  • 6 tablespoons low-fat (1%) milk
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar (see Tips)
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon almond extract (optional)
  • ¾ cup vanilla fat-free Greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen sweet cherries, coarsely chopped (if frozen, do not thaw)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar (see Tips)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a blender combine milk, flour, sugar, salt, and almond extract. Cover and blend until smooth.
  2. Coat an 8-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Spoon in 2 tablespoons batter; lift and tilt skillet to spread batter evenly. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until brown on one side only. Invert over paper towels; remove crepe. Repeat with remaining batter, coating skillet with cooking spray as necessary. If crepes are browning too quickly, reduce heat to medium.
  3. Lightly coat six 2½-inch muffin cups with cooking spray. Gently nestle crepes into prepared cups, pleating as necessary to fit. In a medium bowl stir yogurt, cherries, egg, cornstarch, and salt. Spoon into crepe-lined cups.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until filling registers 160°F. Cool in muffin cups 5 minutes. Gently remove from muffin cups. Sprinkle each blintz with powdered sugar and serve with an additional cherry (thaw, if frozen).
