:: Wheat Crepes filled with Greek Yogurt ::
I know I have neglected the delish part of my blog and kind of feel guilty about it. Things are starting to get back to normal after the holidays (I finally put my Xmas tree away this past weekend lol) so now I can focus on trying new healthy recipes and sharing them with you.
I’ve been wanting to do crepes but I didn’t want just any crepe… I wanted a healthy recipe! Well, the quest wasn’t successful so I just modified an old recipe I had and was surprised with the results! I mean, these things are darn tasty! Well, at least to me.
If you’re looking to eat healthy and create recipes that taste the same as the “not so healthy ones”, then you’re in for a huge disappointment. You need to adjust your taste buds to more simple flavors and be okay with that. I rather eat simple foods these days since I know they’re good for me, than to shove my body with sugary & fatty foods.
The other day I had a White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks and I’m telling you, by the end of the cup I was almost ready to gag….. that thing was sooo sweet! I have no idea how I used to be addicted to those things. It also gave me a headache! I don’t think I’ll be having one of those in a while again.
Whole Wheat Crepes and Greek Yogurt
Makes 7 crepes.Ingredients:
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 packets of stevia or preferred no-calorie sweetner
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup almond milk (or use your preferred milk. However, the total calories for the crepes will change)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Butter-flavored cooking spray
- Mix dry ingredients in large bowl
- Stir in wet ingredients and mix until smooth
- Preheat pan on medium heat on stove
- For each crepe, lightly spray pan and pour 1/4 cup of batter into pan. Rotate pan so that crepe is thin and even. Flip once crepe is golden brown and cook other side until golden brown. About a minute for each side.
- Mix Non Fat Greek Yogurt (I use Voskos) with cinnamon and a packet of no-calorie sweetener. Add any kind of fruit you want: blueberries, bananas, strawberries, etc.
- Fill crepes with yogurt and fold like a burrito
The below macro-nutrients is for 3.5 crepes, 8 oz of VoskosGreek Yogurt plus 1/2 cup of blueberries. If you’re on a diet and need to eat smaller meals, just adjust the portions to fit your calorie needs.
