Squash may be an unusual choice for breakfast. However, when butternut squash is blended with yogurt and sweetened with just a touch of honey, it makes a perfect custard-like filling for the inside of crepes. Crepes made with an almond flour base provide a nice nutty flavor that compliments the earthy squash. Adding a ripe banana to the crepe batter provides structure and a hint of natural sweetness for a wholesome breakfast without a lot of added sugar.

 

The smooth, silky filling begins with a pre-cooked butternut squash. Pureeing the squash with Greek yogurt delivers a probiotic protein boost to your breakfast. This nutrient packed breakfast will keep you feeling full and satisfied well past your mid-morning routine. Top these delicious crepes with a sprinkle of chopped nuts to provide additional protein and healthy fats while adding a delightful crunch to your morning feast.
