Peanut Butter and Jelly Crepes
Good morning! I've got a fun and different lunch idea for you! Whether you are out of bread and can't make a sandwich, or your kids are tired of the same old PB&J, these crepes just might be your answer!
With a typical recipe for crepes, some peanut butter, jelly, and cream cheese, we made some easy to eat, roll-up sandwiches, that do well packed in a lunch bag, or eaten right away.
|Peanut Butter and Jelly Crepes||
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 teaspoons butter, melted
- 1 1/2 TBL light cream cheese (softened)
- 1 TBL all natural peanut butter
- 1 TBLHomemade or all fruit jam
- In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, milk, butter and eggs; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- In an 8-inch nonstick skillet, spray with cooking spray. Stir batter; pour about 2 tablespoons into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack.
- Repeat with remaining batter, spray skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper on paper towels in between.
- In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, peanut butter, and jelly until well combined. Spread on cooled crepes and roll, fold, or stack.
