Ingredients

½ cup nonfat milk

2 tablespoons nonfat milk powder

4 egg whites


Directions

Combine in a bowl and whisk to mix well. Coat crepe pan with nonstick spray and heat on low to medium until hot. (a drop of water will sizzle)  Add one ounce of crepe mixture and tilt pan to distribute batter evenly over the bottom of the pan.  Cook over low heat until firm.  To finish the crepe, you can carefully turn it over or brown crepe under the broiler.  Turn crepe out onto baking pan to cool.  If you are making a lot, layer with waxed paper or parchment to keep crepes from sticking together.

These can be filled with The Oaks jam of your choice: apricot, blueberry, raspberry, or fresh fruit of your choice, cut up fairly small.  Strawberries with mango is delicious.  Garnish with nonfat yogurt flavored either with lemon curd or a touch of agave and vanilla extract.

You can make this recipe using one whole egg and two whites.  This doubles the calorie content and increases the fat from 2% to 23%, but it is still within the range for a healthful dessert.
