Apple Sauce Crepes with Honey Ricotta are perfect for school lunch or afternoon snack
I know it sounds surreal but the school year is approaching…. fast! I know many of you can relate to this sensation of excitement and nervousness at the same time as we prepare our little people for a new academic year. For me it’s particularly profound as one of my sons is reading for Kindergarten. Frankly, I have no idea how this has happened. I feel like he was just born the other day…
Anyhow, while he’s a very fussy eater, he does like apple sauce a lot. So I typically throw a cup or a pouch of super healthy, organic apple sauce onto his daily menu (thank you North Coast for all the supplies!).
My son also really likes honey – hence this idea of honey ricotta with organic apple sauce as the sweet filling for my crepes.
When you make these apple sauce crepes, you can fold them up like a burrito and then send with your kids to school for a healthy and delicious lunch. Or you could also just roll them up and serve them when your little student returns from the trenches at school, exhausted and hungry. These crepes for sure will give them the fuel to survive the post-school day.

How to make Applesauce Crepes with Honey Ricotta
To make the crepe batter, follow the instructions in my post for Perfect French Crepes.
For this crepes batter I used:
- Cinnamon; and
For the sweet filling for these crepes I used:
- North Coast Organic Apple Sauce;
- Organic Ricotta Cheese;
- Raw Honey
How to fold crepes:
Once your crepes are all fried up and you’ve added apple sauce and honey ricotta to them, you can either simply roll them up (version 1, below) or fold them like a burrito (version 2, below). As mentioned above, folding them like a burrito will probably work best for lunch boxes and rolling could be a good option for a pre-made stay at home lunch, or afternoon snack.
Well, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could also serve them up for breakfast. In fact, that’s what my 18 month old son had the other day. He loved them.
