The Best Protein Crepes
Sick of protein shakes? Try this simple, high protein crepes recipe. It is delicious, nutritious, and uses only 4 ingredients: protein powder, eggs, milk, and coconut oil. These crepes are sweet, as opposed to savory, and I often eat them with almond butter and banana. They make for a filling breakfast and keep me full until lunch.
The best thing about this recipe is that it is extremely easy to make. In just 10 minutes, you can make yourself a protein-packed, low-carb meal worth of a French café. If you are cooking for company, simply double or triple the recipe. A word to the wise: eat these crepes immediately. If you let them sit for too long, they lose their delightful sponginess.
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard crepes are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is how to make high protein, low carb crepes with protein powder.
-1/2 cup drink wholesome vanilla protein powder
-6 tbsp dairy-free milk
-1 tbsp coconut oil (optional, but recommended)
Spray a non-stick pan with cooking-spray and place it over medium heat. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and whisk until smooth. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into the pan and swirl it until the batter spreads evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the underside of the crepe is golden brown. Use a rubber spatula to carefully flip the crepe and cook it for another 1-2 minutes. Pair these crepes with toppings like nut butter, fruit, and, of course, maple syrup.
