Clean Eating Strawberry Basil Crepes

February 10, 2019Johnfitt

Who’s ready for a light and tasty breakfast recipe? With the weather warming up we have been experimenting with easy recipes that won’t heat the house up. Now, we love a good Egg Casserole, some Prune Muffins, Potato Pancakes or Raspberry French Toast Casserole but we have been feeling the need for something a bit more cool.

We so enjoyed the divine flavor of our Strawberry Basil Ice Cream that we decided to play with that delicious combo some more. Not only do they go fabulously together but they also have some wonderful healthy benefits!

Strawberries are an amazing source of antioxidants, can help stabilize blood sugar levels, are heart healthy and they are anti-inflammatory.

Basil is also anti-inflammatory, is anti-bacterial, heart healthy and is a great source for vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A and manganese.

We wrap this up in a Whole Wheat Sourdough Crepe that is simply amazing! Whole Wheat can help with weight control, reduce chronic inflammation, lower risk of type 2 diabetes, and support digestive health.

If you are looking for an extra good treat you can drizzle the same yummy Creamy Maple Spread we put over our German Pancakes. It really makes everything it touches taste divine!

Make sure you use organic ingredients where possible for optimal nutrition. Now, Let’s eat!

Ingredients

1 cup sourdough starter
2 Tbs. melted butter
½ tsp. Real Salt
2-3 eggs

Directions

Whisk melted butter into the starter. Add salt and enough eggs to make a very thin batter. Mix well. Pour onto a hot Lodge skillet. Lift pan by handle and carefully roll the pan around to thin batter. Cook until set. Flip and cook until very light brown.

Strawberry Basil Filling

Ingredients

2 cups sliced strawberries
2 Tbs. basil, finely chopped
1-2 Tbs. maple syrup

Directions

Gently combine all ingredients. Spoon into a Whole Wheat Sourdough Crepe, roll and enjoy!
