Apple Crepes

Apple Crepes are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a snack. Made with white whole wheat flour, these crepes are nutritious and light.  I used eggs in my batter but you can also use egg substitute to watch your cholesterol. These are great for the sweet tooth but natural and low fat.

Ingredients

1 cup Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour
Dash of salt
3/4 cup egg substitute, or 3 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1 cup skim milk
1 tablespoon non fat vegetable oil spray (for batter)
Non fat vegetable oil spray (for pan)
4 medium apples
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Preparation

  • In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt. Add egg substitute (or eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition).
  • Gradually stir in water, milk and vegetable spray. Mix well. Cover bowl and let stand at room temperature at least 1 hour but not more than 2 hours (flour will expand and thicken batter).
  • Remove skin from apples and cut into small chunks.
  • Spray skillet with vegetable oil spray and heat on medium high heat. Add apples and cinnamon.  Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 5 minutes or until apples are tender.
  • Heat up crepe maker.  Spray with vegetable oil spray.
  • Pour crepe batter into a shallow plate or pie dish with the depth of at least 3/4 inch.
  • Dip crepe maker into batter. Cook till edges are golden brown.
  • Remove crepe with spatula or tongs. Place on plate browned side down. Repeat till all crepes are made.
  • Fill each crepe with cooked apples and drizzle honey over apples. Roll and serve.

Makes 10 crepes.

Other ideas: (1) Serve with a scoop of low fat and/or low sugar vanilla ice cream for dessert.  (2) Instead of apples, fill crepes with strawberries and low fat whipped cream.
