Pumpkin Protein Crepes

I did some playing around in the kitchen over the weekend and had a couple HUGE successes. This one is success number one, and hopefully I'll be able to post the other one on Thursday.

I've always been a huge pumpkin lover, pumpkin pie to be exact. It reminds me of being a little kid at holidays and putting whipped cream from the top of my slice of pie to the bottom, and then a squirt in my mouth of course. These crepes gave me my pumpkin fix at breakfast no less!


Ingredients:
Crepes:
1/4 cup almond meal
4 egg whites
2 tsp cinnamon

Filling:
2-3oz pureed pumpkin
2oz greek yogurt
2 packets Truvia
1 tsp cinnamon
Sprinkle of vanilla protein powder (optional)


Directions:
1. Heat a skillet over low heat with cooking spray.

2. In a bowl, combine crepe ingredients and mix well.

3. Pour 1/3 of the mixture into the pan and make sure it is spread out as thin as possible.

4. Once the batter begins to bubble, use a spatula to flip onto the other side.

5. Repeat with rest of batter. It should be enough for 3 crepes.

6. In a seperate bowl, combine pumpkin filling ingredients and mix well.

7. Place 1/3 of filling on the edge of a crepe and roll like a burrito. Repeat for rest.

8. I topped mine with a little more greek yogurt and a little more cinnamon! You can also top with some sugar free syrup to make them a little sweeter :)

  3. Any chance you know the conversion of egg whites/liquid egg whites?? I would guess 4 whites is about 1/2 cup??

    1. Umm I actually think it's 3/4 cup- it should say right on the egg white carton though.

  7. These look awesome! Will definitely try. Quick question - you have mentioned the James Wilson program. I am looking to burn some fat and thought about trying it. Does he have a website? I cannot seem to find anything. Thanks.

  9. These look really delicious. It's hard to get pureed pumpkin in Australia but you've motivated me to try and hunt down a can to try these out.

  12. Just made these today. So delish! I also found that almond meal is so expensive, what kind do you use, or do you make your own to reduce the cost?

    1. I use the Bobs Red mill-- it's super expensive but I just suck it up :( You can make your own though if you have a really good food processor.
