LOW CARB CREPES
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon granular Splenda (for dessert crepes only)
1/2 cup MiniCarb bake mix
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder *
1/4 teaspoon onion powder *
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup water
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese with electric mixer until smooth. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Add the Splenda, bake mix, baking powder and seasonings. Beat until smooth. Add the cream and water; blend well.
Spray a 9 or 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat (if your stove is on the hot side, set it a bit lower). Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into center of pan and immediately lift and rotate the pan quickly to swirl the batter into a 6-7 inch circle. Cook until the underside is well set and lightly browned. Very gently pry up the edges with a pancake turner that has been sprayed with cooking spray, then very gently, but quickly, flip the crepe over. Make sure the pancake turner is under the center of the crepe before flipping it to prevent breakage. Cook until the second side is lightly browned. Remove to a plate and cool. Put a piece of wax paper between each crepe and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Makes 12 crepes
Can be frozen
TIP: I found it helpful to lightly spray the pan between making each crepe and spraying the pancake turner helps keep the crepe from sticking to it and breaking. Also, if you find that the batter is still a little too thick to spread well, add a little more water, a tablespoon at a time.

These are very good and can be used as crepes or flour tortillas in recipes. Once I got the hang of flipping them without them cracking, they were quite easy to make. It is important to make sure the first side is well set before attempting to flip the crepe. I haven't tried freezing them yet, but will post back my results later when I try it.
You could use other kinds of bake mix, such as Atkins brand, but the carbs will be a bit higher. Although these are low enough in carbs to possibly be eaten on induction, I didn't mark them suitable due to bake mix not being on the allowable list.
