  • 1
    1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
    4 Eggs
    2 cups Whole Milk
    3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    pinch of Salt
    For the Crepes: Place the flour in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking to combine. Add the milk bit by bit and whisk to combine until all the milk is incorporated. Whisk in the extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and allow the batter to stand for 10 minutes to an hour.
  • 2
    Butter (to oil crepe pan) 
    Heat a 6-inch nonstick pan over high heat until hot and add a dab of butter. Turn the heat down to medium and pour 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter into the pan and swirl to coat. Cook until pale golden on the bottom, about 1 minute. Flip and cook just 5 or 10 seconds on the second side. Remove and set aside. Continue the process until all the batter has been used. Keep warm on a plate and cover with a warm towel.

    1/4 teaspoon freshly grated Nutmeg
    2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
    4 Bananas (diced)
    1/3 cup Dark Rum
    Salt (to taste)
    For the Banana Foster: Melt butter over medium heat in a large non-stick skillet. Add the brown sugar, spices and vanilla and cook until caramelized, stirring occasionally. Toss in the bananas and coat with the sauce. Add the rum and flambe until flames extinguish.
  • 5
    1 cup All Natural Peanut Butter
    Water (plus more as needed)
    Salt (to taste)

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Make the crepe batter the night before to allow the flour to absorb the liquid.
    2. Substitute the bananas for apples, if you like.
