Perfect Pan-Crepes

Updated: Apr 20

Breakfast for dinner is always a great idea if you ask me. I unintentionally made these "pan-crepes" one night (too thin to be a pancake, too thick to be a crepe) and I was so surprised by how light, spongy, and filling they turned out to be!


I make pancakes somewhat small, about 5" or so, and this recipe yields 20-25. What makes these pancakes even better? There's less than 3g of sugar in the entire batch.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C plain yogurt

  • 1/2 C flour (whole wheat, buckwheat, almond, or coconut flour)

  • 1/4 C unsweetened dairy-free milk

  • 1/4 C egg whites

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • 4-6g of Stevia

  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt

  • Cinnamon

  • Optional: mini dark chocolate chips, unsweetened coconut flakes, sliced almonds


Directions:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together until smooth (the batter will be a liquidy)

  2. Over medium heat, pour about 1/8-1/4 C of batter on a greased griddle or pan

  3. Flip when bubbles appear

Macros for the whole stack: 49 C | 17 F | 26 P


These macros are without the optional ingredients! For the macros per pan-crepe, just take the macros for the entire stack and divide each macro by the # of pan-crepes made!

Topping Ideas:

  • Sugar-free maple syrup

  • Protein Brownie Batter (personal favorite): in a small bowl, continuously mix 1 scoop of protein while adding small amounts of water until a brownie batter consistency is reached then drizzle over pancakes

  • Homemade Blueberry Jam: in a small bowl, add 1/2 C blueberries (or any other berry) + 2-3 packets of Stevia + a small amount of hot water. Let sit for a few minutes then mash with a spoon until desired jam-like consistency


Tips:

  • Cinnamon: I eyeball cinnamon, I typically have a heavy hand with it because of it's added sweetness and flavor

  • The pan-crepes typically don't need to be cooked long since they're thin; only about 30-45 seconds for each one
