    These were so good! I used applesauce instead of earth balance since I was out and they still were awesome. Took a little longer to cook. But, we added veggies, salsa, and grated cheese :) yum!

  2. Hi Gina! I really want to try the apple, raw goat cheddar and cinnamon crepe. I’m not too familiar with goat cheddar…do you melt the cheese and spread it in the crepe or just sprinkle it over the apples? Can’t wait to try it!

  3. YAY, I love crepes and have wanted to make them a more clean version but have tried a couple times with no luck.. trying this recipe soon!!

  4. hi- what is stevia? (have googled it, but would like your insight). x shayma

    • Fitnessista says:

      it’s a plant-based sweetener. a little bitter, but not chemical based like the other calorie-free options

  5. Hey Fitnessista!

    You have SO MANY healthy food options that sound delicious. I’m so happy I stumbled across your page :) Made these crepes today, they’re so easy and so yummy! I did it with chicken, spinach, and mushrooms. Can’t wait to try some of your other recipes. I made the cookie dough cereal for breakfast, so enjoyable and filling!

    Thanks so much for sharing!!

  6. now that TLC song is in my head

  7. I love your recipes! I just made these crepes for breakfast for myself (while all my boys ate scrambled eggs) with half a banana and a little peanut butter. I am super excited to get in my order of peanut flour to cut down on some of the calories, but…..YUM! Thanks for the high protein quick meal idea :) Can’t wait to try out a savory crepe for lunch soon!

  8. So I’m back again! I went for savory tonight (never had a savory crepe before!)… Sauteed spinach, onion, red pepper, a teeny bit of pepperoni, and feta. SO GOOD! Thanks again!

  9. Just made these with your pumpkin fluff and it was wayyy better than I even thought it would be! Thanks :)

    Also, thanks for suggesting Sun Warrior! Got it from your OpenSky store and it’s delish!

  10. Haven’t tried these yet, but I love my crepes with some nutella & a banana. SO good.
