Fruit filled crepes were one of my favorite breakfasts to enjoy with my dad growing up...he loved to cook and get all of his children involved in the process, and even though some mornings we wouldn't eat breakfast until it was nearly lunch, it was always worth the wait! ❤️
This is my healthy take on his dish, using low-fat plain yogurt and maple syrup for the creamy base (he used sour cream and brown sugar). For the crepe, I used a Flatout ProteinUp wrap (I am in love with these things!!), a yummy alternative that doesn't require the delicate hand and careful flipping of a fragile traditional crepe. It's also a great time saver! I hope you will enjoy this recipe, it can be a nice treat for the weekend or even during the week, it's that easy to make! 🤗
You will need:
For the Filling
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt (I used Stonyfield Organic)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp almond extract
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
3/4 cup fresh mixed berries (I had blueberries raspberries and blackberries on hand)🍓
For the "Crepe"
1 Flatout ProteinUp "light" original wrap
1 tbsp egg whites 🍳
Spray of canola oil
Slivered almonds (optional) lightly toasted in a small skillet
Putting it all together:
First, mix all the filling ingredients together except the berries and set aside. Rinse your berries and place onto a paper towel to dry while you make the "crepe". If using almonds, using a small skillet on low, toast the nuts lightly; set aside. Next, combine the egg whites with a dash of cinnamon and brush onto one side of the wrap with a basting brush.
Lightly spray a preheated (medium-low heat) nonstick skillet with the canola oil, then place the wrap egg white side down, allowing to cook for about 2 minutes. Remove the wrap to a plate, then spread about 1/2 of the yogurt filling on one side of the wrap. Sprinkle with all but 1/4 cup of the berries...now roll! Top the "crepe" with the remaining filling, berries and the toasted almonds. Prepare to enjoy a filling, delicious AND healthy breakfast! 🤗
