Sunday Morning Crepes

We were bummed we didn't put out the Trader Joe's chocolate croissants. So, after debating for a bit over cereal, bacon and eggs, breakfast burritos, and possibly sausages we kept coming back to chocolate. We had bananas for smoothies and when you put them with nutella you get crepes! YUMMERS!! The batter was pretty lumpy - I think next time we would put the liquid into the dry and mix more slowly. We mixed for a while to get it to a smoother consistency. We found a recipe and it sounded like too much so we made a third and we made about 5 crepes.
On to the recipe:

Banana Nutella Crepes

makes approx 5 crepes

2 tbsp butter
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar (plus a bit more)
a pinch salt


1 banana sliced

Heat your pan to medium-high heat with a little butter.
Our pan is a 10 inch non-stick anodized pan.

We used a 1/4 cup scoop to pour the batter into the pan. The first crepe was a little thin and too large to flip without tearing so we used a little less than three scoops of batter to get a good thickness and let it set before flipping. We cooked them until they weren't runny anymore on top and then flipped.

We spread Nutella on top with slices of banana and rolled 'em up. Mmmmmm.
A simple easy breakfast. really!
