High Protein / Low Carb Crepes

Crepes... healthy? I'm sure you're thinking, "how can this be possible!" When I used to think of crepes all I could imagine was nutella and whipped cream. When I realized these tasty breakfast treats could be protein packed and nutritious I was sold! I now make them weekly. Remember to blend them for at least 20 seconds so the batter is smooth and thin.

 

This recipe makes 4 crepes and has 25 grams of protein and 4 grams of carbs per serving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of egg whites
  • ½ cup of low fat cottage cheese, completely drained of all liquid
  • ½ cup of coconut flour
  • ½ Tbsp Isopure chocolate protein powder
 

Filling:

  • 4 Tbsp raspberry jam (1 tbsp per crepe)

Directions:

Step 1: Add all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth

Step 2: Heat pan and coat with a generous amount of coconut oil

Step 3: Pour a small amount of the mixture into the pan and swirl around to form a thin layer

Step 4: Cook for 2 minutes

Step 5: Quickly flip and cook for another 2 minutes

Step 6: Slide crepe off the pan and onto a plate.

Step 7: Spread raspberry jam all over the crepe and roll into a tube.

 

Yours in health,
