I am working on fooling myself.
I’m trying to convince myself that I can eat all my regular favorites… with just a little twist to make them healthy.
So far it’s
(I’m not going to lie when I say I still have a mad craving for chocolate. And homemade white bread.)
Anyhow, when I saw this east recipe at Sweet Samsations for a 2-ingredient crepe, made with peanut butter, I had to give it a try.
(I love me some crepes.)
Protein Breakfast Crepes, adapted very slightly from Sweet Samsations
2 eggs, well beaten
3 T peanut butter
3 T water
a pinch of salt
Preheat small skillet at medium low.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth (this took quite a while, but be patient, it will happen.)
Lightly grease pan. Pour batter in, twisting your pan in a circular motion to cover evenly.
Cover and let cook for about 2 minutes. Loosen edges with spatula and flip. Cover and cook for an additional minute.
Remove from pan and serve.
I have to admit, I was a little worried about this one… especially since I knew I wasn’t going to cover it up with a ton of delicious goodies. But really, they’re pretty darn good. I ate mine with fresh sliced banana (pb & banana are one of my (current) favorite flavor combinations).
I also had a small taste of the boys’ versions: one with 100% pure maple syrup – reminding me of a maple-bar flavor, and one with homemade strawberry jam – giving it a pb&j flavor. All three were quite delicious.
(Also just think of how great they’d be slathered in Nutella!)
A perfect way to start the day.
