Looking for some new healthy breakfast ideas that your whole family will love? These Protein Crepes should help you out! This easy crepe recipe is a great alternative to the real thing, takes just a few minutes to prep, and is packed with diet friendly macros.
Start this one by taking out either a blend or food processor and turning 1/2 cup of rolled oats into oat flour by simply blending or processing it until it looks like flour. If you don’t have either, here’s the food processor I’ve been using lately.
Add your homemade oat flour into a large mixing bowl followed by 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder, 1/2 cup of fat free cottage cheese or Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 ripe banana, and 4 large egg whites or 3/4 cup of liquid egg whites.
Pro tip? Change up the flavor of your protein crepes by using other flavors for your protein powder!
Mix all of those ingredients together until your protein crepes mix is smooth. I like using a hand mixer to do this but a whisk will work just as good with a little effort!
Did you know that flaxseed meal is a great cheap source of healthy fats, fiber, and protein?
Take out a stovetop pan or griddle, turn your burner on low-medium heat, and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray.
Once whatever you’re using heats up add some of your mix into it. Less mix will make a thinner crepe and more mix will make a thicker crepe (more like a pancake).
Cook your protein crepes for around 2-3 minutes a side depending on how big you made them. I made 5 protein crepes today.
Remove your crepes from the heat and optionally top them! Some of my favorites?
