  • Lightly coat a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet. Tilt the pan in a circular motion to allow the batter to spread to the edges. Cook until the bottom is light brown, about 2 minutes. Flip the crepe and place 2 tablespoons of the mixed berries in the center of the crepe; cook another 2 minutes. Fold the crepe in half and remove with a spatula to a serving plate. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve.

These were fantastic! I wanted to make them lower fat so I tried using apple sauce instead of the oil and it turned out great! The texture was perfect for crepes and this was surprisingly yummy considering the whole wheat flour. I added the berries while the crepe was in the pan as suggested then I took the crepe out and added fat free rasperry yogourt. Definately a guilt free indulgence!!! Read More

It does not taste at all like crepe. It tastes very "egg-whitish" and looks egg-whitish". Very disappointed in this recipe. Read More

These are so so so good. And you totally don't need the oil. Substitute oil with 2 tsp unsweetened applesauce and this is a truly a 100% healthy recipe. Very impressed here. Mine made exactly 5 1/4 cup crepes at 62 calories each! Read More

I made these last night and they were so easy and very yummy! I put in about a tablespoon of chocolate chips with the the mixed berries in the middle, and then topped the crepe with some reserved juice from the thawed-out berries. VERY GOOD! Also, I didn't use whole-wheat flour, as I didn't have any on hand, but all-purpose flour worked just fine. Read More

Using 1 whole egg 3 egg whites 1/4 cup whole wheat flour a pich of baking soda cinnamon and no oil works better and is healthier (calorie and grams fat wise) plus I think it tates better but letting it set for a couple hours makes any doughy-floury taste go away but add the soda just before you cook.

I have 2 leftover egg whites and this recipe was just right for it. Other recipes use whole eggs or egg yolks but never just egg whites. Using whole wheat flour skim milk and no sugar this is a healthy desert for me. I use banana and a little melted chocolate for the filling though. Next time I'll try to follow the recipe to the T.

These were great! I used blueberries and strawberries as the filling. I used small pinches of sugar here and there because the crepes themselves were not sweet at all. I also used applesauce in place of oil and it worked the same. I added 1 tsp vanilla to the batter as well.I reduced the berries in a sauce pan with a tsp of sugar and poured a-top the crepe! Will surley make this again but I'm thinking cinamon apples or banannas and chocolate chips next time! Read More

Wow. This recipe is incredible and so easy! Just ate them for breakfast with fresh mixed berries instead of frozen. I added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp sugar. I will make these all the time. Read More

Absolutely delicious! I made these for a Saturday breakfast and was a fantastic hit. Instead of filling the crepe with mixed berries I filled it with melted chocolate sliced almonds and sliced bananas. I also took other reviewers advice and used applesauce instead of vegetable oil. I found the ratio of flour and milk to result in thicker than expected batter so I added about two tablespoons more milk. Not only did the crepes come out thinner but made it easer to spread the batter in the pan. Also I found that a dash of cinnamon and half a tablespoon of vanilla extract really adds a nice flavor to the crepe. The last alteration I made was cooking the batter in coconut oil instead of using the recommended cooking spray. It s healthier and tastier! I decorated the crepes with powdered sugar and served them with vanilla yogurt sliced strawberries and blackberries. Read More

I made this recipe to use up some frozen fruit and whole wheat flour I had on hand. They were very tasty and easy to make. Take this hint for making the crepes - do not attempt to flip the crepes until they look almost done on top. I doubled the fruit for this recipe and let it sit with a little sugar on top before using. Topped it with whipped cream and these were delicious! Read More
