healthy crepes aren’t a thing…
OH BUT THEY ARE!
So recently I’ve been really getting into eating healthily and staying under 1200 calories a day since I’ve been feeling really down about my figure for a long time. Although I know for a fact that I’m not overweight or “fat,” but I often found myself comparing my figure with other girls and feeling as if I wasn’t quite up to standard. So i decided to make a change… and a big change.
I come from a Greek and Italian heritage, which can only mean one thing… meat and carbs… One time I told my Nonna that I didn’t want to finish my past and a swear she started to tear up.
So this is serious bizz.
So one of the recipes that I have been LOVING, is this great, cheap alternative crepe recipe that I found on the blogilates website. http://www.blogilates.com/blog/2013/06/14/healthy-banana-berry-crepes-recipe/
It only takes a few ingredients, and it is EXTREMELY low in calorie, as well as tasting fab and being a real cheap, clean eat (and it literally kept me full for so long).
So what I did was put a 1/3 of a cup of oats in my blender until it was a fine powder, whilst adding a tsp of cinnamon.
Next I added half a banana, one egg and a 1/4 of a cup of unsweetened almond milk and blending.
Next I sprayed a little oil onto a non-stick pan( I tried it with coconut oil but it didn’t seem to work), pouring a third of the batter and cooking it like a regular pancake/crepe.
I got three crepes out of the mixture.
Next I chopped up 3 strawberries and half a banana, placing them into the centre of the crepe and securing it with a toothpick.. thing.
Next I cut open a small passionfruit and poured the remnants over the crepes and placed a tiny dollop of coconut milk yogurt.
Lastly, I finished it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey 🙂
Without the yogurt and honey, this comes to only about 250 calories!
*btw I’m not very good at making food look pretty but I did my best 🙂
