High Protein Crepes

Thank you Vital Proteins for sponsoring this post so I can share the recipe for these high protein, easy to make crepes!


I'm the type of person that is incapable of sleeping in on the weekends and ALWAYS wakes up hungry. It seems so early and miserable if my alarm ever goes off at 5:30AM during a week day, but for some reason my eyes often shoot open at 5:30am on a Saturday of their own accord.  I mean, really???


Since I often find that way too early to actually get out of bed for a weekend day, I normally lay around in bed for awhile, scroll on my phone, and start planning what type of breakfast I want to make! I typically plan my breakfast out in advance during the week days, but I don't plan for breakfasts on the weekend and just make whatever I'm in the mood for.  One recent Saturday morning when I was up at the crack of dawn I started craving some CREPES!!! I did some scrolling, looked at a few different recipes, then finally tried my own version at about 7am when I got out of bed and let me tell you: they were GOOD!!!


So good that I've been craving them every weekend since! The best thing about these crepes is that they are super high in protein from using Vital Proteins Banana Cinnamon Collagen Whey in the recipe. Along with starting your morning packed with protein, you will also get added health benefits: this supplement combines grass fed whey protein with collagen, probiotics, and natural hyaluronic acid for better hair, skin, nail and even gut health!


You can fill/top the crepes with whatever you are in the mood for, but I've been a fan of caramelized bananas, peanut butter, and a "cheesecake" filling using greek yogurt! Even if you don't have much on hand you can really make these crepes with only two ingredients: whey protein and egg whites.  I added a little sweetener and vanilla extract to my crepes for added flavor, but as long as you have egg whites (I used carton egg whites but regular whites separate from an egg would be fine too)  protein powder, and either a mini frother or a little elbow grease with a whisk, you can easily make this breakfast pretty quickly.


When you add in all the toppings and fillings this breakfast actually packs over FIFTY grams of protein in it! Come prepared with your appetite, or split a serving with someone sweet in your life ;)

High Protein Crepes
Breakfast crepes made high protein using egg whites and protein powder that can be filled with anything for a sweet breakfast treat!
    • ½ Scoops (28g) Vital Proteins Banana Cinnamon Collagen Whey
    • 220ml Egg Whites
    • 1 Tbs Stevia in the Raw
    • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
    • ¾ Cup (170g) Plain 0% Greek Yogurt
    • 8g Sugar Free Cheesecake Flavored Pudding Mix
    • 1 Small (100g) Banana
    • 2 Tbs (12g) Powdered Peanut Butter
    • Sugar Free Syrup 
    • Fat Free Whip Cream
      Instructions
      Combine protein powder and egg whites in a large bowl. Use a whisk to combine and then use a handheld frother to whip the mixture for about 2 minutes until the egg whites become fluffy. In a small bowl, mix greek yogurt and pudding mix and stir until combined. It should be a thick consistency. In another small bowl mix powdered peanut butter with water or zero calorie liquid sweetener until it forms a peanut butter consistency. Heat a non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray to medium high heat. Pour ¼ of the batter into the pan and swirl to coat. Let cook for just under a minute until the crepe starts to form and then CAREFULLY flip the crepe to cook the other side. Repeat until you have 4 thin crepes (can also be made into 3 thicker crepes) Chop the banana into thin slices and then add to the same skillet the crepes were in with a drizzle of sugar free syrup. Cook for about five minutes until the banana slices start to caramelize with the syrup. Assemble the crepes by distributing ¼ of the yogurt mixture between each crepe. Use a knife to spread it onto the crepe and then roll up and place seam side down on your plate. Top with banana slices, peanut butter mixture, sugar free syrup, fat free whip cream and enjoy!
