Whole wheat crepes with fruit and nut compote

OK, I have to brag. I just made the best meal yet on my Daniel Fast! It was beautiful, delicious, nutritious, and surprisingly easy.

I made this recipe, making some substitutions for the sugar, all-purpose flour, and soy margarine with applesauce, whole wheat flour, and vegetable oil. I made the batter last night, covered it, and stashed it away in the fridge.

This morning, I concocted what turned out to be a very tasty topping/filling for the crepes:
-1 C fresh blueberries (or any other berries would be good!)
-1 sliced banana
-A dollop of no sugar added applesauce (maybe 1/3 cup or so?)
-Handful walnuts, crumbled into smaller pieces
-Enough water to make it sort of soupy
-Cinnamon (I didn't have any, but I think it would've been perfect in this.)
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Smush some of the berries with a fork. Heat on high. Allow mixture to boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Look for fruit to soften, and sauce to turn purple and thicken up a bit. Spoon into crepes. Roll crepes up. Top with remainder of sauce.

Here's how they turned out!
