In collaboration with Nutri-Brex 5 Ways Gluten-Free Granola.
When it comes to fitness, I like to get my daily workouts done first thing in the morning before I have breakfast. That’s when I’m feeling bright, fresh and energetic and I can put my all into my routine.
The thing is with a morning workout is that you end up absolutely famished and needing a quick breakfast afterwards. I quite often turn to these high protein crepes for a lower calorie breakfast that’s going to provide the building blocks for muscle growth and repair, as well as keep me feeling full until lunchtime.
These crepes tick all those boxes.
This recipe is really quick and easy to make, just three ingredients whizzed up in a blender until smooth and then cooked for a few minutes in a non-stick pan.
Sometimes I eat them with fresh berries and maple syrup, sometimes I indulge with a few slices of smoked back bacon and sometimes I just spoon some strawberry jam on them, roll, and eat on the go.
NUTRI-BREX GLUTEN-FREE GRANOLA
Nutri-Brex is an award-winning gluten-free brand who have recently expanded their range to include 5 Ways Granola. Their hazelnut, coconut and quinoa variety features hazelnut pieces, flaked quinoa and toasted coconut as well as fine-cut oats, while their honey, almond and seeds variety features fine-cut oats, honey, golden linseeds, flaked almonds and sunflower seeds. Either work really well in this gluten-free crepes recipe.
Nutri-Brex granola can be used in a minimum of five different ways:
- GRANOLA: serve Nutri-Brex with milk or yoghurt for a traditional crunchy granola breakfast
- PORRIDGE: simply add milk and microwave or cook on the hob for a delicious hot breakfast on these cold Autumn mornings
- TOPPING: sprinkle over your favourite fruit, or even over some peanut butter and gluten-free toast
- BIRCHER: mix with yoghurt, grated apple, a splash of apple juice and some milk and leave overnight for a delicious breakfast in the morning
- SMOOTHIE: blend with your favourite fruit, ice and a dollop of natural yoghurt for a fast and filling start to the day
