Cheesy Roll Ups

Crepes don’t have to be sweet and filled with fruit. Crepes are just as yummy with savory ingredients. If you are looking for a quick and easy snack for you or for your kids try these cheese roll ups. I love them more than tortillas because small tortillas are about 140 calories each and over 20 carbs whereas crepes are about 70 calories and only 9 carbs. Plus crepes are way easier to make than tortillas – well at least for me!

Cheese is a Great Snack

Cheese is a great option for a snack as it is high in protein, but you want to make sure that you use your food scale when measuring out servings. A serving of cheddar cheese is 1 ounce and is about 100 calories a 6 grams of protein. You can also choose 2% options also to lower your calories, but since I make these mainly for the boys I don’t stress about that too much. They move around enough to burn the calories!

Make Crepes Ahead of Time

I like to make a big batch crepes about once a week. You can store them in the fridge with wax paper between each crepe for 5 days or freeze them for up to 3 months! You can find my crepe recipe on my post about Breakfast for Dinner.

Let’s Make Them

Cheesy Roll Ups

I started with shredding my cheese, you can use pre-shredded cheese if you wish.

Then place the crepe on a pan sprayed with cooking spray and sprinkle the cheese on your crepe.

To help the melting process you can place a lid over your cheese.

Watch the bottom of your crepe closely and pull off as soon as the cheese is melted.
