A serving of protein and carbs at every meal is my goal! Carbohydrates and protein work together to minimize my cravings, fuel my workouts, build muscle, balance blood sugar (The Diabetes recommendations here are supported)Help me think better!
I first realized the benefits to eating a healthy diet that included a balanced amount of carbs as well as protein during my first phase. “Body For Life”. I’m honestly still a HUGE fan of that program. (You can see my Body for Life menu plan here).
What I discovered was that protein is necessary to build muscle for bodybuilding and carbs are essential to running. I don’t want to miss out on either of these.
Studies show that eating a balanced amount of protein and carbs at each meal can work in concert. Both help our bodies get maximum nutrition from them when they are fueled with both.
This recipe does all of that and more. A dessert with benefits!

Are Protein Crepes Low in Carbohydrates?
This depends on the ingredients that you use in your recipe. This recipe isn’t because I’ve used some important carb sources. However, if you want a protein crepe that’s ALL protein, check out my 2 ingredient protein crepe recipe here with just protein powder and egg whites. .
What’s the difference between a crepe and a pancake?
When making pancakes, I like them to be fluffy and hearty. Crepes, however, are more like a tortilla and are much thinner and more flexible than pancakes.
What protein powder is best for these crepes,
These crepes do not contain protein powder. So, it really doesn’t matter what type you use. The protein powder can be added to yogurt and used as a filling. I love this for these protein crepes because you KNOW the crepe itself won’t have any weird textures.
I used Optimum Nutrition Vanilla protein (which I purchased at Costco). That’s important to know because the calories and macros are different for different protein powders. Clean Simple Eats powders contain more carbs than Optimum nutrition powders.
