    Not sure where the original version came from but this includes my tweaks over the years. The results are a lovely crepe than can used for entreés or desserts without having to worry about fat and calories. Bon appettit! For those following Weight Watchers, it's 2 points per serving.

      I used this recipe to meet the contest ingredient of prepared crepes during the RSC #12 contest. I omitted the vanilla and opted to use the butter flavoring since I was making Summer Harvest Dinner Crepes. I did think they were light and appreciated that they were so low in fat. Nice flavor and easy enough to prepare. Thanks Toni!

      These crepes were very light and delicious. I used these for a dessert I make, but also doubled the batter so I could reheat some for breakfast the next day. It is always great to find healthier ways to eat sweets. I will definately use again. Thanks for posting!
