Prep time: 1 hour

Cook time: 10 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

1/2 cup fat-free milk

2 eggs

1 tablespoon butter, melted

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 cup whole-wheat flour

4 tablespoons Nutella

2 cups fresh mixed berries

  1. In a blender, place the milk, egg, butter, and salt, and pulse until blended.

  2. Gently pour the flour into the blender in batches, and process until completely smooth. Keeping the lid on the blender, place the batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

  3. Heat a 7-inch skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray.

  4. Place 2 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet and tip the skillet to allow the batter to coat the pan. The crepes will be very thin.

  5. Cook for about 1 minute, until golden. Flip the crepe over with a spatula and continue cooking for 30 seconds. Transfer the crepe to a plate.

  6. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 with the remaining batter to make a total of 8 crepes.

  7. Place a crepe on a flat surface, and spread 1/2 tablespoon of the Nutella evenly on the crepe.

  8. Place 1/4 cup of the berries in the center of the crepe. Fold the crepe to form a long roll, and cut it in half.

  9. Repeat Steps 7 and 8 with the remaining crepes.
