Only 2 ingredients for these crepes, no flour nor sugar!
Just banana and egg :)

The banana will give all the sweet taste so you don't really need any additional sugar.

You can use this recipe to make pancakes too so it's easily adjustable.
Who cares if you are on a diet, this recipe is really low fat so anybody can eat it! :D

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • a little bit of butter

Step 2: The Banana

The main ingredient of this recipe is the banana.

Let's start peeling the banana.
Cut it in smaller pieces and put it in a container.
What you have to do now is mashing the banana as much as possible. I used a mixer to make sure that there were no pieces left. You can do this using a fork too, but it's going to be a little harder.

Step 3: Mix Everything

Put the egg in a little bowl and scramble it for a while.
Now add the banana mash and mix everything together.

The mixture for your crepes is ready!

If you think that it's not liquid enough, you can add a little bit of milk to it.


Step 4: Cook Your Crepes!

Prepare a pan (I used a special pan for crepes) spreading a little bit of butter on the surface, so that the crepes won't stick to the pan later.

Now turn on the stove and pour some mixture in the pan using a big ladle.
Immediately move the pan in a circular way to make the liquid lay on the whole pan's surface and give it a pretty round shape.
You must do this immediately otherwise you won't be able to move the mixture anymore.

When you notice that the borders of your crepe start to be solid enough to tear away from the pan, turn the crepe on the other side and let it cook until it's ready (check it from time to time, it takes very little time).

Be careful when you turn the crepe because it will easily break! :)

Continue this way with the rest of the mixture. I made about 2 crepes with this dose.

Step 5: Fill Them!

Your crepes are ready!

You can fill them with whatever you like now.
I spread some jam on mine :)

Fold the crepe in 4 and dust with some powdered sugar if you like...
Enjoy!

    Hi and thank you for your recipe, i use banana a lot for cooking, but never tried it for crepes. Here is my recipe (for one).

    Put one egg,
    4 spoons of milk,
    spoon of potato or corn starch,
    pinch of salt
    coffee spoon of brown sugar

    whisk it

    Put butter in the pan. Melt it, wait till the pan is hot. Don't make it too hot, just in the middle.

    Pour in the dough. Wait till the crepe is solid enough so you can flip it. Check for the golden color. When its done, here comes the sweet finish that make is top 1.

    For filling:
    Spread the crepe on the plate
    Put on some wild fruit (or whatever you have)
    I like strawberries, blackberries
    Add sour creme.
    Roll it (or fold it)
    -----------------------------------------

    On top:
    Powdered sugar
    Drops of lemon

    Additional info
    experiment with the amount of salt in the dough. It increases the the taste, but carefully
    Eggs with lemon seems to be little bit adventurous combination, but in fact, they come perfectly along and makes these crepes best i've ever had (and i know what im saying, i'm eating for every dinner for at least a year, VERY addictive :D )

    Do you use an actual potato starch or potato flakes in your recipe? Also, couldn't adding potato flakes/starch to the Instructables recipe give it added body? That sounds like it is worth some experimentation, but I'm not much of a cook, so would really appreciate it if somebody who is handy at it could give it a try and report back.

    I had a problem with turning the crepe. It seemed too wet in the middle and wouldn't stay together when the edges had set. Is it because there were too many air bubbles in my mix? Pan was hot and buttered correctly.

    I had a hard time turning my crepes too because they break very easily, I don't think it is because of the air bubbles. This is because there is no flour in the mix to keep the crepes together. If you prefer (and you still want them to be gluten free), you can add some gluten free flour, I am pretty sure that this will solve the problem! :)

    Is that how you got them to look like you did in your first picture? Really want to make them exactly the same. Thanks for your reply btw!

    No, I made mine without the flour, just like I wrote in my instructable. All I did was being as careful as I could while turning them...my first crepe actually broke a little, but the second one turned out perfect, and that's the one you see in the pictures :)
    I think there are also special pans for crepes that allow you to make crepes without turning them but I don't know too much about them.

    Very nice! I'd like to try them. Any ideas about egg substitution?
