Guilt-Free Chocolate Protein Crepe!

  • Enjoy this chocolate crepe morning, noon, or night! I conjured this up a few years ago trying to satisfy my sweet tooth when dieting for a fitness show. I fell in love with it and hope you do too. There are so many variations on this, depending on your own personal taste as well as any nutrition requirements you need…so read to the bottom for some “guilt-free” add ons!

    This easy recipe has been approved by both my foodie friends and my fitness competitor pals (who enjoy this crepe on and off season)! Delish!

Items Needed:
10 ” or 12″ non-stick pan
Cooking Spray
4 oz. egg whites (organic preferred)
1 Tablespoon unsweetened, dark coco powder (organic if you can find it)
1 tsp organic, unsweetened cacao nibs (a substitute can be some crushed, organic nuts for texture)
1 cup organic spinach (substitute organic kale or even 1 Tablespoon of organic, canned pumpkin for a fluffier texture, like a pancake. My personal preference is using 1/2 scoop of *IsaGreens. Note: If you use IsaGreens, omit the Stevia and raw spinach. If you need more protein, add into 1/2 scoop of undenatured, chocolate whey protein powder.).
3-6 drops of organic, liquid Stevia (substitute with beet sugar, Monkfruit or Swerve if you prefer. Note: this can change the listed nutrition facts).
Blend all of the ingredients using a hand blender or Magic Bullet to create your “batter”.
Pour into your warm, non-stick pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray (never cook in a cold pan! Make sure your pan has been on a low or medium heat for 60 seconds).
Cover – do not flip – use a vented lid to bake all the way through, for no more than 3 minutes (cook times will vary. I use a medium heat and keep watch to when the crepe is done).
Gently remove and roll the crepe onto your plate with a spatula for a beautiful presentation.
Add a few fresh, organic berries, and a mint leaf to garnish!

A special addition if you are ok with a few more calories (but still good for you), immediately sprinkle on a few dark chocolate chips and allow them to melt. I use 1 square of organic dark chocolate or 1 IsaDelight!
