Blissfully Healthy Crepes

Here's my present for you this coming weekend (or tomorrow if you're going to be stuck at home because of the bitter weather) & New Year! Get gourmet and feel like you're eating something really indulgent: "No Guilt Blissful Crepes!" They are around 200-250 calories for two crepes! And it's filling!

INGREDIENTS: makes about 6 crepes (double if you need to)
Crepe batter:
1 cup flour
3/4 cup low fat milk
3/4 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs sugar (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
4 tbs egg whites
spray oil for pan

1 Greek yogurt (blueberry)--trust me, don't swap for a low-fat yogurt. The thick and creamy consistency is what makes it so indulgent.
Handful of Blueberries
Granola (optional)
Low-fat whipped cream topping (like Reddi-whip)

Mix dry and wet batter ingredients separately and whisk together until smooth. Using a medium-sized skillet, spray with oil and heat on medium. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and *quickly* swirl until you form a very large pancake-like size crepe that fills the entire skillet. Heat for a minute or so until lightly golden and flip. Cook for a minute or less on the second size.
Let the crepe cool. Using a spoon, spread half a cup of yogurt onto each crepe. Sprinkle blueberries on top of the yogurt and fold the ends of the crepe together like a taco. Spray a little whipped creme on the top and sprinkle with a little bit of granola.
Additional fillers or topping ideas for breakfast crepes:
-Other flavored greek yogurt
-Nutella Spread
-Low-fat peanut butter
-Butter whipped with berries or lemon juice/zest. 

Bon Appetite and happy impressing your family. My husband told me he thought he woke up in Paris for a second. You can get creative and choose a different fruit theme.

Sorry, no knitting updates. I'm just about done with the pink scarf, but haven't really touched it today since we've been celebrating my husband's birthday. Photos tomorrow. 
It's supposed to get up to negative 40 tomorrow and they've been cancelling school and other businesses left and right. How about you?
