Healthy Banana Berry Crepes Recipe
|

June 14, 2013

 

Hey POPsters!!

I’ve been experimenting and experimenting all week long, trying to find you the coolest and yummiest foods that are budget friendly, healthy, and easy to make. This week’s recipe gets checkmarks for all of those! Crepes. Healthy crepes! Ever walk by a giant glass window and see the guy pouring creamy batter onto a hot griddle, then watch him smother it with Nutella and fill it up with freshly chopped bananas, artistically fold it into a 1/4 circle and drizzle it with honey and top it with powdered sugar?

Oh yes my lovelies…this week I have a gorgeous crepe recipe for you but it ain’t gonna cost you $8.99 or anywhere near that. It’s gonna cost you 83 cents!! And you’re gonna feel like you’re having a guiltless YOLO meal. Nope, not an oxymoron. Ready for the ingredients? Here it is!

healthy crepes ingredients

Directions:

1. Mix your dry ingredients together (oats, cinnamon) and blend into a fine powder in a Magic Bullet or regular blender.

2. Then add half a ripe banana, an egg (or 2 egg whites), and almond milk. Blend!

3. Take your batter and pour into a pan on low-medium heat. Just a thin layer!

4. After you see mini bubbles form on top, flip it! If you can flip it in the air – DO IT!!!! It’s exhilarating. This batter will make about 3 crepes about 8″-9″ in diameter!

5. Now fill up your crepe with fresh fruits! I used 4 strawberries and the other half of the banana! Roll it up. You’ll get 3 sleeping puppies that you can pet 🙂

6. Optional – to top, you can add nonfat Greek Yogurt and a honey drizzle!

The whole recipe without the honey and yogurt is only 250 cals with no added sugar, and using all natural ingredients! Nothing crazy here.

I hope you give this recipe a shot and wow your family with it. They won’t even know it’s good for them! Seriously!! If anyone makes this please use the hashtag #cheapcleaneats on Instagram, Twitter, and now…even Facebook! Did you see this?

I had no clue that you can hashtag on basically all social media networks now! Great!! This will make it so easy to find your food and comment on it. And of course for all y’all to find each other too when you’re hashtagging similar topics!

Look at that. It’s beautiful and so so good for you! MMMMM! I’m hungry. Want this now.

Ok go cook, eat well, and enjoy your day! We have a lovely weekend ahead of us. I love seeing your hard work from the #JuneOnFire Calendar – you guys are KILLING it and I am so proud of you! In the comments, will you let me know what I should healthify next?

Thank you and love you!

<3 Cassey

Ps…Been trying to make healthy bubble milk tea. It’s really hard to sub those tapioca pearls…they have a distinct chew when you bite into them. Trying all sorts of crazy things. Will let you know if I figure anything out!!!

    That looks amazing!! Does anyone know if the crepe tastes good with the oatmeal stuff because I’ve never used that in crepes.

      Hey Sophie! You can barely taste the bananas in the recipe. Here’s a tip: use unripened bananas or barely ripened ones because allt he flavor and aromas come from when the banana turns yellow! Hope I helped… 🙂

    Hey Cassey! My almost 2 year old daughter and I ate your delicious crepe recipe yesterday and we loved it!! It was so easy and tasted so healthy 🙂 thanks!

    Hey Cassey! I made these this morning for my mom – they were so good. I made them small so I was able to make four. 🙂 I took a picture for you. She doesn’t like yogurt, but the two on top are covered in strawberry sauce.

    So great! But i’d love the recipe of the quesedillas you put on fb some days ago!! Those looked so delish!! 🙂

    1. Elena says:

      I would also love to see your healthy quesadilla recipe!

  7. Cassie says:

    Made these this morning – by far my most favourite recipe I’ve gotten from you, Cassey!!! Thank you!

  8. Hannah says:

    In Asia, another popular topping alternative to tapioca pearls is aloe vera cubes. They still give you something chew on, but aren’t as chewy. Personally, I like aloe vera bits so much more because it’s healthier, great for the skin, and it tastes sweet! 🙂

  9. Elaine says:

    Can’t wait to try your healthy version of the Bubble Tea, Cassey <3

  10. Emma says:

    I tried to make these today. I couldn’t get them to flip properly, so they didn’t turn out like crepes. But they tasted really good 😀

  11. Louise S. says:

    Hi! I want to make these, but I don’t know what 1 serving is referring to? How much is it in gram, ounce or any other measurement? 🙂

  12. Pinja says:

    Cassey OMG! These were amazing 🙂 i loved them, my sister loved them and even my dad asked were there more! I’ll be doing more these and then my mom and other sister can taste them too! Love from Finland

  13. Wei Chin says:

    Epic Cassey! You need to go make this for your mummy. You need to go make this for your daddy. You need to make this for your family. LOL. XD Haha… LOL… but I have a feeling I will go make this after my exams are over. XD

  14. Aishwarya Iyer says:

    Hey Cassey,
    I am from India and follow your blog religiously, but have never quiet interacted on it. Must tell you.. I LOVE YOU woman 😉 .love your energy is just so infectious and You made PAIN feel so good for me. hehe!
    Anyway…a suggestion…how bout substituting tapioca pearls with “basil seeds”. We use that quiet a bit here in India.
    Much love
    Aish.

    1. V Fanai says:

      woah! you’re an Indian too?!?!? I haven’t seen much Indians being a part of the blogilates community! Its nice to know I’m not the only one 🙂

      1. Aishwarya Iyer says:

        Haha yess…That was exactly my thought 😉 ..
        Cassey deserves all the love from all across 😀 !!

  15. Julia Yohe says:

  16. Solène says:

    Oh God, I’m definitely having this for breakfast tomorrow. Les crèpes c’est toute ma vie.

  17. Mer says:

    Bubble tea!!! One of my favorite, favorite treats! Can’t wait to see what you figure out!

  18. Yuming says:

    Yayy I hope you figure out a good and healthy substitute for tapioca pearls Cassey! I can try to be healthy as much as possible but bubble tea is something I’ve never been truly able to forego. If you can make it healthy you’d be the star of my life <3 (not that you aren't already!)

  19. Lauren says:

    Cassey you should make butter biscuits or birthday cake next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Lauren says:

    For the past 6 months I’ve been trying to lose weight. So far I’ve lost 11 pounds, which I know is very little for that long but my main concern is I’ve hit a huge plateau, as in I haven’t lost weight in like one month and gained 2 pounds!! I think one reason is I’m not eating enough calories, but I’ve had a really hard time finding calorie dense meals that are still healthy. I heard that each meal should be around 400 calories, but mine are usually 250 and then I feel like I have to snack to reach my calorie goal. Any meal ideas? It would really help. For reference I’m 5’4″ and weigh about 128 pounds. Thanks!

    1. Cassie says:

      Woah woah woah. A few questions first 1) how much are you TRYING to lose. I am 5’4″ as well and am well aware of the goal weights and healthy bmi for women of my height, and you are WELL within them. I started out at 165 lbs and my goal was 125. I have gained a few back since to hit 128, and I am not concerned at ALL. It is literally impossible for me to lose past 125 because it is what I like to call my body’s “happy weight”. The reason you may not be losing any more is because you, too may have hit your body’s happy weight. Going under this weight may not be healthy for your body, and (depending on how much you want to lose) may actually put you in the “underweight” bmi, which is not good for you!!! This may also explain the “slow” loss. As you get closer to a healthy weight (and you ARE a healthy weight), it becomes harder and harder to lose weight. You were already starting just at 11 lbs above a happy weight, so it would indeed take a bit longer to lose any weight from there.
      2) Are you working out? Heavy workouts – including Blogilates!! – when you’re already at a healthy bmi will help you to GAIN MUSCLE. Which means that these two pounds you’ve gained probably are healthy muscle weight, and NOT FAT!

      My suggestion to you would be to look at yourself in the mirror, take pictures, etc. Give yourself a visual representation of how you look. Chances are if you compare them to pictures from 6 months ago, not only will you look thinner (11 lbs is a LOT on a 5’4″ girl, trust me!!), but you’ll probably notice that despite gaining 2 lbs on the scale, your body looks tighter and leaner and more fit and healthy. Trust me, you’re at a great weight!! Toning is the way to go! And don’t worry if that number climbs when its muscle gain – that’s just you getting STRONGER!!!!

    These crepes would be a great addition to a weekend brunch, thanks Cassey, I have a request for a future episode: veggie burgers. I’ve tried a few recipes but have never found anything so good that it kept me from buying the frozen ones at the store. They’re so expensive to buy regularly and I’m sure most of them have weird additives, so if you have a yummy homemade alternative that would be great.

    By the way, yesterday’s butt/thigh videos were by thr far the toughest series of the calendar for me.. Without the calendar I would have stopped after 1 or 2 but knowing you put them all together motivated me to finish. Thank you for your work on that particular instrument of torture 😉

  22. Anna-Maria says:

    Ahhhh that man made me a crepe last year! He is so nice! (It’s at Montmartre in Paris btw)

  23. Kristin says:

    I suppose you could add some unsweetened cocoa to the crepe batter to make chocolate ones!

  24. Mirela says:

    Cassey, you are awesome! Your workouts, your recipes…everything you make is so inspiring! Thank you for everything, keep up the amazing work! ^___^
    What you should healthify..what about…. bread? :3
    Have an awesome day! ^^

    1. PoppyKnight says:

      Have you tried Ezekiel bread?

  25. hannahz14 says:

    Wow! You’re so creative, amazing! Keep up the good work!

  26. Sierra Opper says:

    Burgers, fries, and milkshakes! My favorite YOLO meal is a bleu cheese burger, truffle fries, and salted caramel milkshake…Do you think you can make that cheap and clean?

  27. Julie says:

    Do you know the best egg replacer to make these vegan? Love the idea but I don’t eat eggs!

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Julie, I’m vegan so I don’t eat eggs either 🙂
      I think a flax “egg” would work well in this recipe, but I would also add a little baking powder (low sodium, if possible) to help make them fluffier. I think I’m going to try these on my next rest day so will report back if it works!

  28. eveny says:

    cassey i love this recipe!!!! im gonna try it i cant wait im in love with all your recipes n workout videos thank you so much

  29. Jen Velez says:

    Cassey, you mentioned trying to make bubble tea. I’m not really sure what that is. But you mentioned trying to replicate tapioca pearls. The closest thing I can think of is Chia Seeds. They are often used in the vegan community as a way to make pudding. I’ve seen them on the OhSheGlows blog all the time. I hope that helps! You’re crepes look beautiful! I think I would make a banana, cashew or maybe even a coconut cream to put on top of them. (I don’t do yogurt). : )

    1. Jenny says:

      Omigosh. GENIUS!!!!

    2. Paola G says:

      The only thing is… chia seeds aren’t exactly ‘cheap’ 🙁
