[Recipes] Lean, Molten Banana Nutella Crepes

banana nutella crepes, healthy banana nutella crepes, low fat crepes

Nutella is spreadable crack. Stuff it in crepe form, combine it with a warm, flambéed banana, and you’ve pretty much just build the Eighth Wonder of the World. Pure, unadulterated mouthgasm.

While Nutella is the darling, Italian dessert that noone wants to pick on or call out, the stark reality is that it’ll absolutely obliterate your belly. 2 TBSP packs 200 calories, 21 g of sugar, and 12 g of fat. That just doesn’t work on an everyday basis.1

Lucky for you we’ve successfully engineered ‘Lean, Molten Banana Nutella Crepes;‘ a succulent, chocolatey, melt-in-your-mouth wunderfood that’s low in EVERYTHING and more than belly-friendly for everyday use.

With only 136 calories, 1 g fat, 9 g sugar, and 25 net carbs per crepe — plus a solid 4 g fiber & 6 g of protein, to boot — it’s a scrumptious way to kickstart the day, refuel post-workout, or enjoy dessert without the damage.

Ingredients

Directions


Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes | Servings: 2 Banana Nutella Crepes

 

1. Spray a small frying pan with cooking spray (I like spray coconut oil) and set it over low heat. Cut up a ripe banana into slices and let them cook while you’re making the batter (step 2).

Keep an eye on the pan and flip the slices when they soften and become a crisp golden brown. Leave on low heat for a few more minutes and shut off once the underside is golden as well.

2. Combine 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup almond milk, 2 TBSP egg whites, 1.5 TSP unsweetened applesauce, cinnamon, and a pinch of kosher salt in a deep bowl or measuring cup (easier to pour).

Mix vigorously until the batter is smooth without any clumps; it should be liquidy.

Step 2

3. Place a second, medium-sized frying pan over medium heat. Gently pour half of the batter into the pan and shift, twist, and turn it so that the bottom is fully coated with a smooth, thin layer of batter.

Step 3

4. While the crepe is cooking, grab a separate cup/bowl and slowly add water to 2 TBSP chocolate PB2. Mix until it forms a thick paste.

5. Once your crepe hardens, browns, and there’s no longer any liquid batter on top, turn the heat off. Add 1/2 of your flambéed bananas and a dollop of your PB2 mixture to one side of the crepe.

6. Fold the crepe in half so that the bananas and PB2 are firmly inside. Plate and top with the remaining flambéed bananas and PB2.

Feel free to make extra PB2 if you want more topping; it’s only 45 calories, 3 g sugar, and 4 g of protein per 2 TBSP.
