As a vegetarian it can be hard to get enough protein so I made two lovely recipes for crepes and I thought other might like to try them.

Maple cinnamon crepes
3/4 cup egg whites
1/2tbsp milled flax seeds
1/4tsp baking powder
1/4cup sugar free maple syrup (I use Vermont's sugar free maple syrup)
1tsp of cinnamon

**130 calories, 6g carbs (5g net carbs), 1g fat, 21g protein

Chocolate crepes
3/4 cup egg whites
1/2tbsp milled flax seeds
1/4tsp baking powder
1tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1tbsp splenda

**125 calories, 4g carbs (1g net carbs), 2g fat, 22g protein

    Cook on medium heat in a pan sprayed with non stick spray like Pam, flip and cook the other side.

    At seeing some of my favourite ingredients (maple syrup, chocolate, cinnamon, cocoa powder, flax seed), I am most certainly looking forward to enjoying this, come this Saturday (possibly earlier :happy: )

    Thanks much ... <333 it!!

    Yeah, I don't think it would make a big difference. I just use them because they're so healthy and yummy.
