Blueberry Crepes and Apple Pie Overnight Oats

In an effort to keep the boyfriend who tires of the same food easily happy, I've tried out a couple new breakfast ideas. Well, I suppose I wouldn't call overnight oats new in fact they are eaten quite often around our house, but the crepes are definitely new and definitely going to be making some more appearances. 


Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Ingredients
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup almond milk (more if you like your oatmeal more liquid-y)
2 heaping tbsp no sugar added applesauce
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
cinnamon to taste
apple pie seasoning to taste 

Directions
You know the drill- combine everything the night before and cover!
Note: You can omit the protein powder and almond milk and use 3/4 cup liquid egg whites. In this case you may want to add more sweetener. 

These are my new go-to as I make an attempt to start weaning myself off the pumpkin. {gasp!} Probably not going to happen.


Low Carb Blueberry Crepe

Ingredients
3/4 cup liquid egg whites (or 4-5 regular egg whites)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (You can substitute with 1/4 cup oat flour if you want to add in more carbs)
cinnamon to taste
1 packet truvia 
Greek yogurt or cottage cheese for filling
fruit of choice 

Directions
1. Spray pan with non stick spray and turn heat on low.
2. Whisk together egg whites, protein powder (or oat flour) and cinnamon. 
3. Pour mixture into pan so that it covers the entire bottom.
4. Crepe is ready to flip when bubbles appear and a spatula can easily be slid underneath (about 3-4 minutes) 
5. Once completely cooked fold in half and stuff with your choice of fruit and yogurt/cottage cheese. 

I made one for a snack over the weekend and used cottage cheese as my filling and drizzled a little sugar free maple syrup on top. It was divine. :)

  4. It was just for the picture but I bet some warm apple slices on top would be great! My syrup in Maple Farms- I do believe it has sucralose, unfortunately.

  7. It depends on how much almond milk you put in, I like mine pretty thick so I keep it to a minimum. No cooking involved, just take out in the morning and eat :)

  9. Just whipped these up for my roommate and I to try in the morning and spent about 5 hours in the kitchen trying out a ton of your other recipes! I have to admit I have become a tad obsessed with your blog. It's so inspiring and motivating to see how much fun being healthy can be! Thanks for all the great ideas, I'd love to pick your brain someday :)

  10. How do you use eggwhites in the first recipe if you're not baking or cooking anything. I thought raw eggs can make you sick. Can't wait to try it otherwise!

    1. Pasteurized egg whites (in a carton) are safe to eat raw

  11. I see that a lot of recipes call for protein powder. Can you substitute whey protein in the recipes? I enjoy whey protein powder over regular but wasn't sure. Thanks!
    Oh and I LOVE this website! I'm such a simple eater and it's nice to have simple, clean recipes to follow :) Thank you so much!!!

  15. May be an odd question, but do you leave this on the counter, or put in the fridge?
