In case you hadn’t noticed, I have a slight obsession with breakfast foods.
In fact, the majority of the recipes on the site are fairly breakfast-y, or at least could be eaten as part of a well balanced breakfast. That’s partly because I have a huge sweet tooth, but also because the time when I crave sweet stuff the most is in the morning and the evening.
The rest of the day I pretty much want savory, high protein, veggie-filled foods, but those times of the day are when I just want all the sugary foods in the world.
So rather than eating actual tons of calorie dense, low nutrient, high sugar foods around these times, I’ve learned how to make my own sweet-yet-healthy substitutes.
These protein crepes are AWESOME for when you want a super low carb breakfast, or when you want something filling, satisfying, yet still sweet at night (my favorite time to eat them). They’re super easy to make, and require only a few basic ingredients. Plus, you can fill them with anything you like to make them extra delicious!
Here’s your simple three ingredient protein crepe recipe:
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (either whey or whey/casien/egg white blend)
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Total prep time: 10-15 minutes
Blend the protein powder, egg whites, vanilla extract, and cinnamon together. Heat a nonstick pan to medium heat and add a little coconut oil as it’s heating up (only necessary if your non-stick pan really actually sticks). Pour half of the batter onto the pan, then pick up the pan to spread the batter around in order to get a thinner crepe.
Once the batter start forming small bubbles on top, flip it and cook the other side till golden. Remove and set on a plate, then repeat with the other half of the batter.
Once both crepes are fully cooked, fold them in half then add cottage cheese, berries, cinnamon, nut butter, or whatever you want inside. Super high protein, low carb, low fat, filling, and sweet tooth satisfying!
