This is a recipe I adapted, when I wanted to get more fiber in our diet. You will be amazed at how light these crepes are! Nice breakfast change.

- Note: It is important that your crepe batter is runny, otherwise your crepes with be heavy and thick.
- Just add a little water to the batter as you are cooking them, as it tends to thicken.

- Heat on low heat until hot but not boiling, add rum extract.
- Place a tablespoon of filling in center of each crepe and roll up, then placing seam side down.

- This was designed as a low fat, low cal recipe so it doesn't have as much filling as you might prefer.
