Okay so the first time I tried crepes, I didn't like them. Why? They served them plain with no sauce or fruit! That's like serving PB & J without the PB & J!! So when I went to Mexico and saw the had a crepe booth, I was a bit skeptical of how they would taste. But oh my lord, these were amazing! They had a warm chocolatey filling served atop a sweet strawberry sauce with chopped bananas, strawberries & powdered sugar on top of the crepe itself. Word's cannot describe how amazing these were. When I got back I forgot about my amazing crepes for awhile..that is until this morning when I had this crazy craving for crepes! Knowing I could not deny this craving, I created my own version of those memorable crepes. The result?? They are awesome! The filling is sweet and delicious, I could just eat it off a spoon! & The chocolate Sauce? OMG heaven. The crepe was done french toast style so it's light cinnamon sugar flavour just adds to the awesomeness of this dish.
-1 multigrain Flat Out Wrap (these are great, high fibre, high protein, low-fat)
-1/3 cup egg whites
-1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1 tbsp homemade SF Chocolate Syrup.
-3/4 cup frozen strawberries(110g)
-1/3 a ripe banana mashed
-1 tsp sweetener of choice(I used splenda)
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-1/8 tsp salt
-1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon(depending on how much you like!)
-1/2 tsp Truvia(or another sweetener to taste)
-Olive oil or Cooking Spray
Directions: Heat a large pan over medium-low heat. Spray generously with cooking oil(up the sides as well). In a large flat bowl, combine egg whites, almond milk, vanilla, salt, truvia and cinnamon with a fork. Meanwhile place the frozen strawberries in a small microwavable bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes or until they are easy to mash. Stir in your banana and sweetener and sweeten to your liking. Microwave for another 20 seconds until hot. Now dredge your flatout wrap in the egg white mixture on both sides until well coated. You may have some extra batter that you can use up in my French Toast egg whites recipe! Now place the wrap in the hot pan and cook until browned on one side. Flip and cook for a bit on the other side. Now place half of your filling over one side of the wrap and fold. Cook for a few more minutes then take off the heat, top with extra strawberry-banana sauce and a dollop of chocolate sauce. Sprinkle some extra cinnamon and eat up! :). Enjoy!
