Protein Crepes With Apple Pumpkin Protein Filling #MyGoodEnergy

These last couple of years, after the first weekend in September, we become a house divided! I am not sure if it’s the changing weather, or all the football talk, or the anticipation leading up to turning our clocks back an hour – but September has my daughter and I having trouble seeing eye to eye. You see, she loves crepes and I adore pancakes!

It always boggles my mind how a tad bit of melted butter can change how my daughter regards a mix of flour, eggs, milk, sweetener, and salt. Even when she was a wee little one and could barely reach the counter-top, she would sneak crepes off the plate as I made them – a behavior she still proudly carries on now (hence the lonesome 2 crepes in these photographs). Speaking of what goes into crepes, I was surprised to learn that in the middle ages, crepes were made with a mix of wine and water instead of milk!

On those weekend mornings when we plan on getting out of the house early to go hiking, I know that the only thing that will have my daughter not acting like a bear mid-hibernation is the smell and sound of crepes cooking! And, me being me, I have to make sure that the crepes I feed her have something good in them.

So, I made these with Premier Protein’s vanilla shake and even sneaked some protein shake into the filling! I also used coconut oil instead of butter and she didn’t even know these were good for her!

These crepes are gorgeous, Shashi! I love that you added protein shake to them! An apple and pumpkin filling sounds delicious and perfect for fall!

Well, I'm on your daughters corner for this one! I too adore crepes but not pancakes so much. In England, our pancakes are not like American ones, they are more crepe like but a little thicker than crepes. Ive just always loved the non fluffy pancakes. I'm also a lover of waffles :) Like your use of the protein milk in this, I'm not sure about the pumpkin filling though ;)

Nazneen - in Sri lanka, pancakes are not as fluffy either! They are a lot like crepes only slightly thicker! I have a Sri Lankan coconut pancake coming up in a couple of weeks, I guess Sri Lankans must have their pancakes from the British huh?

Those crepes are gorgeous! I wouldn't have thought of that filling combination but it sounds (and looks) terrific!

Such an interesting mix of ingredients, Shashi! Really unique, but so delicious-sounding! I can't believe crepes used to be made with wine and water ... that's crazy! Are you going to try that for us some day ;-)
