Blueberry Egg White Crepes

Blueberry Egg White Crepes

These little gems are full of blueberry deliciousness, they are full of protein and fiber and they taste soooo good!! They are a great way to start your day if you have a few minutes in the morning.

INGREDIENTS

4 egg whites
1/2 cup zucchini squash ( shredded )
1 tablespoon Muscle Milk protein powder ( Vanilla Soy )
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS

nd water together until everything is incorporated

Allow to cook until the eggs are almost set. About 5 minutes, I get impatient here and make a mess. So just give it some time and let the eggs cook! Then lift the edges with a spatula just until you can either get the spatula all the way under it or until you can flip it with your fingers. Your choice. My family says that I have no feeling in my fingers. So whatever works for you.

Meanwhile, while that is cooking, mix the blueberries, water, and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Place in the microwave for about 1 minutes and stir. Then for about 30 seconds. Continue this until the mixture is thick and bubbly.

Allow the other side to finish cooking. This just takes a few seconds if you let the eggs cook almost all of the way through. Then remove from the pan and place on a plate. Place 1/2 of the blueberry mixture in the crepes and rolls up. Top with the remaining blueberries and powdered sugar. Enjoy!
