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!

Premier Protein Crepes

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!

Delicious, Gluten Free, Protein Packed, Vanilla Crepes with a delightfully scrumptious apple pumpkin filling that happens to also be protein fortified! You'll be ready to take over the world after this breakfast of champions!


  • 1 cup gluten free flour of your choice

  • 1 cup Premier Protein Vanilla Shake
  • 1/3 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, eggs, Premier Protein Vanilla, Shake, water, and salt with a whisk and a whole lot of elbow grease! Mix till batter is creamy and lump-free
  • Then whisk in the melted coconut oil
  • Place a pan over medium heat and grease it with coconut oil
  • Add a ladlefull of batter to pan and twirl pan around so batter coats bottom of pan in a thin layer
  • Flip and let cook about 30 seconds and transfer to a plate
  • Repeat with the rest of the butter
  • Add coconut oil to the same pan and add in the apple, coconut sugar, salt, pumpkin puree, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice and let cook till apple softens - stirring often
  • Add the Premier protein shake and stir till excess liquid is evaporated
  • Place a couple of tablespoons of batter in each crepe and roll and enjoy
  • Can be enjoyed with plain syrup or pumpkin syrup

    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!

  5. 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 😉

    • Shashi says:

      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?

  6. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef says:

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

  7. 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 😉

  8. So clever Shashi! Love how you used the protein shake for this and those pomegranate seeds look gorgeous in the pictures!

  9. hipfoodiemom says:

    Crepes with protein vanilla shake?! Wow! and that apple pumpkin filling! I love it! looks delicious!

  10. nagimaehashi says:

    Woah! Shashi, did you get a new camera? Those pics are amazing!! That filling – you’ve captured them perfectly!! Pinning of course!

  11. What a great idea to use the protein shake to make the crepes 🙂

  12. dishofdailylife says:

    Your crepes are beautiful! What a fabulous breakfast…my kids would go nuts if I made them this (and they’d probably be in shock too, as I am not much of a morning person)! My husband is usually the breakfast guy…I think I am going to hand over your recipe to him! This would be a nice treat!

  13. asha Shiv says:

    That filling and the whole package looks pretty darn delicious. Adding the protein shake in the batter is genius, just makes it special. I’m with your little girl, love pancakes.
    Great job as usual Sashi.
    Hugs to you and your girl. happy weekend.

  14. Ashley says:

    I’ve actually never made crepes myself! I need to fix this! These look wonderful – especially with that apple pumpkin filling! Happy happy weekend Shashi!

  15. Mira says:

    I’m a huge fan of crepes and these look gorgeous! I used to buy Premium Protein Shakes at Costco! Will have to get them again! Pinning!

  16. Mike says:

    In the Middle Ages they knew what was what. Booze in crepes? That’s genius, I need to try that asap 😉
    On a more serious note, I love that you made these crepes with a protein shake, it’s so clever. Plus they make the perfect post-workout treat. Well done my friend!

  17. These look like serious protein perfection right there. I have never mastered the art of making crepes, but this certainly makes me want to try!

  18. This sounds amazing! I love that you snuck in the protein without her noticing 🙂 The filling has me craving all things fall right now!

  19. spicedblog says:

    Crepes! Man, I haven’t made crepes in forever. I clearly need to get over that as these look delicious, Shashi! And those pomegranate seeds… So let’s reach a compromise between you and lil Shashi. You can make me some pancakes. She can make me some crepes. Everyone wins! 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      “Everyone” wins???? Wait – what do I get???? Dude .. how about YOU make some of those fried apple cider doughnuts for US!!! Now THAT would mean EVERYONE wins! 🙂

  20. Wendy Polisi says:

    These look so amazing. I never make crepes and I’m not sure why. I need to give this a try.

  21. amindfullmom says:

    This to me is phenomenal. I would skip pancakes any day for this!

  22. that filling though! Perfection 🙂

  23. I need these in my belly right now!

  24. So it’s the old crepes vs. pancakes war, huh? Love this nutritious and beautiful breakfast. I might even hop a plane for it. Just sayin’….. have a beautiful day Shashi!

    • Shashi says:

      Allie you are welcome ANYTIME! I would love to make you some of these – though, my daughter is a quick eater – she always manages to sneak more in than I do as I am a slow eater – So, you’d have to practice eating super fast!! 🙂

  25. Catherine says:

    Dear Shashi, Your crepes are so beautiful…what a fabulous fall inspired breakfast. Love it! xo, Catherine

  26. Oh wow! These crepes look divine, Shashi. Pumpkin apple filling sounds fantastic. Awesome share. Loved it my friend! 🙂

  27. Woe Shashi, these look sooo good! Apple and pumpkin are a winning combo!

  28. hotlyspiced says:

    I’m with your daughter – I prefer crepes! Sorry! I just love the variety of fillings you can put in a crepe xx

    • Shashi says:

      Yes, you are right as to the fillings – I made a crepe cake that’s coming up on Tuesday – Charlie – it was so much fun working on it! Thanks so much BTW xx

  29. I want these right now!! Make them for me pleeeeease? I haven’t had crepes in forever!

  30. Ummmmmmm BEETS feel really left out right now!

  31. Angie@Angie's Recipes says:

    p.s did you make your own pumpkin syrup?

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Angie!!! What a great idea to use that filling for some hand pies! And yes – that pumpkin syrup IS homemade – recipe posting on Mondays post coming right up… 🙂

  32. Angie@Angie's Recipes says:

    It’s breakfast time here and I need this since I am just done with morning yoga. I love esp. the pumpkin apple filling, Shashi. The filling would be fantastic for some hand pies too.
