Easy Recipe: Whole Wheat Crepes Filled with Apples

During the Fall there is something to be said about recipes that involve apples. Picking apples from the trees or the smell of a freshly baked warm apple pie on a cold day really seems to enhance the cooler weather season.  Since my family and I enjoy apples, I was excited to try a new recipe that incorporated one of our favorite fruits.  This recipe calls for whole wheat flour, which is a healthier alternative to regular white flour.

Creating tasty and nutritious foods is something I’m trying to accomplish for my family.  For example, drinking low-fat or fat-free white or flavored milk helps kids get the 3 daily servings of milk recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and provides three of the four “nutrients of concern” that children do not get enough of – calcium, potassium and vitamin D.  The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans acknowledges milk and dairy foods’ contribution to bone health and improvement of diet quality.

Crepes are essentially a very thin pancake that is a popular delicacy for many European countries, especially France.  It can be made with everything from cheese to fruit fillings is a wonderful breakfast or brunch dish.

The following variation of crepes, Whole Wheat Crepes Filled with Apples, is derived from www.eligeleche.com and would be a welcome new dish for families and overnight guests:
