Apple Cinnamon Crepes – Healthy Option

Luscious apple cinnamon crepes are a wow dessert that will impress your guests and leave smiles on their faces!

The Backstory: Every now and then I love to go all out and whip up a wow dish that’s a real showstopper for my friends and family. Crepes are definitely that kind of dish, and truth be told, they’re not that hard to make. Having all your ingredients prepped and ready to go is key, but once you’ve done that, you’re good to go. My recipe lightens up traditional crepes but keeps the flavor full-on, with a combination of delicious fall flavors and spices. Fresh apples, apple pie filling and cinnamon combine for a mouth-watering filling that’s truly delicious. I hope you’ll try this recipe and see for yourself just what you can do in the kitchen!
