We LOVE crepes at out house! We eat them for breakfast, snacks and even dinner! This is my healthier version of the crepes and my kids and husband couldn’t tell a difference.
2/3 cup ground wheat flour (I buy mine in the bag instead of grinding it myself)
1/3 cup white four
4 egg whites
1/2 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp of salt
2 Tablespoons of melted butter
Heat frying pan on medium heat.
Whisk flour, eggs, water and milk together in a large mixing bowl. Add salt and butter. Continue mixing until most of the lumps have disappeared (because of the whole wheat flour, it will be a little harder to mix out all the lumps).
Spray a small amount of non-stick cooking spray onto pan. Next drop 1/4 cup of mixture onto the heated pan. Right after mixture is poured on, pick up the pan quickly and tilt in a circular motion. You want the mixture as thin as possible and to cover the whole pan. Cook for 2 minutes on the first side – flip – then 1 minute on the second side.
Ingredients for the filling:
Fat Free or low-fat Yogurt (we used Vanilla)
Add as much or as little filling as you want!
Then sprinkle the top with powdered sugar (optional)
WAIT!!! One more thing! I’m going to start a Healthy Tip for the week every Monday. So for this week:
When I first got married I ate as much as my husband… which was A LOT! We ate pretty healthy but I still gained the “freshly married 15lbs” and I felt horrible. I got pregnant soon after and like some of you had some weight to lose after the baby. I read an article about eating on a small plate and not going back for seconds. I laughed at first thinking… ya right….but I tried it. I’ll be honest, it was really hard at first, but I started to tell a difference. Being 5 foot 3 – I didn’t need to eat as much as my 6 foot husband. I just had to learn not to eat so much and using a small plate definitely helped!
I have now learned how much my body needs and I know how important it is to fill it full of good food. I hope my healthy meals have been helping! Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE my treats (especially frosting) but eating them in moderation can make a huge difference! Happy Healthy Eating!
