What if you just say “I love really thin pancakes”. Hey guys and gals for breakfast today I switched it up a bit. I picked up some Michel De France crepes the last time that I was at World Market and decided to give them a try today and let me say they did not disappoint! They are very macro friendly at 9c/1f/1p for each crepe! I ended up having 4 today for breakfast which I was plenty filling even on my poverty macros, but I did hit under 170 for the first time since high school! Look out for my about me post coming TODAY and I will post some transformation photos.
So for the crepes I decided to do two eggs and bacon and two filled with a Greek yogurt filling. These crepes were actually great tasting by themselves with a nice sweetness. For the egg and bacon ones I used half a cup of egg whites in each and then a single slice of Trader Joe’s turkey bacon in each. The combination of the sweetness of the crepe with the savoryness (might not be a word but it is now) of the bacon made these taste amazing! They were almost like a McGriddle. Maybe the next time I might also add a little cheese to them for some more flavors but really it doesn’t need it. The macros for each of these crepes were 10c/2.5f/20p. Highly recommend these!
For the sweet crepes I made a filling of 1cup 2%Fage Greek yogurt, 17g of natural peanut butter, 17g of raspberry preserves, and 22g of whipped cream cheese. I thought this mixture might need some Splenda to cut the sourness of the Greek yogurt but the peanut butter and the preserves cut it perfectly! I also thought about putting some syrup on these but after eating the egg and bacon crepes and finding out that they are sweet and the filling for these was good enough that I didn’t need the syrup. Each of these crepes were 17c/10f/15p. The fat on these can be cut by using the fat free Greek yogurt.
The best part about this whole meal is that the longest part was just cooking the eggs and bacon. I microwaved the crepes for 30 seconds once I had them filled. If you can find these crepes give them a try! If not they can be ordered online at http://www.micheldefrance.com/ where you can get a case of them for $21.00. These would also be great with some fresh fruit and other fillings once I start getting a little more carbs in my diet. Hope you guys enjoy! Let me know some of your favorite fillings for crepes.
