Recipe: Peachy Yogurt & Granola Crepes
This recipe for peachy yogurt and granola crepes was just one of my inventions I came up with when I was fooling around in the kitchen trying to come up with a new “Springy” filling for a Sunday morning breakfast crepe. I love fruit and yogurt… and I especially like granola with it… adds just the right amount of crunch…. so I decided to start with those ingredients. I kept it simple…
I always have vanilla non-fat yogurt on hand… you can use the regular yogurt or even non-fat light if you want to save on calories.
The peaches can be fresh, canned or frozen… if you use fresh.. then you will need about 2 tablespoons of some kind of juice to add to the granola bits… I would stick to an orange juice or an orange juice mixture juice…
You can add other fruits into this… raspberries go extremely well… as does strawberries…
For my crepe recipe… you can go to my previous Crepe Recipe post. I also previously posted Tips on Crepe Making that you may want to read.
If you decide to make them the morning you use them… you can do a handy little prep ahead… I sometimes prepare the dry ingredients ahead and put it in a Zip Loc bag… saves you time by sifting the flour ahead… also makes that much less clean-up in the morning.
You can make the crepes and the filling ahead… but it really only takes about 45 minutes beginning to end to do these up… and 30 minutes of that time is for letting the batter “rest”. See my Tip of the Day about Making the Crepes Ahead.
Peachy Yogurt & Granola Crepes
All you need:
Vanilla non-fat yogurt
Peaches (fresh, frozen or canned), sliced
Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars (I used Oats ‘N Honey flavor)
Orange juice (if you use fresh peaches)
All you need to do:
Prepare crepes according to my crepe recipe.
In a mini processor chop 1 package (they contain two bars) granola bars. …or place in a plastic storage bag and crumble with a mallet. 1 package should be enough for 4 crepes.
Place chopped granola bars in a small bowl…
Add 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons juice from the can of peaches to the granola… or if you used frozen… 2 tablespoons of the thawed peach juice…. or if you used fresh peaches… use 2 tablespoons orange juice. Mix with a fork.
Note: Use 2 tablespoons honey and 2 tablespoons juice per package of granola bars. If you need more bars… then up the quantities of honey and juice.
Place the crepe on a plate…. Put yogurt down the middle (about 3 tablespoons).
Place about 3 peach slices over the yogurt.
Sprinkle the granola mixture over the peaches.
Fold the sides of the crepe over.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar… and serve immediately.
Note: Make sure you sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving… as the sugar will be absorbed into the crepe… you can always add more… but… best to do it just before serving.
