Ingredients for Crepes
- ½ cup 70 g whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp. 10 g cornstarch
- 3/4 cup 150 ml almond milk (dairy milk works great, too)
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup 60 g plain Greek yogurt, 2%
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp. oil for brushing a skillet
Ingredients for Cottage Cheese Filling
- 2 cups 400 g. cottage cheese, 2%
- 6.5 oz 200 g. cream cheese, fat reduced
- 2 tbsp. 20 g. raisins
- 2-3 tbsp. stevia or 0 cal sweetener to taste
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
For the crepes batter, place all the ingredients except the oil into a blender and blend until smooth and combined.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Slightly brush the skillet with the oil and pour about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of the batter to your heated skillet and swirl it around just to cover the bottom, making the crepe as thin as possible.
Cook until the top comes to dry and underside is golden; turn and cook on the second side about 20 seconds.
Transfer the crêpe to a plate or a cutting board. Repeat with the remaining batter.
How to Make Crepe Cottage Cheese Filling
Simply mix the cottage cheese and cream cheese with a hand mixer or blender until soft and smooth.
Add stevia or sweetener, vanilla extract, and raisins. Mix well to combine.
Spread a layer of the cheese mixture onto each crepe, and roll up the crepe like you would a wrap.
Optional: If you would like to get a crispy texture, heat your nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, slightly brush with the oil and add your filled crepes.
Fry on both sides until golden brown.
Serve immediately with sour cream or yogurt and enjoy!
P.S. These crepes with cottage cheese can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge up to a week.
