I was answering a comment on the site and thought about these. Thanks for the inspiration Lisa! I thought these sounded so good sprinkled over my yogurt I went in and made them right away. And they were! A very simple solution to changing up my daily yogurt and a fresh new way to get my oat bran!! I can’t wait to see what else I can do with these! They take a little effort but they are well worth it!!
CINNAMON OAT BRAN BREADCRUMBS
6 T Oat Bran
3 T nonfat cream cheese
3 eggs or 3/4 cup egg whites
1 t Splenda, I use 2 T zero calorie brown sugar
1 T cinnamon
1 t vanilla
pinch of salt
3-4 T water
Whisk the first three ingredients together and add a tablespoon of water at a time until you get it to crepe batter consistency. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into a large non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray.
Tilt the pan until the batter has made a large thin circle and brown the first side, flipping after small air bubbles appear on the surface.
Brown the other side. After I made all the crepes I toasted them to get them nice and brown.
Then I put them in a food processor after they cooled and processed to breadcrumb consistency.
Then I toasted the breadcrumbs at 350 for 25-35 minutes, until nice and brown and crispy. They almost resembled granola. Keep unused breadcrumbs in the fridge.
