Berry Crunchy Crepes
Bon Appétit, these crepes are packed full of sweet berries with a hint of orange and topped with a crunchy crumble.
- 125 ml or 1/2 cup All-Bran Buds* cereal
- 3 eggs
- 300 ml or 1 1/4 cups 1% milk
- 5 ml or 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 0.5 ml or 1/8 tsp salt
- 175 ml or 3/4 cup All-Bran Buds* cereal
- 125 ml or 1/2 cup whole wheat or all purpose flour
- 15 ml or 1 tbsp granulated sugar
- 50 ml or 1/4 cup melted butter, divided
- n/a Filling
- 750 ml or 3 cups mixed berries
- 15 ml or 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 15 ml or 1 tbsp orange juice
- n/a Topping
- 125 ml or 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 125 ml or 1/2 cup low fat lemon yogurt
- 2 ml or 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 50 ml or 1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
- In a large bowl mix together eggs, milk and vanilla. Whisk in flour, cereal, sugar and 30 ml (2 tbsp) of the butter (crepe mixture should have a watery pancake batter-like consistency). Cover, refrigerate and let rest for at least one hour or up to one day. (This allows the gluten in the flour to relax and prevents the crepes from being “tough”)
- In an 8-inch (20 cm) non-stick pan or crepe pan, use a pastry brush to apply 5 ml (1 tsp) of the melted butter. Pour 50 ml (¼ cup) of the batter to pan and lift and swirl pan to spread batter evenly. Cook crepe until golden brown on bottom, about 1 minute. Flip and cook 30 seconds more. Stack crepes between layers of wax paper and keep warm.
- In bowl, combine berries, maple syrup and orange juice. Let sit for 15 minutes, or up to one day, stirring occasionally.
- In a small bowl, mix together cereal, maple syrup, cinnamon and pecans.
Place crepes on a tray. Spoon 60 ml (¼ cup) of the filling in centre of each crepe, fold crepe over to enclose filling. Repeat with remaining crepes and divide over 4 plates. Spoon topping over crepes. Serve immediately with a dollop of lemon yogurt.
Variations: Substitute the berries with sliced bananas and chocolate hazelnut spread.

What's psyllium fibre?
Psyllium fibre is a type of “soluble fibre” that forms a gel in the digestive system. This traps some of the cholesterol and removes it from the body.
Most Canadians only get about half of the recommended fibre per day§
Did you know fibre needs water to work effectively? Try to get at least 9 cups of fluids every day.
