ULTRA LOW-CARB CREPES (1.0 GRAM PER CREPE) with STRAWBERRY SAUCE

 




ULTRA LOW-CARB CREPES (1.0 GRAM PER CREPE) with STRAWBERRY SAUCE

I love these crepes!  Spread them with cream cheese, fold them over or roll 'em up and cover them in a sweet strawberry sauce (OR use frozen unsweetened raspberries instead). Yummy romantic treat for a dessert or for breakfast on Valentine's Day!

3 oz regular cream cheese (90 g)
5 eggs
2 tbsp coconut flour (30 mL)
1 tbsp gluten-free oat flour, OR buckwheat flour for grain-free (15 mL)
Liquid sweetener to equal 4 tsp sugar (equivalent 2 packets sweetener of your choice) (20 mL)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
Strawberry Sauce:
3 cups frozen, unsweetened strawberries, slightly thawed, sliced (750 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia)  to equal 1/3  cup sugar, OR 
  granular sweetener equivalent
2 tbsp powdered erythritol (30 mL)

Sweetened Spreadable Cream cheese (for inside crepes)

In food processor, process cream cheese.  Add eggs; process.  Add coconut flour, oat flour, liquid sweetener and vanilla extract and process until smooth, scraping down the sides at least once and processing again.

Use 3 tbsp (45 mL) batter for each crepe and a small, nonstick 6-inch (15 cm) crepe pan (inside diameter).  Tilt pan to coat with batter.  Cook over medium heat.  Flip crepe when it is easy to slide a spatula underneath it.  Cook a few seconds on the second side.  Set aside in covered casserole dish and in the oven at a low heat of 190°F (88°C).  Brush pan with a little olive oil between every other crepe or so.

Strawberry Sauce:  In saucepan, place frozen, slightly-thawed sliced strawberries. Add liquid sweetener and powdered erythritol.  Bring to the boil and simmer until sauce has thickened sufficiently.  Serve strawberry sauce poured over individual crepes.  Or for a super-quick sauce, simply blend all sauce ingredients in blender.

Assembly:  Spread crepes with sweetened spreadable cream cheese, roll up and serve with strawberry sauce.
