30 Second Low-Carb Microwave Chia Crepes
Crepes are sometimes considered difficult to make, but there's an easy way. It is almost too easy. This method that our chef uses takes just 30 seconds per crepe in the microwave to make and the results are fantastic and impressive! They're four ingredients to make, healthy, and fast! But, before we get into the simple basics of chia crepes, let's talk nutrition.
30-Second Microwave Chia Crepes
1/8 tsp. Salt
2 Tbs. Specialty Grains White Chia Seed
½ tsp almond extract
1 cup Low fat cottage cheese or Ricotta
10-15 drops Liquid Stevia
1 tsp. Vanilla
Honey Balsamic Glazed Spiced Oranges and Berries
½ cup fresh sliced Strawberries
1 cup Orange Supreme (slices without membrane)
2 Tbsp. Raw Honey
¼ tsp allspice
Dash of ground cardamom, ground
Crack three eggs into a small food processor or blender.
Add the salt, chia seeds and almond extract. Puree until smooth (this should take 30 seconds or less).
Place a small 6-inch, square piece of parchment paper on the glass microwave disk or a flat, microwave-safe plate. Pour 2 heaping tablespoons of the crepe batter directly on the parchment paper and using the bottom of a spoon, gently but quickly spread the mixture evenly to form a small, thin circle about 4 inches in diameter.
Microwave for 25-30 seconds, until the center of the crepe is fully cooked. Allow to cool on the parchment paper before trying to remove the crepe. This recipe will yield about 6 crepes.
In a separate bowl, combine the cottage cheese filling ingredients. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the filing the middle of the crepe and fold in each.
Spiced Oranges and Berries
Combine the berries, honey, oranges, and spice in a small bowl. Top the finished filled crepes with berry mixture. Drizzle with high quality balsamic vinegar to taste. May we suggest our chef's absolute favorite balsamic, Mia Bella? It is amazing! Sprinkle with additional chia seed if desired.
