Avocado Banana Crepes

This simple recipe is fantastic! I just made them this morning and I’m still gorging on them as I type. I had an avocado that I needed to use up. Crepes are the go-to for any extra fruits and veggies.

INGREDIENTS


2 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup  flour

1 1/4 cups (or more) milk 

Melted butter

1 Avocado

2 bananas

*Coconut Oil


INSTRUCTIONS

Mix eggs and salt in large bowl.Whisk in flour, then 1 1/4 cups milk.  Let stand 1 hour.

(Add more milk by tablespoonfuls to batter to thin if needed).

Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add coconut oil.

Pour 1/3 cup batter into skillet and swirl to coat bottom evenly.

Cook until top appears dry, loosening sides of crepe with spatula, about 45 seconds. Turn and cook until brown spots appear on second side, about 30 seconds. Turn crepe out onto plate. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing skillet with butter and stacking crepes on plate.


Topping!

Peel and slice your avocado and bananas.

Add to your crepes and enjoy! (If you want it sweeter, go ahead and add sugar to the frying pan or sprinkle directly on the crepes).

Mixing Textures, Flavors and Temperatures

I found myself craving a melting pot of flavors and textures this morning. And with the windchill well below zero, I had all the time in the world to go a little crazy with both the food and the camera…

I know, I’ve been asked already…yes we eat our biggest meal in the mornings. We need the energy throughout the day. It never made any sense to me…to eat at 6 pm and then go to bed?!?!

If you get bored and maybe a winter storm is blocking your Direct TV signal (rolling eyes…we all know how often that happens), go play in the kitchen. There’s something about mixing flavors, textures and temps…….it’s bliss……
