This recipe only has 63 calories, 2 grams of fat and 7 grams of carbohydrates per crepe! 

In a blender, blend together the following ingredients to create a thin batter:

  • 1½ cups of skim milk (soy, almond or Hood Calorie Countdown Dairy Beverage can be substituted)
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp of salt
3 tablespoons of no trans fat buttery spread, melted (such as Smart Balance)

Pour batter into a bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow bubbles to dissipate. Heat an 8" non-stick skillet, such as an omelet pan, on medium heat. Brush skillet with melted butter and ladle a scant ¼ cup of batter into the skillet. Swirl the pan around and around to distribute the batter evenly and to form a circle. Continue swirling the pan until the batter thickens and settles. Replace pan on the burner and cook for about 1 to 1½ minutes, until the edges of the crepe are dry, beginning to brown slightly and curling inward. Using a rubber spatula, lift edge and carefully turn crepe over by hand.

Cook second side for about 30-45 seconds. Remove crepe from pan and place on a piece of parchment paper to cool.

To store crepes, make certain that crepes are separated with a piece of parchment paper between each crepe. Arrange crepes in a stack and place in a resealable plastic bag.

These crepes may be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to use. Use within 3-4 days.

 These basic crepes can be used in sweet or savory recipes. Fill them with fresh fruit, berries, or sugar-free pudding for a light dessert. Fill them with your favorite vegetables, mushrooms, cooked turkey or chicken and cheese, heat in a 350-degree oven until cheese is melted for a delicious lunch or easy dinner.

Yield: About 14 6" to 7" crepes
