Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

1. In a medium-large microwave-safe bowl, mix oats with 1/2 cup water. Microwave for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Add sweetener, and stir well.

2. To make the batter, in a small bowl, combine egg whites, protein powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Whisk until uniform.

3. To make the crepes, bring a 10-inch skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Pour half of the batter into the pan, quickly tilting the skillet in all directions to evenly coat the bottom. Cook until lightly browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip with an offset spatula or flexible rubber spatula. Cook until lightly browned on the other side, about 1 minute.

4. Transfer the crepe to a plate, and repeat with remaining egg mixture to make another crepe.

5. To the bowl of cooked oats, add apple, yogurt, raisins, and walnuts. Mix well. Divide mixture between the centers of the crepes.

6. Fold both sides of each crepe over the filling.
