8. Choc Raspberry Stuffed Crepes

Lemon and sugar has been a classic - so we've adjusted it to be low carb!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Protein Pancake Mix
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Milk of your choice
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1tsp Vanilla Bean Paste (or vanilla essence)

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup Raspberries, thawed
  • 2-3 tbsp Chocolate Spread (I use Pure Harvest COCO2 Chocolate Almond)

Method

  1. Combine your pancake mix ingredients and whisk well. Set aside and heat a pan with some coconut oil or butter - you'll need to spread it right to the edge to make sure the crepe doesn't stick.
  2. Spoon a third of the pancake mix into the pan and spread around into a thin, large crepe. Once the top starts to bubble and they hold, flip over and cook for another few minutes. Remove and set aside, then repeat with other crepes.
  3. To assemble, spread the chocolate spread first, then top with berries then fold over like a wrap.
  4. Top with some more raspberries (cooked in microwave for 30 sec -1 min for an easy berry puree), cacao nibs, sugar-free maple syrup and coconut flakes.

The mint and fresh berries in this recipe makes it so fresh and tasty.

Ingredients

  • Protein Pancake Mix
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • A handful of Organic Mixed Frozen Berries
  • Coyo Acai & Blueberry Ice Cream
  • Raw Cacao Nibs
  • Fresh Mint

Method

  1. Cook pancakes as per packet instructions.
  2. While the pancakes are cooking, place berries in a small bowl and microwave for 1 minute, stirring after 3o secs, until they're warm and soft.
  3. Top pancakes with cooked berries, ice cream, cacao nibs and some yummy fresh mint leaves.
And here are some handy tips for cooking your Protein Pancakes:
  • Have the pan nice and hot and starting to smoke, then turn it down - this helps the pancakes not to stick
  • To enjoy your pancakes on weekday mornings where you might be pressed for time, cook in a batch and freeze. Then just reheat in the toaster for a quick breakfast!
  • Be careful with your toppings - the pancakes are low carb and guilt-free, but if you add toppings which are high in sugar you'll undo all the hard work we've done to make the pancakes low carb!
  • Don't forget you can use our pancake mix for so many other things!
