Banana Chocolate Crepes
I just made the best paleo treat and wanted to share it as fast as I could. The beautiful thing about this recipe is that it is grain and dairy-free! (I used a green plantain instead.) I based the recipe loosely off of the Plantain “Recovery” Pancake recipe but wanted something thinner and a little more pliable. I just purchased a big bag of organic cocoa and was dying to put it into something. I also had a rotting banana on my counter top that was begging for play. It was then that I decided to try out a recipe for a paleo crepe. I made these without any sweetener and I thought they were delicious. However, if you like them a little sweeter, you have the option of adding about a tablespoon of honey.
1 green plantain
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1 ripe banana
1 1/2 T. melted coconut oil
1 T. cacao powder (I used Sunfood’s raw organic cacao powder)
1 T. coconut cream or full fat coconut milk
1 T. water
1 T Honey (if not doing strict paleo and you like them a little sweeter) I made my batch without honey though.
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth and creamy. On a griddle or in a pan, add about 1/2 t. coconut oil. Carefully pour out a small amount of batter onto the surface and swirl with the handle or spread gently with a spatula. Cook until edges begin to dry and bubbles break at the surface, about 45 seconds to one minute. Carefully flip crepe and cook until done, about 30 seconds more.
