Whole Wheat Crepes (Skinny Pancakes)

This morning I put together a whole wheat version of my favorite 'skinny pancakes'..aka 'crepes'. Instead of using pancake syrup, we filled our crepes with sugar-free, fat-free cool whip and diced up strawberries. So good and easy to make. Just throw everything in a blender.

1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 c water
1 c 2% milk
1 tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil if you don't have coconut oil)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 egg whites

  • Put all ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly.
  • Warm up a large non-stick skillet. (medium to high heat)
  • Spray with cooking spray and pour about 1/4 c of batter into skillet.
  • Take skillet and rotate around off heat to spread out the batter into a thin layer.
  • Let cook for about 1-2 minutes, you will see the ends of the crepes start to harden, then flip for about 15-20 seconds on the other side.
This batch will make about 6-8 depending on how large your skillet is. :)
