Feeling a bit adventurous in the kitchen? No worries, I’ve got options for you! Swap out the self-rising flour, experiment with gluten-free alternatives, or throw in some flavored protein powder for an extra twist. The kitchen is your playground, my friend!
- Gluten-Free Alternative: Swap the self-rising flour with a gluten-free alternative for those seeking a gluten-free version. This ensures these high-protein crepes remain inclusive for various dietary preferences.
- Flavored Protein Powder: Inject a burst of flavor by experimenting with different flavored protein powders. Whether it’s vanilla, chocolate, or even a fruity twist, this substitution allows for a creative twist in the crepe batter. But me mindful of it’s sweetness, adjust the syrup accordingly.
- Regular Milk: If you prefer a classic touch, feel free to substitute protein plant milk with regular milk. This switch maintains the creamy consistency while accommodating personal taste preferences.
- Brewed Coffee: If cold brew concentrate is not at your disposal, brewed coffee can step in to still give you that delicious coffee-infused notes. Ensure it’s strong enough to maintain the robust coffee flavor in both the batter and filling.
Feel free to mix and match these substitutions to create a customized version of these Tiramisu Crepes that suits your palate. The kitchen is your playground – let your creativity shine!

How to Make Your High-Protein Tiramisu Crepes
Time to roll up our sleeves and dive into the step-by-step process of crafting these delectable, quick and easy, High-Protein Tiramisu Crepes. Follow along, and let the kitchen magic unfold:
Whisk & Combine
In a mixing bowl, crack open the large brown egg. Whisk it until it’s light and frothy. Pour in the 160ml of protein plant milk for that dairy-free protein boost, followed by the 20ml of robust cold brew concentrate infusing a coffee kick.
Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract for sweetness and aroma, followed by the unflavored protein powder (28g or 1 scoop from Quest) to amp up the protein content. Incorporate the self-rising flour (15g from King Arthur) for that perfect light and airy texture.
Drizzle in 10ml of sugar-free syrup (Mrs Butterworths) to balance the sweetness without the guilt. Whisk until you have a smooth batter that tantalizes the senses.
Low and Golden
Heat up a medium nonstick pan and give it a quick spray with coconut oil. Pour 1/4th of the batter into the pan on low heat, moving the pan around to create a large, thin circle.
Cook until bubbles appear on the surface, then carefully flip the crepe to achieve a delightful golden hue on both sides.
Yogurt Filling Magic
While the crepes are cooking, let’s whip up the velvety yogurt filling. In a small bowl, mix 85g of nonfat Greek yogurt (Siggi’s), 10ml of cold brew concentrate, and 10ml of sugar-free syrup. Ensure a thorough blend to create a creamy, coffee-infused filling.
Once the crepes are ready, spread the yogurt filling evenly inside each one. Roll them up, leaving a small dollop of the filling behind for the finishing touch.
Top the crepes with the remaining yogurt dollop, an additional drizzle of sugar-free syrup, and a generous sprinkle of cacao powder (1/2 tbsp). This final touch adds a visual and flavorful enhancement to your creation.
Now, step back and admire your culinary prowess. You’ve just mastered the art of creating High Protein Tiramisu Crepes – a breakfast masterpiece that’s both delightful and nutritious. Enjoy every creamy, coffee-infused bite!
Tips and Tricks
Ready to take your crepe game to legendary status? Low heat is your golden ticket to perfection. Skillfully move that pan for thin, circular crepes, and when it comes to toppings, let your creativity soar – it’s a topping wonderland of endless possibilities!
- Cook on Low Heat: Optimal cooking on low heat ensures a golden finish without the risk of overcooking, preserving the delicate texture.
- Circular Motions: Strategic movement of the pan is key to creating thin, circular crepes, replicating the authenticity of French crepe-making.
- Toppings Wonderland: The freedom to customize toppings allows you to tailor the crepes to your unique taste preferences, creating a breakfast masterpiece.
Now, for the aftermath – storage. Pop any leftovers into an airtight container in the fridge, and when the crepe craving hits again (which it will), a quick warm-up in the pan or microwave will do the trick. Breakfast is served!
- Refrigeration: Allow any remaining crepes to cool to room temperature. Place the cooled crepes in an airtight container, ensuring they are not excessively stacked. Store the container in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
- Reheating: When ready to enjoy again, gently reheat in a nonstick pan or microwave, using short intervals. For freezing, freeze crepes individually and add the filling during reheating for a fresh and creamy experience.
