Cinnamon Crepes with Peanut Butter Cream Filling

Cinnamon Crepes with Peanut Butter Cream Filling

Serves: Makes 2 crepes (can be 1 or 2 servings)

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and took some time to relax! The boyfriend and I are still away in Aruba (I am sitting here writing this and it is only July 31st, so hopefully we will have been enjoying some of the warm sunshine!). It is always nice to escape your normal surroundings and enjoy some relaxing time away! Were you able to get away for a few days this summer? I hope so! It’s great to rejuvenate your mind and body!

Today’s recipe reminds me of some of the delicious food that you see on brunch menus when you go away. The always delicious sounding, crepe. Yet, as most of us know, they are not usually so healthy! So, why not revamp them and enjoy a ‘vacation’ like treat any day of the week??

Fit Ingredients:

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp stevia
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ?
  • 2 tbs (13g) ground flax
  • 1/2c (4oz) low sodium, fat free ricotta (can sub cottage cheese)
  • 2tbs (15g) peanut flour (or pb2)
  • 1 tsp stevia
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2tsp water (or coconut milk, as needed)


Spray a non stick skillet with cooking spray. In a bowl, mix your ricotta, peanut flour, stevia and vanilla extract until it is well blended and creamy (add water/milk to reach your desired consistency)! Place in the refrigerator. In a second bowl, whisk your egg whites and 1/2tsp vanilla extract. Mix in your stevia, cinnamon and ground flax. Heat your skillet over medium heat. Pour half the batter into the pan and cook for 2 minutes, flip the crepe (gently) and cook for an additional 1 minute. Repeat with the second half of your batter. Place the crepes on a plate and scoop half of your ricotta cream down the center of each. Roll the crepes and top with berries, cacao nibs, greek yogurt, anything you’d like!

I topped mine with strawberries and cacao nibs for the perfect sweet combination! You can even make a larger batch and create a ‘build your own crepe bar’ like I did! You could put out a variety of toppings and allow your guests to fill and top theirs however they choose! :)

My crepe bar! 🙂
