Lo Carb Pancake Crepes a la Jeannette

Submitted by: TAROTGARDEN

Introduction

I found the base recipe for this on another site, but made some changes and additions -- and ended up with a tasty result that's even lower in calories than the original. Although I haven't tried it, you could probably make this a vegan dish by using egg and butter substitutes.

Ingredients

    3 oz Tofutti "Better than Cream Cheese"
    2 large eggs, beaten
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 Tbsp Walden Farm 0-calorie pancake syrup
    4 tsp butter
    2 Tbsp agave nectar

Directions

1) In a bowl, mash the Tofutti with beaten eggs, about 1 teaspoon at a time at first, until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Beat in the cinnamon and sugar-free syrup.

2) Melt 1 tsp butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the butter has stopped foaming, reduce heat to medium-low, and pour in several tablespoons (1/4th) of the batter. Swirl to coat the bottom of the skillet.

3) Allow to cook until set, about 4 minutes on the first side; flip the crepe with a spatula and cook the other side until the crepe shows small browned spots, 1 to 2 more minutes. While cooking, drizzle 1/2 Tbs of agave nectar over the top side. When finished, slide the crepe onto a plate to cool.

4) Clean any crumbs out of the skillet, then repeat steps 2 and 3 until the batter is all used (3 more times, if you're using an 8" - 10" skillet).

The combination of the cinnamon, syrup, and agave make this lightly sweet -- perfect for my tastes, but if you want it a little sweeter, you can add more syrup or agave, or top with fruit or even whipped cream.
