Crepes are easy to make and a great way to create a main dish or dessert great for any dieter and low on Weight Watchers points. You don’t need a special pan and probably have all the ingredients on hand.
Here’s my recipe for basic dessert crepes:
1 cup flour (any type)
1 cup skim milk
1 T sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix ingredients with whisk.
Heat small skillet that has been sprayed with Olive Oil spray to medium heat (spray before the first few crepes…you probably won’t need to after that)
Add scant 1/4 cup batter to pan and swirl until it covers bottom of pan.
Cook until the top of crepe is no longer moist and starting to curl
Lift edge of crepe with fork or spatula and place crepe on plate (cook only one side)
Continue until batter is gone.
Fill crepe with pudding, whipped topping, fruit, ice cream, etc.
My favorite filling is a spoonful of fat free Strawberry yogurt spread down the middle, slices of strawberries, blueberries and banana, topped with a generous spoon of fat free whipped topping.
This filling adds less than 1 pt to the crepe. Without the yogurt the filling is zero pts!
I use whole wheat flour, but you can use any type of flour you prefer. You could try 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat to add more fiber to your diet.
Be sure to refrigerate your crepes right away and eat within a few days as they will spoil. They’re so easy to make, you can make 1/2 batch if you don’t think you’ll eat them up fast enough.
