I you watch my stories you know how picky I am about food. I don’t like recipes that call for too many ingredients. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Plus, I won’t eat anything with weird textures or if they don’t pass my taste test. Unfortunately, there’s a ton of recipes out there that look like they taste good and just don’t cut it.
But there’s this guy on IG @marekfitness that seriously makes the best recipes. Why are they so good? Well, I can tell that he’s a perfectionist. When I watch his meal prep stories I see his attention to detail. That alone makes me curious. Now that I’ve made several of his recipes I find that:
- they are also macro friendly
- they are delicious
- they pass the texture taste
- they require minimal ingredients
- my kids will eat them too!
- 1 egg (I use organic from Costco)
- 1 cup of 2% milk ( I use organic from Trader Joe’s)
- 1 scoop of strawberry banana protein powder (click link below to see which one I use)
- 1/2 cup (60 grams) of 100% white whole wheat flour ( I use Trader Joe’s)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (I use whatever I have on hand)
- pinch of salt ( I use Himalayan pink salt from Costco)
- mix all wet ingredients
- slowly add dry ingredients while mixing everything together to form a runny batter
- heat a thin non-stick skillet and stop the knob just below the medium flame. If possible use a crepe pan (I use this one from IKEA)
- spray your pan with coconut oil (I use the one from Trader Joe’s) If it turns brown it’s too hot. Wipe down with a bounty, lower the flame and try again.
- pour about 1/4 cup of runny batter on the heated skillet and immediately rotate the pan to cover the entire surface of the pan. If it doesn’t cover it smoothly, try going a bit faster or adding a splash of milk to the batter.
- let it cook for at least 30 seconds. When you see the edges start curling inward it’s time to flip it. Gently flip the crepe with a spatula or your fingers. Mix your batter gently before making your next one. Don’t worry if it’s hard at first. The first one is always the test dummy.
TIPS OR NOTES
- You can experiment to see what works best for you. If you want it crisper, you can make them smaller and let them cook longer. If you like them softer, don’t cook them as long and add a bit more batter to your desired consistency.
- Switch our the fruit to change up the flavors. You can use pears, strawberries, raspberries, banana, blueberries or whatever. You get the idea. Don’t forget you can also make them savory with avocado & cheese. OMGosh yum. The possibilities are endless.
- Btw, I get really impatient when I’m making these because it takes so long. So, if you’re the same way, it helps to listen to music or a podcast. Don’t do anything that requires walking away from the kitchen though. The downside to this recipe is that they’re very needy and require lots of attention. But you know, if you’re a mom you’re used to that right? The payoff is that you’ll have crepes for tomorrow so it’s totally worth it.
