During the week we're all about a quick and easy breakfasts, as we've gotta get kids ready and get out the door, but every Sunday Aaron cooks breakfast and I loooove it. It's something we look forward to all week!
As some of you may know, both Aaron and I are currently macro tracking with a goal of fat loss. While we both ate healthy throughout my pregnancy, but I preferred to eat intuitively to make sure I was getting what it needed rather than tracking. Aaron and I do better sticking to macro targets when we're both tracking so he took a break with me. Needless to say, we were both feeling a little soft!
With lower macro targets we dropped our usual protein pancake recipe and created something a bit lighter that doesn't have quite as strong of a hit on our macro allowances...protein crepes! To be totally honest they're kind of in between crepe/pancake but either way, they're delicious.
Ingredients (makes ~6 crepes):
- 1 cup Kodiak Cakes flapjack mix
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup egg whites
- 3 whole eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3 tbsp melted butter
In a small bowl, mix Kodiak Cakes flapjack mix and nutmeg. In a large bowl, mix milk, eggs, egg whites, melted butter, and vanilla. Combine and mix until smooth.
Heat pan to medium heat and pour 1/2 cup of mix, cook for ~1 min on each side.
Macros for 1 cooked crepe (93g):
My favorite way to eat these is with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, but they're also great with:
Kodiak Cakes fruit syrup + whipped cream
Powdered sugar + lemon
Fresh fruit of all kinds
Maple syrup (I suggest adding 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the mix if you go this route, so good!)
