Breakfast Fail: Protein Crepes


I was off of school today for President’s Day, so I thought it would be a great idea to try a new breakfast recipe from my favorite healthy cookbook, Fixate. img_5689This book is seriously the great and every recipe I’ve made from it so far has been perfectly delicious. Unfortunately that was not the case today, because I had a serious #BreakfastFail!!

I attempted to make the “21 Day Fix Chocolate Protein Crepes” recipe made by Autumn Calabrese. I swear that I followed the recipe exactly as written and didn’t substitute ANY of the ingredients (although I am known for throwing together recipes with random items I have in the kitchen), but it didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to at. all.


I gathered all of the ingredients: a scoop of chocolate whey protein powder, a cup of greek yogurt, a cup of egg whites, 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and stevia to taste. I whipped all of the ingredients together, tasted the batter, and thought “wow, I am a really great chef…”


I poured 1/4 cup of the mix into the pan, on medium high heat as I was supposed to.


But once it came time to flip the crepe, I was met with a stressful failure of a situation. I threw away my first three crepes until I realized that it was just not going to work for me and…


I settled for this! LOL! A pile of chocolate crepey-ness topped with a cup of blueberries and blackberries. I mean, it was still delicious and healthy but I definitely didn’t make crepes.


Here’s the picture of what it was supposed to look like versus my monstrosity.


I topped it off with a little whipped cream and ate it while I hopped onto our team call. If anyone has ever successfully made crepes and can explain to me what led to my failure, please comment below because I clearly need all of the help I can get!
