Apple Butter Strawberry Banana Crêpes


Perfect for breakfast or dessert, this fruit crepe is sure to be a hit. You can use the crepe base and change up the filling to make this dish either savoury or sweet! Stay tuned for future savoury crepe recipes!




First you will whisk together half a cup of whole wheat all purpose flour, one large egg, a third cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a third cup of water, half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and cinnamon to taste. (If you wish to make savory crêpes, omit the cinnamon and vanilla).

Next heat up a pan on low heat and coat with cooking spray. Remove from heat and add your batter into the pan, making circle like motions in order to evenly distribute a thin layer of the batter. Cook on low-medium heat for one to two minutes per side. Make sure to coat the pan with cooking spray each time before adding batter.


Spread one tablespoon of apple butter evenly on crepe. Fill with a third cup of sliced strawberries and a quarter cup of sliced bananas. Roll up and top with a tablespoon of maple syrup. Serve and enjoy!
