Banana Foster Crepes combine two of my favorite desserts – homemade crepes and bananas fosters! This slimmed down make-over is delicious and perfect anytime you're craving something sweet!

Ingredients

For the Crepes (makes 6):

  • 1/2 cup all purpose or white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cups 1% milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon oil (olive or grapeseed)
  • nonstick spray

For the Bananas Foster:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salted butter (coconut oil for dairy-free)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 medium ripe bananas (sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices on the bias)
  • 3/4 cup vanilla ice cream (or dairy-free ice cream)

Instructions

  • In a blender, blend flour, milk, eggs and oil until smooth.
  • Heat a nonstick crepe pan on medium-low flame. When hot, spray with cooking spray to coat bottom of skillet.
  • Pour 1/4 cup crepe mixture into pan, swirling pan slightly to make crepe thin and smooth.
  • Cook for 1 minute or until bottom of crepe is light golden brown.
  • Flip; cook 30 seconds to 1 minute or until light golden brown.
  • Set aside on a plate and repeat with remaining crepe mixture until you have 6.
  • For the bananas, melt the butter over low heat in a large non-stick skillet.
  • Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract, stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of water, cover and let the sauce simmer about 2 minutes.
  • Add the sliced bananas, gently spooning the sauce over each piece and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bananas are glossy and coated with the sauce.
  • Remove from heat.
  • To serve, spoon a generous 1/3 cup of the bananas in the center of each crepe and fold the left and right side of the crepes to cover.
  • Top each crepe with 2 tablespoons ice cream, and any pan juices from the bananas on top, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve right away.
