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.

Simple Cinnamon Crepes and Fruit

Simple Crepes and Fruit

This is a big time favorite in my home. The minute I say I’m making crepes, it’s all hands on deck.

Ingredients:

2 eggs

1 c. flour

1/2 c. milk

2 TBS melted butter

1/2 c. water

1/4 tsp salt

Dash of Cinnamon *optional


After blending the flour and eggs, add the milk, butter, water, salt and a dash of cinnamon. Whisk well. Heat some oil in a skillet and once it starts to sizzle, pour in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the batter. Lift the skillet and slowly tilt it, in all directions. This allows the crepe to spread out evenly and thinly. Place the skillet back on the burner and lightly brown the crepe on both sides. Repeat until the batter is gone.

For a sauce, choose you favorite fruits. I personally rather enjoy raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. Add a little water and sugar to a saucepan. Mash the fruit and add it to the sugar water. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. You only need about a 1/2 cup of water. Sugar is at your discretion. Let cool and pour over crepes.

*Tips for Toppings, if your are out of fresh fruit.


Skip the cinnamon:

~add about a 1/2 cup of jelly to 1/2 cup of water.

Bring to a boil, let cool and pour over finished crepes.

~Melted Peanut Butter and Mashed Bananas, heated in a saucepan….amazing!

~Powdered Sugar

~melted white or dark chocolate, drizzled

~orange and pinapple chunks


Don’t forget a fruity beverage as a finishing touch.
