I hate to start a post on a sad note, but I’ve been missing my mother lately. For those that don’t know me, my mother died of breast cancer when I was thirteen. One of my fondest memories of her was enjoying my very first crepe with her in paris. I got mine with nutella and she had hers with some grand mariner. Yes, this made her tipsy! She was a funny woman I tell ya.
Anyhow…..I thought about making my own crepe recipe minus the white flour. Heres what I used for a single sering
-about 1 tablespoon almond butter
-1/2 cup egg whites
1/8tsp baking powder
-splash of banana extract
-about 2 tsp cocoa powder
-1 tsp agave, splenda, stevia, or sweetener of choice (everyone is so picky about their sweetener)
beat with a mixer and put on a well greased pan. Wait for bubbles to form (about two min) and flip. Fill with cottage cheese, ricotta, mascarpone cheese, greek yogurt, or berries! I garnished with some toasted almonds and a strawberry. Of course, it would go great with some grand marnier as well!
