Crepes are one of those very few foods that you can eat for breakfast, dinner or dessert! My sister loves to make crepes and they always turn out so delicious. So one day I watched how she made them and I realized why I thought they tasted so delicious. Butter. She swirls butter – a lot of butter – around in the pan before she pours the batter in. I could never think of them the same again. The good news is that crepes can be very healthy and still delicious.
These whole wheat crepes are the base of practically any kind of meal you want to make. Breakfast? No problem – fill with fruit and yogurt. Dinner? Perfect – fill with chicken and veggies. Dessert? Yum – fill with strawberries and Nutella. Are you drooling yet?

You can also make a savory crepe like this recipe. Yum. Any way you do it will be delicious.
