Whole Wheat Apple Pie Crepes

Basic Crepe Batter

2 Eggs
1 1/4 C. Low Fat Milk
1 C. Wheat Flour (or white)
Pinch of Salt
2 T. Melted Butter or Vegetable Oil

In a blender, put in all the ingredients and blend together until completely blended. Next, place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.  Heat frying pan with a little butter or oil and then pour a 1/8- 1/4 cup of batter into the pan... if its hot enough the batter should stick.  Lift up the pan and let the batter roll around to the edges.  Cook on medium heat until its easy to flip the crepe, cook on the other side for about 30 seconds and serve! Makes about 8-10 depending on how large your pan is.

Apple Pie Filling

4 Medium Apples (peeled and cut thin)
2 T. Brown Sugar (I use Truvia normally making it sugar free)
1/2 t. Cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg (I highly suggest using fresh nutmeg its amazing!)
1-2 T. of Butter (Depends on the size of your apple)
1/2 t. Vanilla

Start by peeling the skin off all your apples, and then cut them up into thin slices. Next add butter to frying pan with apples and saute them until they get soft.  Add sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the pan and mix until sugar is melted.  Last turn off the heat from the stove top, add vanilla and stir for a few second.  Then your done!

To assemble crepe lay the crepe down and spread 1 Tablespoon of Plain Greek Yoghurt.  Next add apple filling to crepe, fold over and start on next crepe.  Once all the crepes are made, I like to drizzle whats left of the sauce from the pan over the crepes.

I'm not a huge fan of syrup on breakfast food, so sometimes when I make wheat pancakes, I like to put this on top instead of syrup.

If you dont want the apples try yoghurt and fresh berries.  I would have done that, but I didn't have any berries laying around, just remember that the plain greek yoghurt is plain, so if you add berries drizzle a little honey or agave syrup to make it sweeter.  This is just a healthier way to eat crepes, and they really do taste amazing! Of course if you want to go the more "traditional" way, add white flour instead of wheat, same amount, and then a favorite of mine is Nutella with fresh strawberries or bananas.
