be very healthy, with a little more fat (still from healthy sources) that would appease even the most finnicky eater.
Time for another video recipe. This time we’re gonna make high protein banana crepes. I really like pancakes and crepes, but unfortunately they’re usually very high in carbs and fat so they’re more of a cheat meal than regular, everyday fare.
Well, here’s my take on crepes. These are so healthy, that you can eat them every day if you like. This batch makes approximately 6 – 8″ crepes. Each crepe has 14 grams of protein, 6.5 grams of carbohydrates and less than 1 gram of fat!
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt
1/2 cup banana whey protein powder
8 – egg whites (or 1 cup of Egg Beaters egg whites)
1 – tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Put all the ingredients into the blender and pulse until mixed. It will be a soupy batter, not stiff. Get your skillet pretty hot, then spray with non stick spray and turn the heat down to medium. Pour just enough batter so that when you swirl the skillet around it just covers the surface. When the edges start to dry a little and you see bubbles in the middle, it’s time to flip it. Be careful as they are delicate! Once flipped, you’ll have to be quick as these things cook REALLY FAST!
You may need to respray after two or three crepes to keep them from sticking. Once they’re done, you can eat them a few different ways. You can just roll them up and munch on them plain, or you can fill them with either diced fruit, whipped topping, peanut butter, or even the avocado chocolate pudding we made last week! That’s how I like them.
OK, that’s it for now. I hope you enjoy them. Let me know how they turn out!
