Banana Crepes

I created this dish one morning at the end of the pay period when we were out of a number of staples. I didn’t have any flours or milks on hand, so pancakes and custard were out. I wasn’t in the mood for another breakfast of plain eggs, and I probably wouldn’t have been able to convince the children to eat them anyway. Instead I mixed up a little of this and that and discovered this surprisingly versatile little recipe.

5 large eggs
1 c mashed banana (227 g)
⅓ c coconut oil
½ t salt

  1. Puree together all ingredients until smooth
  2. Spoon 2 T batter onto ungreased griddle over med-low heat and spread out to a 6-in circle
  3. Cook until edges are well browned (about 1½ min)
  4. Flip carefully, spreading crepe flat if it crumples
  5. Cook an additional 30-60 sec

Yield: 18 crepes

Note: An experienced crepe maker could probably make 6-7 10-in crepes with this recipe, but I can’t get them to flip without tearing. If you are successful in making the larger size, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
