I recently saw a movie, where Batman uses a dehydrator to shrink food in size. He says this allows him to eat high calorie and nutrient filled meals on the go. Well, that is an idea. Here is a simpler way for you to have a quick, filling and nutritious meal – Whey Protein Crepes.
You can whip up these high protein delicacies in minutes. And they are very filling (we know 😉 ). So you will be having a healthy meal that will make your mother happy. Also, a few tweaks here and there and you have added your own flavour to these whey protein crepes.
I recently made these for breakfast on Sunday and boy did they vanish from the plates! We are more into savoury breakfasts, like poha, dosa, upma etc. But these whey protein crepes were a pleasant change and are something we can have on a regular basis.
The whey protein powder I used is unflavoured, so you can also make savory whey protein crepes, or simple crepes to go with a quick stir-fry, like mushroom and baby corn or french beans and onion (these two happen to be my favourites!)
What surprised me when I first started using whey protein powder is that it is not just useful for athletes and fitness enthusiasts but can also be used for weight loss. When paired with fruits and/or milk (dairy, coconut, almond, soy) to make smoothies (recipes coming soon!), it is very filling and can aid in weight loss, with exercise and some self-discipline 🙂
Add the whey protein powder, egg whites and half of the cinnamon powder to a bowl and whip it up.
Heat a pan over a medium flame and drop half a tablespoon of coconut oil.
Keeping the flame medium, pour half of the whey protein batter. Spread it to make the crepe round-ish, but don't make it too thin.
Cook each side for 30-40 seconds until light brown, over a medium flame. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
Top the crepes with sliced bananas, drizzle some honey and sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon powder. Enjoy!
