Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1/2 c white flour
    1/2 c whole wheat flour
    2 large eggs
    1/4 c egg white
    3 Tbsp melted becel
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 1/3 c milk 1%

Directions

***This batter needs to sit for at least an hour so make it up the night before a breakfast or a few hours beforehand if you're serving it for dessert. Basically you just whip all ingredients together and refrigerate.

Oil hot non-stick pan with butter or cooking spray and put a very light coating of batter in pan. Roll it around until you have a thin layer coating the pan and pour out any excess back into your batter bowl. Quickly cook one side. (Flip when you see bubbles in your crepe) and lightly cook the other side.
**Also note that these may be cooked ahead of time and refrigerated in layers once they've cooled.

I suggest a light spread of cream cheese on the "private side" of the crepe and then add a few chopped berries and roll. Top with: a dusting of powdered sugar, a little chocolate sauce or syrup and/or cool whip.

Serving Size:†Makes 10 (8") crepes or 15-20 (5") crepes. My calorie count is for the larger crepes.

Number of Servings: 10
