Peanut Butter Banana Crepes

peanutbutterbananacrepesOh dear lord crepes. I love crepes. I remember being at the Renaissance fair once year and getting one filled with all kinds of berries. It was delicious. Amazing even. So I thought, why not recreate one that I really love. And if you guys haven’t noticed I really love peanut butter! So I went online and looked through tons of recipes and everyone said how wonderful crepes are, you can make tons and freeze them. They can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner and of course dessert. Oh how people lie. I would do a couple practice rounds if this is your first time ever making crepes. Once you get the hang out it, you will become a crepe making machine!

So crepes can be filled with almost anything so feel free to switch up the fillings or try even more savory ones that require cooking the fruits in brown sugar. Yummy indeed.

Here is what you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup of fat free skim milk
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp of lite Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup

This is what you do:

  1. Mix together flour, eggs, salt, vegetable oil, and milk. Whisk until everything is combined. The mix will be more watery then pancake mix.
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet. Tilt the pan in a circular motion to allow the batter to spread to the edges. Cook until the bottom is light brown, about 2 minutes then flip the crepe. Cook about another minute then remove from pan. Repeat for next three crepes.
  3. Slice banana into pieces and sit aside. Put peanut butter into a microwaveable bowl and microwave it for about 30 seconds. Take out at 15 seconds and stir. Place each crepe on a plate and split banana slices up and fill each crepe. Fold crepes over and place seam down. Now drizzle melted peanut butter and chocolate syrup on top. Enjoy!

This recipe makes four servings and each serving is just 3pp each. If you are not a huge fan of peanut butter like I am then you can switch that out for Nutella and the points stay the same! Feel free to post what you try with it! I always love new ideas!
