In this post, I plan to reveal three separate and very delicious recipes – one of which is the aforementioned *secret* peanut butter flavor. I’ve been slaving day and night to get the correct proportions, but I think I’ve got it just right. Plain and simple, these crepes are incredible. Like traditional crepes, they are thin and crispy with the bonus of being super healthy. The way I prepare them here is just my most recent concoction (but probably the best).



Cinnamon & Sugar Apples:

Apple Pie Peanut Butter:


1. For the peanut butter, mix all ingredients together. For crepe batter, whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl. For cinnamon & sugar apples, place all ingredients in a pot on medium heat. Bring liquid to a boil and simmer on medium-low, stirring often, for about 10 minutes or until apples are soft. Cut the apple slices in half while cooking (also good for testing when they are done). Add liquid 1T at a time, as needed to keep a thin layer of sauce in the bottom.

2. Preheat a large skillet on medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pick up the pan and tilt it while pouring 1/4 cup of crepe batter into it with the other hand. As soon as the batter reaches the pan, twist the pan to cover the entire bottom with batter. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bottom is browned and crispy. Flip over and cook for 1 more minutes. Subsequent crepes will cook a good deal faster.

3. Spread peanut butter on the inside down the middle and fill with apples. Fold one side of the crepe over and roll up. Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.

Additional Info:

I’ve made this recipe several times, with and without the oil. I included it in the list because traditional crepe recipes call for it, but frankly I can’t tell the difference. I’ve included a lot of pictures because I couldn’t choose a favorite. Which picture do you think best shows off the crepes?

    Good blog and love the design. Anywhose welcome to the Sac Food Blog -Sphere. Would love to have ya’ come join us for one of our get togethers sometime! We actually do a lot, did a chocolate tasting and a volunteer day at the Sac Food Bank not too long ago.

    Anywhose, make sure to escape Davis and check out the food in Sac. I lived in Davis for 6 years, trust me, it’s good to escape once in a while. ;)

    you’ve really hit the nail on the head here. apple pie is hands-down my favorite dessert, and one of my go-to snacks is peanut butter on apple slices. throw in a delicate and delicious crepe and i’ll be out of commission for at least an hour. :)

    PERPETUAL. What a great word! And looking at your tower of peanut butter, I would imagine that’s a good description of the “Peanut Butter Boy.” I love it!

    Take care,

    I miss Trader Joe’s… They don’t have them in Texas. :(

    Nick – AH, so you ARE a true genious!!! I gotta tell you, when I found your site, I almost fainted I got so excited :) PB used to get me into serious trouble – I blame all my weight issues on it :) haha, but I’m learning that if I don’t deprive myself of it and allow myself a little every day, I can handle it.

    I guess I have you to thank for the PB hot dog idea then – and it held me over for like 5 hours! A new record :) Next, I need to try the banana pancake thinger-ma-jobs. YUM!

    Thanks for the “meme” nomination! I’ll definitely do it – it just might be a little while because I’m still figuring out all this blog stuff and don’t know how to link to sites within a post yet. Give me time :) But I will! Thanks again!

    P.S. How did you know crepes are my alltime favorite food on earth??? We went to an All-Inclusive in Mexico in January and they had a crepe lady at the buffet! I had like 10 every night! :) oops!

  7. Heather says:

    Ha- On first glance, I definitely thought that list of PB’s in the pie blog was a recipe!

    Those crepes look amazing- that may be brunch this weekend :)

    PS- Happy Friday!!

  8. Anne says:

    that apple pie peanut butter sounds amazing. I make something similar by mixing peanut/almond butter with apple butter and spreading it on apple slices or graham crackers

  9. VeggieGirl says:

    Nick, this post is FABULOUS!!! Love the photograph of your nut-butter collection (I know you’re PB Boy, but you MUST try hazelnut-butter – it’s my obsession); love the meme; and of COURSE I’m loving the luscious-looking crepes!! Yum!! I love ALL of your posts, but this one is for sure among my favorites :0)

  10. RecipeGirl says:

    I loved seeing your PB collection. You truly are a lover of peanut butter! And to think that you can find a way to incorporate pb into just about everything :)

  11. romina says:

  12. Anonymous says:

    I just made your crepes and they are SOOOO GOOD! I ate the entire batch, thank goodness it isn’t too unheatlhy!

  13. Rosanne says:

  14. Jessy and her dog Winnie says:

  15. VEGAN TICKLES says:

    Can’t wait try these.
    They look awesome

  16. daphne says:

    what a collection!!! Didnt know now that apple and peanut butter goes so well together as well. Maybe i shld dip a piece of apple into my peanut butter jar..

  17. Nick says:

    jill, I’m glad! The only thing that could cheer you up more is a pyramid of your own!

    garrett, It’s funny you mention that. I was looking in my girlfriends “earthquake kit” and it had these military food rations that were “super high density caloric cubes”. I checked out the nutrition info and calculated that peanut butter was not only denser but also healthier! Look out apocalypse! I’d love to join the gatherings sometime and I have yet to make it Sac, probably because I never know what places to try or where to go!

    grace, melissa, anne, veggiegirl, vegan tickles, you really must try these! At least make the crepes, you can easily fill them with savory items as well!

    melissa, I love crepes as well. We used to have them every Christmas morning and we’d eat about 4 or 5 each filled with butter and maple syrup on top. Those were the unhealthy days though, but these are JUST as good. Those all-inclusive’s in Mexico are killer. My family and I went to one in Cancun when I was young, they had the best tortilla chips any of us had ever had. All exaggeration aside, my mother, sister and I each had at least 2 pounds of chips every day! Chips and salsa comprised most of our meals for over a week. Again, those were the unhealthy days =).

    heather, Happy Saturday! =)

    recipegirl, It’s a talent, what can I say =).

    daphne, did you really not know that!? Peanut butter and apples is a fundamental combination! I actually never knew about the peanut butter and banana combo until about 9th grade and I though it was disgusting at the time!

  18. Kevin says:

    Those apple pie crepes look really good. Look at that collection of peanut butter!!

  19. oatmeal says:

    Oh wow! Your collection is PB-tastic! I am in awe.
    And whoo–I’m sure glad I found your recipe just as I was getting sick of eating my regular bran cereal and milk! I have something to look forward to again!
    PB and apples is something I only discovered this year [last month! to be exact], actually–and ever since then I’ve been addicted–can’t wait to see how this would taste on crepes!

  20. EAT! says:

    I am going to have to give these a try. We are crepe fanatics around my house.

  21. Naomi Devlin says:

    Nick, those are a lovely set of words, a real smorgasbord. Your peanut butter collection is awesome.I may post my alternative nut butters soon to show you just how crazy they are….

    x x x

  27. julie says:

    That actually looks REAL good !!!!!! I think you should try peanut butter on crackers… Its REALLY good:)

  28. Ginny Brown says:

    Hey Peanut Butter Boy: What’s REALLY yummy is peanut butter & crushed soda crackers on vanilla ice cream!

  29. That just may be too much yum for one plate…I’m going to have to test it out to make sure ;)

  30. my son and I are definitely going to try these!

  31. Marianne says:

    Oh man…if I had some whole wheat pastry flour, I would totally be making these right now. I love apple pie and I love peanut butter!

    • Nick says:

      Hmm, you can substitute regular whole wheat flour or even white flour if you need to! Also, sweet potato flour works great too (although I doubt you have that on hand)
