Instructions Checklist

  • Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the butter has stopped foaming, reduce heat to medium-low, and pour in several tablespoons of the batter. Swirl to coat the bottom of the skillet. Allow to cook until set, about 4 minutes on the first side; flip the crepe with a spatula and cook the other side until the crepe shows small browned spots, 1 to 2 more minutes.

AWESOME! I don't usually go back and review but I had to for this recipe. I made the recipe for 1 serving so just halfed the ingredients, but I used fat free cream cheese, egg substitute, and added some splenda. I got 3 great size pancakes out of it, and I added mini chocolate chips to one, banana to another, and blueberries to the 3rd. YUMMY. All for 125 calories!! Thanks so much for the recipe idea. I can't wait to make it again!! Read More

This was a welcome relief from having eggs and bacon for breakfast on my low carb diet. I inadvertently poured all the egg into the cream cheese but using a whisk took care of the lumps. I do agree with another reviewer though and really like the lumps in the mixture (nothing like having a nice bite of cream cheese in this lovely recipe). I held the butter (used Pam in the frying pan). Then used the butter for topping and some Splenda instead of a sugar-free syrup since I didn't have any in the house. Tasted like french toast with the Splenda added. Great alternative to bacon and eggs, thank you! ********Edited to add that I made this again but made one large crepe, covered the pan so it would cook through on med heat. When done, I added 1/2 cup of fresh crushed blueberries mixed with some Splenda and rolled it into a crepe and topped it with sugar free cool whip. A great low carb Blueberry Crepe dessert! Any low carb fresh berry would work for filing, strawberries, blackberries, etc. What a wonderful treat to have. ..................Also last night I was looking to make something a tad different and used 2 tablespoons of sugar free Orange Marmalade (sweetened with Splenda). When the crepe was halfway through cooking, I dropped the marmalade on top. As it heats, it does spread some. Rolled it up, dotted with the butter and topped with sugar free Cool Whip, a nice change of pace with a nice light taste. Read More

Wow, just got done eating them and they tasted wonderful! I didn't have time to wait for the cream cheese to soften which did give me some lumps but I kind of like seeing the lumps of cream cheese in my pancake crepe. I used an electric hand mixer to mix all ingredients and it worked great! With low carbing I get sick of eggs and typical egg breakfast dishes so I was really excited to try this and I was not disappointed. Thank you! Note: I have now discovered that putting the ingredients in a small blender to blend works great and takes care of any problems with lumps. It mixes it up into a smooth batter. Read More

My husband has been craving enchiladas so I turned this recipe into a savory tortilla. Added salt, pepper and oregano. Then mixed cooked pork meat, cheese, small amounts of green chilis and onion, and heated it through. Then rolled up two tablespoons on top of 1 "tortilla" and topped it with a small amount of sour cream. We both loved it. Read More

Simple to make and delicious. I used strawberry cream cheese and didn't add the cinnamon or sweetener. The first one I made was a standard crepe size then I did tablespoons then 1/8th cup measures. The crepe size was a beautiful thing to behold but I really didn't want to struggle with getting another one out of the pan hence the experiments. The 1/8th cup measured crepes were easy to manage out of the pan and the size looked nice on a plate. You could fold these in half over fruit or jam and they would be a welcoming sight. Next time I'll add a photo; but this time they're all gone!:-) Thanks for sharing! Read More

These were delicious. I filled them with a cottage cheese vanilla and sweetener mixture along with fresh strawberries. I did not have syrup for the crepe so I just used sweetener. I also made a savory one like a tortilla by omitting the syrup and cinnamon then I filled it with cheese for a quesadilla. YUM! Read More

I joined just to review this! These were FABULOUS and I'm a major crepe and pancake snob! This hits the low-carb spot when you're aching for some pancakes. I didn't use any sugar substitute and they came out yummy and savory. If you want sweet without the sugar substitutes you can spread some preserves or jam or have them with cheese. The only bad part was when they were finished! Read More

These are great but I have a tip that I couldn't keep to myself! if you put a tight fitting lid on during the cooking process the mixture "puffs" up a little! Read More

these are amazing! instead of using sugar free syrup i added splenda brown sugar into the batter and also topped it with a little bit. i didn't want to wait for the cream cheese to soften to try this so i also wound up with chunks but i think it made it taste even better. i'm new to low-carb so this was a lifesaver!
