Hi guys! How are ya? Sorry I had some blog glitches yesterday. The blog was feeling a little hormonal and cranky, but I gave her some crepes and all is bueno in the world 😉

Here’s the recipe I’ve been promising ya’ll:

Whole-grain Crepes

crepe (3)

Makes 3 Gina-sized crepes (1 serving)

-2 egg whites (or 1 T flax mixed in with 2 T water and 1/2 T melted Earth Balance)

-pinch sea salt

1. Grab a large nonstick pan


and heat it to just-under medium heat.


2. In the blender, add the milk, egg whites (or butter flax egg), flour, Stevia and sea salt

    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!

    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!

      sprinkle it on- it will melt 🙂 let me know what you think!

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

    • Fitnessista on October 5, 2011 at 9:31 pm

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

    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!!

    now that TLC song is in my head

  7. Cerissa on February 25, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    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. Cerissa on February 26, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    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!

    • Fitnessista on February 26, 2012 at 11:42 pm

      yeahhhh! 🙂 that sounds fanatastic

  9. AnneW on April 11, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    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!

    • Fitnessista on April 11, 2012 at 11:27 pm

      yay, i’m so glad you’re enjoying the sun warrior and that you liked the crepes!
