The initial thought of a crepe might bring about a mental image of sugar, chocolate, with a side of fruit. But it is important to say that not all crepes are bad for you! Indulge in our top 5 healthy crepe ideas which not only keep you full, but are so quick and easy to create.
Peanut butter and banana crepes
Stick to a slightly more conventional crepe which involves none other than banana and peanut butter. Use just one tablespoon of peanut butter for a savoury taste and why not add some honey to make it extra sweet?
Apple and cinnamon crepes
What’s better than a delicious rolled apple crepe? To keep with the soft consistency of the batter, gently grill the apple for 5-10 minutes, then sprinkle some cinnamon over the top before serving.
Strawberry fig crepes
Perfect if you have a few fruits around the kitchen which are too ripe to eat on their own. Mash together the strawberry and fig into a soft puree, then smooth over the inside of a crepe. That’s it, so easy!
Pear French crepes
Take that traditional French recipe and serve with a generous side of pear. Simply mash half of a ripe pear, then season with cinnamon for a taste sensation. Hold the cream if you’re watching your weight – it isn’t necessary for this recipe.
Lemon and raspberry crepes
Finally, one of our all-time favourites: the lemon and raspberry crepe. It might seem like a weird combination, but the result is a perfect fusion of sweet and sour without any nasty additives.
Which crepe would you try? We’re still very much sold on number 1…
