Flourless Crepes

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

My breakfast for the past 2 days has been influenced by several, and I thank you all. I originally got the idea for making this sweet egg pancake from Ashley. However, I couldn’t locate the recipe until just now. (Ashley, I really want to try your version as I forgot how delicious it looks!) Anyway, all I remembered was to cover the eggs while they cooked. So, my first attempt at what is basically a flourless crepe was yesterday, and it turned out so good. All I did was beat 2 whole eggs with 1/3 tsp of baking powder and cook the egg mixture over medium heat in a covered skillet, no flipping required. Then, taking reader Tracy’s advice, I covered it with 1/2 a mashed avocado and Trader Joe’s reduced sugar strawberry preserves.

Don’t knock the avo/jam combo until you try it. Tracy, you were right, I loved it. :)

This morning I woke up early with my mind spinning. So much to do before the HEABlet arrives, but I know it will all fall into place. It will, right?!? To try and calm myself down, I set about making myself another crepe as I figured it would make a good light breakfast before my 8:30 AM yoga class. This time, taking Amber’s advice, I added cinnamon to the batter, and topped my egg pancake with Artisana macadamia cashew butter, Naturally Nutty cinnamon cashew butter, and TJ’s strawberry preserves. I forgot to cover the eggs while they cooked, but they still came out great. (The black specks are from my cast iron skillet – yay, more iron!)

Yum, another winner!
