As a child, crepes were my favorite food and my favorite thing to make in the kitchen. I remember coming home from school to get out the crepe pan and the heavily stained recipe book to prepare myself and everyone else in the house a sweet afternoon snack. The issue was that the recipe I used was loaded with refined sugar. And on top of that I would use even more sugar as a topping!
I still love crepes and make them quite often, but by now I know better than to fill my body with empty and harmful calories. That is where this recipe comes in. Why not get the best of both worlds? Sweet, delicious crepes that not only taste heavenly, but are also good for you. In my book that´s a win-win!
These crepes are extremely easy to make, require very few ingredients, and come together in less than 15 minutes. Perfect for a Saturday breakfast when you want to treat yourself and your family to something extra but without spending your entire morning in the kitchen.
banana Oat Crepes
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 very ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)
- Toppings of your choice (I used greek yogurt and fresh berries)
Blend oats in a food processor or blender until it becomes a fine flour. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
Heat a small pan over medium heat and add a little bit of coconut oil. Add a thin layer of the batter and cook for a few minutes on both sides until slightly golden.
Serve immediately with your toppings of choice.
I recommend making a double portion and freezing half. That way you always have a yummy healthy breakfast option at hand.
