Earlier this week, I decided to experiment with my existing Protein Pancake recipe to see if there was an even easier way to make them. (Currently, you have to whip the egg whites before incorporating the rest of the ingredients in order to create that classic, thick & fluffy texture of traditional pancakes.) But sometimes, it’s just not as easy to whip together when you’re running around doing a million other things. And that morning, I wanted easy. I’m talking, “throw-everything-into-a-blender-and-pulse” easy.
So, I tested my idea by doing just that.
I threw all of the ingredients into a blender and found that the results ended in a much thinner batter - not so “pancake friendly”, but perfect for crepes. And that’s how this recipe was born.
Let me tell you - this is the easiest recipe to whip together in a pinch, and because the high heat and thin batter takes mere seconds to cook on the pan, it’s also the easiest recipe to cook, too! With only 374 calories and 38g of protein for the ENTIRE PLATE, this is a recipe you’ll want to make for breakfast, lunch, dinner & dessert!
Since then, I’ve already tried a variety of sweet and savoury topping options - from blueberries & maple syrup to PB&J to cream cheese - and I’ve gotta say, these bad boys are delicious no matter how you make ‘em. You’re really gonna love this one!
I N G R E D I E N T S:
3/4 c. egg whites
1/4 c. 0% plain Greek yogurt
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
D I R E C T I O N S:
Throw all ingredients into a blender and pulse. (About 1 min)
Heat a medium frying pan with nonstick spray at about medium-high heat.
Pour a circle of batter onto your pan (the amount all depends on the size of your pan - so, it’s a bit of trial and error at first) and rotate your pan to allow the batter to spread to the edges in a neat circle.
Continue to rotate until all batter has touched the edges of the pan and starts to bubble at the top.
Allow a couple more seconds for the batter to bubble, then use a spatula to help flip the crepe.
Cook for a couple seconds on the other side, then place on a clean plate.
Repeat with the rest of the batter.
Serve warm with your favourite toppings!
