Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Crepes


Crepes with Skippy Chocolate Peanut Butter and Bananas





1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted



In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.


Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.


Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.


One thing that helps if your crepes are getting too thick (especially if you don't want to buy one more thing to take up room in your kitchen that is made to cook 1 thing like a crepe pan) then buy a crepe spreader. You just spin this in the middle of the crepe and it spreads it even and it keeps the crepes in a nice circle. 






 
After the crepes are done than you add a generous amount of Skippy Chocolate Peanut Butter and  sliced bananas inside the crepe, and roll them up. This is actually one of my favorite kind of crepes. If there are extra crepes left over then sometimes when the kids aren't looking I can heat one up for myself and do this really quick.As a side note my son likes to make one with Skippy peanut butter, chocolate chips and powdered sugar.

Crepes

It was yet another crazy day at our house. Kadan had basketball practice at 5:30, which is right when we usually eat. So we had an early dinner of grilled cheeses with out dad. After practice I thought some sweet crepes was a fun more filling snack. Now all my kids want for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack is crepes. If its anything different (which it usually is) all I hear is whining thru the meal. There are not a lot of meals my whole family enjoys and I don't like making more than one thing for dinner. My kids don't understand how crepes can't be the solution to that problem every day. Kadan even told me he wrote in his journal at school, "My mom let me have an unhealthy dinner last night." Glad I'm doing such a good job giving my kids balanced meals!

This is one of my favorite crepes recipes which was given to me by my sister.

Caramel Apple Crepes Sauce
1Cup packed brown sugar
4 Teaspoons cornstarch
1 Cup whipping cream
2 Tablespoons apple brandy, brandy or apple juice
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
2 Cups of thinly sliced apples (I peel mine and I use green apples)
In a large saucepan stir together brown sugar and cornstarch.
Stir in whipping cream and apple brandy, brandy or apple juice.
Add the apples, I use green so they don't get as mushy when they cook.
Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly,
 then stir for 2 more minutes.
Enjoy on your crepes.
