Apple Pie à la Crepe
1 tsp coconut oil
2 large apples, very finely sliced
1 TB water
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup whites or 2 egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup oat flour (you can sub whole wheat flour)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
How to Prepare
- FILLING: Heat coconut oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add apples, water, cinnamon and nutmeg. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until apples have softened. Remove from heat and add scoop of protein. Mix well and set aside
- CREPES: Put whites, almond milk, oat flour, vanilla and salt into a blender. Blend until smooth. (If you don’t have a blender, you can use a whisk, but be sure to blend very well until batter is completely smooth.)
- Coat 10-inch skillet with non-stick cooking spray and put over medium-high heat.
- The KEY here is technique!! Pour approximately ¼ cup of the batter onto the skillet and swirl all around to cover the bottom of the pan in a very thin layer. After approximately 1 minute, or once it starts to bubble and bottom is golden brown, flip crepe over and scoop ¼ of the apple mixture onto the center of the crepe. Cook for an additional 30 seconds or until underside is golden brown. Fold one side of crepe over and roll to seal in the mixture (creating a rollup). Put on plate and repeat this process with all 4 crepes. NOTE! As you continue cooking, the pan will get hotter so it will take less time to cook each one. ENJOY!
