This past week I attended the Baking With Betty event in Minneapolis with several fantastic bloggers. While at the event we were able to bake, fry and try lots of sabroso/tasty recipes. Although I LOVED them all, I have to admit crepes were my favorite because of their simplicity.

I used the original crepe recipe, changing a few ingredients to suit my family’s taste and my mission to live a healthier lifestyle. You can view original crepe recipes by going to the Betty Crocker website.

Crepes

  • 1/2 cup Original Bisquick mix
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup skim milk (original recipe calls for regular milk)
  • 1 tablespoon I Can’t Believe its Not Butter (original recipe uses butter, melted)
  • 4 egg whites (original recipe calls for 2 whole eggs)

 

  1. In small bowl, beat Bisquick mix, sugar, 1/2 cup skim milk, melted butter and egg whites until blended.
  2. Grease nonstick skillet, heat over medium heat.
  3. For each crepe, pour two teaspoons batter into skillet; immediately rotate skillet until batter covers bottom.
  4. Cook until golden brown on bottom side. Turn and cook other side until golden brown.
  5. Stack crepes as you remove them from skillet.

Crepes can be filled with various items. I filled my sons with bananas (noted below). I prefer mine with eggs and veggies.

crepes-collageBanana & Strawberry Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cup fat free whipped cream (I prefer Reddi-Wip)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 to 3 bananas, sliced
  • 6 strawberries, sliced

In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream and sugar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Spoon about 3 tablespoons whipped cream down center of each crepe; top with 4 or 5 banana slices. Roll up; top each crepe with whipped cream and add strawberries. 

Note: You can use  any berry, or even granola/nuts, to the crepe. This way your children receive their daily fruit/fiber intake without realizing it!

Enjoy!
