Low Carb Nutella Crepes

Sometimes I regret having a super old Minolta E323 camera from I'm guessing 2005ish...
The photo I took for the knock off Nutella Recipe that I low-carbed is underwhelming to me. I thought it would be prettier in a crepe.

I've also been meaning to try the recipe for the Cream Cheese pancakes from this blog:

Today was the day to try for another "Nutella" picture and make some pancakes.

I made my "Nutella" first. Sliced up some berries. Whipped up some cream. Made the pancakes. Put it all together and here is what I got.

These crepes are also great with Sugar Free Maple Syrup.
I will never buy a low carb pancake mix ever again.
These are much better. can't see the hazelnut spread inside.
I find that the pancakes are really more crepe-like.

Cream Cheese Crepes
2 oz. cream cheese
2 eggs
1 packet artificial sweetener. (today I used Truvia)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients in the Magic Bullet, or some sort of food processor until smooth. Let rest for two minutes to allow some of the bubbles to disperse.
Cook over a medium heat. Approximately 2 mins for the first side, 1 minute for the flip side.
This made 6 crepes for me. Net Carbs: 2.5

Whipped Cream
2 Tbsp heavy cream
Dash of Stevia
Dash of Vanilla

Whip together in the Magic Bullet with the flat blade. It takes mere seconds.
Net Carbs: 1

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
1 oz. roasted hazelnuts
1 oz. sugar free chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. heavy cream
1/2 tsp of sugar free hazelnut syrup. (I currently have Torani. I like Monin O'Free as well)

Chop up hazelnuts in food processor. Depending on your processor switch blades.
Continue processing nuts. In my machine they get really fine and form a ball.
Continue processing nuts. Eventually the ball flattens out and starts to glisten.
Stop processing nuts. Switch back to a chopping blade.

In a microwave safe container combine chocolate chips with cream.
Microwave for about 30 seconds on a medium high setting. Check with a spoon to see if the chips are melty.
If not, microwave a bit longer.
If they are melty, add the cream and chocolate chips to the nut butter. Blend all ingredients together.

Net carbs: 6

To assemble spread hazelnut spread on top of the crepes and roll up. Dollop whipped cream on with a spoon.

Net carbs without berries: 9.5 (That's for all 6 crepes!)
