Peaches n’ Crème Sunday Crepes

Crepes are usually not thought of as a healthy food choice, but you can still have them once in a while. I’ve developed this crepe recipe that requires minimum of un-healthy ingredients and still packs a lot of nutrition. Having these crepes once a week, on your cheat day (that’s why I call them “Sunday crepes”) is perfectly fine and will not ruin your diet or make you fat. Just don’t eat more than 3-4 crepes.

Ingredients

(makes 12-14 crepes)

2 eggs
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
¼  teaspoon salt
1 cup skim milk
1 cup water
1 ½ cups self-raising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons sunflower-seed oil
Greek-style yogurt (to serve with)
Banana, peach, berries if available (to serve with)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and salt
  2. Add in the milk and water, mix well
  3. Using a fine sieve add in the self-raising flour bit by bit and keep mixing with a wire beater, or use an electrical beater, until all the clumps are dissolved
  4. Add in vanilla extract and the oil, and mix it well. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes
  5. Heat a large non-stick pan and using a scooper put the mixture onto the pan in circular motion until the entire pan surface is thinly covered. You can use a bit of non-stick spray like Pam if crepes stick to the pan.
  6. Cook the crepes on medium-high heat turning over with a spatula once, 1-2 minutes per side, or until golden brown
  7. Serve with Greek-style yogurt (or light sour cream), Bananas, Peaches (use canned if don’t have fresh), or any other fresh fruit or berries of your choice. Put slices of fruit on the crepe, top with yogurt and wrap it like a fajita.
