Quick and Easy Crêpes
These flourless crêpes are a quick and easy delight that will brighten up any breakfast and hit the spot when you are craving a decadent and delightful dessert! They are sooo rich that they’ve kept me out of the local pancake house and away from those loaded waffles (loaded with sugar, that is)!

Ingredients
  • Crêpe Shell Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar substitute (we use Splenda)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (no sugar added)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or trans-fat free margarine
  • Filling Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sugar substitute (we use Splenda)
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup fresh mixed berries, (optional)

Instructions
  1. Add all crêpe shell ingredients, except butter, to a bowl and mix well with a whisk.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix filling ingredients together with a fork until blended and set aside.
  3. Melt about a teaspoon of the butter in an 8 inch non-stick pan over medium heat.
  4. Drop 2 heaping tablespoons of the crêpe mix in the hot pan and immediately tilt the pan back and forth to help spread the mix thinly, to the size of the pan.
  5. Cook for only a minute or two until set and carefully flip the crêpe and cook for just another minute. Repeat this procedure until the mix is gone.
  6. Fill each crêpe with around 1 heaping tablespoon of the filling and berries if you would like and roll up loosely. Garnish with some berries around the plate. (Crêpe shells may be wrapped with wax or parchment paper in between and then kept fresh refrigerated or frozen in a zipper-lock bag.)

Helpful Tip
These crêpe shells are great simply stuffed with the fresh berries or even served by their lonesome, like pancakes.
