Healthy Crepes

 Seriously, who doesn't love crepes!! Crepes for breakfast is a huge tradition on my husbands side of the family... Birthday's = crepes, Christmas = crepes, Special Occasion = crepes. My Mother-in-law makes them and these suckers are AMAZING.... The only problem is that an hour after I consume that little piece of heaven, I feel like CRAP (due to the sugar and flour)!! Sooooo, I thought i'd try to come up with a recipe that still tasted great and didn't leave me with a sugar crash, stomach ache, bloated, and the extra LB's!!! Hope you enjoy this low carb and gluten free treat... I know I do!!

Ingredients:
5 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup blanched almond flour
1/2 lemon, juice
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 or 2 TBS Just Like Sugar (OR your choice sweetener)- optional
Topping's of your choice


*If you don't want a sweet crepe, discard the sweetener.



Makes 6 crepes
~ Mix all ingredients together
~ Heat skillet over medium heat. spray with non-stick
~Pour just a little batter onto skillet and tilt skillet around so that it covers the whole bottom (should be a very very very thin layer)
~ Cook about 1-2 minutes or until you see top starting to dry out. Then carefully flip and cook for about 30 seconds.
~ Stuff, roll, and top with your choice of goodness!!

  3. This recipe looks great! The only problem is I have an allergy to nuts, so I can't use almond flour. What would you recommend as an alternative, that would still be healthy?

  4. Going to make these tonight but am wondering about the blanched almond flour. Will try with regular Red Mill almond flour and report back!
