Pumpkin Spiced Crepes with Pumpkin Butter




The taste of pumpkin pie for breakfast without the guilt? Every bite of these low fat crepes seasoned with cinnamon and pumpkin spice will fill your palate with the taste of Autumn. Crepes can be eaten for breakfast or dessert, and they are easy to make. Put all the ingredients in the blender to make the batter, then cook each crepe in a 6-inch non stick pan on low heat. For those of you on Weight Watcher points, these are only 3 points plus each!

  4. I love that these crepes are healthy. I've never attempted to make crepes before (I can barely flip pancakes and definitely can't flip eggs). Sort of intimidating, but yours look delicious!

  10. Pumpkin season is here, and yes, a festival in my mouth too!! I should mention, the batter can be refrigerated for up to 3 days if you don't use it all the first day. It takes less than 5 minutes the next day to whip up some crepes for the kids. My daughter fills hers with jelly!

  22. Do u think i can make them gluten free and dairy free? I would use almond milk instead. All of your recipes have been delicious! Im allergic to soy, dairy, and gluten so i make a few changes, but they all turn out great!

  24. Can these be assembled befofe dinner then served after or do you think it will get soggy? Would it be better to make the crepes before dinner and assemble right before serving?

  25. These would be delicious with a caramelized banana filling...umm yum!

  26. Is the butter flavored cooking spray absolutely necessary? I have a regular cooking spray.
