Apple Crepes


Our family has a hot breakfast a couple times a week. And by hot breakfast I mean either french toast, waffles or pancakes and all of these include eggs and usually bacon and occasionally sausage. We top ours with my favorite buttermilk syrup and fruit. And ps I am a HUUUUGE fan of Zaycon's Bacon! You need to try it out. But anyways back to breakfast...so on the weeks where I feel like I have made the same type of breakfast over and over again I try to throw in something a little different and that is where these crepes came into play. I will have to admit that I think my family is more of a waffle type of people but crepes sure are fun!

A few months back I received a fun package from Crunch Pak that my kids went absolutely nuts over! My kids (and I) love their snack packs and how portable they are. As a family with young kids who travel a lot and are always on the go Crunch Pak's products have become a staple in our home. But not only do they have amazing healthy snacks they also have pre-packaged apples that are great for cooking! A few months ago I created a few different recipes for them using their apples. You can check them out below! And then the new yummy recipe for apple crepes are below that!

Apple Crepes



Crepes:
2 cups flour
4 eggs
1 cup water
1 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
oil

In a large mixing bowl mix together the flour and eggs. Slowly add the water and milk. Then add the melted butter and salt and sugar. Mix until smooth. Heat up pan to medium high heat. Grab a 1/4 to 1/3 measuring cup and pour batter into pan and swirl and tilt the pan until the batter covers the bottom of your pan. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes and then flip and cook on the other side about the same amount of time. Watch these closely and when they begin to turn lightly brown flip or remove if you have already cooked the other side.

Apple Filling:
3 cups crunch pak sweet or tart apples, chopped
3 heaping Tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
lemon zest
1 Tablespoon butter
powdered sugar optional
whipped cream optional

Put chopped Crunch Pak apples in a bowl and add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon zest let sit for 20 minutes to marinate (then add to skillet) or if you don't have time just grab a skillet add the butter and then add apples then the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon zest. Stir well and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

To assemble:
Grab a crepe and place a few spoonfuls of the apple filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and whipped cream. Roll up tight and then add more powdered sugar, whipped cream, and a spoonful of apple filling.
