Yes, another pumpkin recipe. But I promise it is so worth it! Simple crepes are filled with the ultimate Fall-flavored filling: ricotta, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg. These may just be the cure to the Monday blues 😉
Despite snacking on almond ricotta bowls with mixed berries all last week, I still had a stubborn 1/2 cup of ricotta to use up. With various recipe ideas floating in my head, Bry and I had the perfect Fall-in-New England Friday evening: pumpkin picking and fresh-from-the-oven apple cider donuts. Now, I’m not a donut fan. Nor am I an apple cider fan. However, when you combine the two? Something magical happens. I spent the rest of the weekend dunking a plain apple cider donuts into mugs of hot coffee. Perfection.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. While we were walking around the farm store, it hit me: pumpkin ricotta crepes. Perhaps an odd revelation to have, but the coziness of the store had me dreaming of being comfy in bed with a plate of cinnamon, maple pancakes. But pancakes alone weren’t good enough. Pumpkin Ricotta Crepes, however, were just what my tastebuds were craving.
Now, these aren’t the fancy, indulgent crepes you get out. Instead, these are diet-friendly, low calorie crepes that are nearly foolproof to prepare. And if a pumpkin-ricotta filling isn’t your style, they would also be delicious with some Greek yogurt and fresh berries. But who am I kidding – pumpkin ricotta filling is everyone’s jam, especially when pure maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg are stirred in.
Now, I found these sweet enough as-is, but Bry recommends an extra drizzle of pure maple syrup over the top to take your taste buds straight to autumn heaven.
So here’s a toast to fully submerging yourself in the Fall spirit!
