Recipe story

Cooking crepes is so much fun. Unlike stackable pancakes that are even more fun, crepes offer the versatility of serving them with sweet or salty ingredients and toppings (or both at the same time). You can toss some chicken and veggies in crepes, eat them plain with just some cinnamon sprinkled on top, or load them up with bananas, berry glazes, Greek yogurts, and so many other foods. I absolutely love cooking these because these crepes only take a few minutes to prepare (literally combining like 2 and a half ingredients) and within minutes, the first crispy crepe is done and ready to be served. They go great with a morning coffee or a tea and it’s just an amazingly simple recipe that has so much to offer. Food is only as boring as humans make it to be and I truly believe that. The batch you see on the picture has a crepe loaded with mashed banana, one with chocolate chips, and the last one with 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter spread on the inside and on top of the crepe. I just sprinkled some cinnamon on top, brewed some Lavazza dark roast coffee and Oh Mama, I just got me a healthy morning that’s hard to beat. PS: It’s best enjoyed when shared with others.

Ingredients

40-50g of whole wheat flour
1 scoop of protein powder (vanilla preferably)
1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 and 1/2 cup of soy/vanilla milk
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Toppings of your choice - I used 2 bananas, 1 tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 tbs of chocolate chips

Instructions

**Depending on size, makes approximately 7-10 crepes**

Step 1 – separate dry and wet ingredients, in one container, place 40-50g of flour and optionally add one scoop of protein powder, in a separate bowl, pour soy/almond milk, crack a whole egg and two egg whites, and add vanilla extract Step 2 – with a hand whisk or a mixer, combine/mix together the wet ingredients for about 45-60 seconds and then slowly pour over flour in 2-3 separate times, combine thoroughly (if too many clusters of dough, either use a mixer or whisk for another 30-45 seconds) Step 3 – grease a frying pan with a non-stick cooking spray and pour mixture into desired shapes (I like to create about 6 inches wide crepes – fairly thin), cook first side for 1-2 minutes and 30-45 seconds after flipping Step 4 – top with your choice of fruits, nut butter, or dark chocolate pieces
