Do you ever have days where you just want to stuff your pancake with fluff?
(LOL, that sounded kinda dirty. What can I say? Food is sexy!)
I am constantly impressed by what protein powder can do. Don't try to limit this powerhouse with shakes and smoothies, cuz it can do so much more! Cookies, waffles, pancakes, and now... CREPES! That's right. We're gonna use protein powder to make the lingerie of the flapjack family tree. Thin, lacey, sexy crepes.
What you need:
6 egg whites (I use Abbotsford Farm cage free)
1 scoop low/zero carb vanilla protein powder (today I'm using my chocolate. Cuz what's sexier than chocolate?)
1/2c Fage Total full fat Greek yogurt
1/2c Fresh berries
To bowl, pour egg whites and protein powder.
Whisk into frenzied fluffy frothiness.
In pan, warm a couple tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil and coat well.
Pour eggy protein mixture into pan in thin layer (your batter will make a couple of crepes, so don't sweat having a lot leftover).
Watch it closely. The bottom is going to cook super fast. When edges start to curl, flip it over. Turn off the heat. Cook for another minute or two. Plate.
In the middle of your newly minted crepe, scoop 1/2c Greek yogurt (or use my Sludge recipe, mascarpone/creme fraiche, or cottage cheese). Top with fresh berries.
I think I just food-gasm'ed.
