    Yeah there are a lot of things that are awry here. 1 cup of crepe (which would only make sense if the recipe made something like 36 crepes given that each crepe contains 1/3 cup of batter), what is 12 servings of egg whites, which protein powder, how much is one scoop, etc.

    I’m just the opposite. I had a wake up wrap at Dunkin’ Donuts this morning. I love those things so much. But you really can’t make them at home because you can’t find tortillas that thin. So I’ve been thinking all day. Could you just use flour and a lot of water, fry a small amount in a small pan? But wouldn’t it be more like a cracker than a soft tortilla? How about adding egg whites for not much change in taste but lots of protein? Or you could use protein powder. Both of those might soften it a little. Now I’m thinking a little oatmeal might soften it a little. Of course no syrup. Hmmm.

    I've never had a wake up wrap but, having googled pictures, I would just make flour tortillas from scratch. A crepe would probably be the right thickness, but the texture and taste would be pretty different. Something like this recipe from Serious Eats would work https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/04/thin-tender-flour-tortillas-recipe.html . Another idea (which would be lower in calories) would be to make to make Mandarin pancakes.

    @aokoye thanks for the link to the mandarin pancakes. That's a brilliant trick to do 2 at a time!

    Thanks @aokoye will try the mandarin pancakes. Don’t want to try the others, as I don’t want to add that much fat.

    Glad I could be helpful! I"ve made the recipe for Mandarin pancakes before and they're a. very easy and b. very reliable. Just make sure not to skip the oil when rolling them out, otherwise you won't be able to easily separate the two pancakes. Either way, they're the lowest calorie option and they are very thin.

    I’m also fascinated by the Mandarin pancakes, thank you!

    The original recipe in the post just sounds weird and bogus to me! Shan’t be trying that!

    I’m quite fond of spinach crepes, as an alternative to tortillas or wraps to roll round savoury fillings.

    Just break 2 eggs in to a liquidiser/blender, add seasoning and a large handful of baby spinach leaves. Whizz until it’s a uniform colour, with no visible spinach bits. Leave to sit for 20 mins for the bubbles to die down.

    Take your crepe pan (mine’s about 7” I think). Spray with oil, I use a FryLight olive oil, usually. Heat pan, add a small amount of the spinach batter, just enough to swirl around the base. Cook and flip, in just the same way as a standard crepe. Repeat. I get about 8 out of the batch. They freeze well, interleaved with parchment paper.

    Before I made them the first time, I figured it was going to be more of a thin omelette than a crepe, but there’s something about the spinach that counteracts the egginess and equally, something about the egg that balances out the spinach taste.

    I often finely chop spring onions and baby tomatoes and stir through cottage cheese, with herbs and seasoning. Roll up a couple of wraps, pop in a dish and bake for 10 mins. Tasty!
