Cinnamon Apple Crepes

This recipe for cinnamon apple crepes was originally a sponsored post. They’re so tasty that I make these at least once a month.

The wee ones are off school today, and when they woke up, they asked for crepes. And they asked me to make them special since they know I have in he past and days off school means we don’t have to rush anywhere.

Plus, I made pumpkin scones for breakfast yesterday, and apparently I set the bar a little high.

The good news is that crepes are actually a low maintenance breakfast. They take a little time to make since you do them individually, but it’s worth it.

I love my crepes recipe, partly because I whip it up in my blender in just a few seconds and then we have fun conversations while I’m cooking each crepe. I love this is a way to keep the lines of communication open with the wee ones as they get older.

Cinnamon apples as a quick topping? That was exactly what I was looking for today, and the combination of the Fuji and Granny Smith apples was just what I needed to make this happen.

As quick as the crepes are, this cinnamon apple topping is the perfect speedy complement. And everyone loved it.

All you need to do is simply dice your apples after washing them. They can be as large or small as you’re comfortable, but I find a smaller piece is easier to eat than the large chunks the wee ones tends to cut my apples into.

Diced apples for cinnamon apple topping

Saute them with a little butter and cinnamon, stirring to ensure you have coated all the apples with the cinnamon and butter. Stir again periodically so all apples cook evenly, then add a bit of brown sugar near the end.

Scoop up the apples and juice for individual crepes, and enjoy immediately. If your family is anything like mine, they eat the crepes as fast as you can make them.

If you have a more patient family, place the cooked crepes without any toppings onto a plate with each crepe separated by wax paper to keep them from sticking. I store the plate in the oven just to retain a little heat from cooking, but you don’t have to.
