Carmelized Bananna Crepes


I have had this thought in my head for quite some time and today I realized I had a bunch of bananas that needed to be eaten and some leftover frozen crepes in the freezer, shazam!

My husband and I are mostly savory breakfast folks, but this was really good for a change and super easy!

3 bananas sliced
2 tbl butter
1/4 brown sugar
Crepes buy them or make them
Sliced almonds (optional I wish I had some to use when I made mine)

Slice your bananas into a bowl and set aside

Place the butter and brown sugar into a non stick fry pan on medium heat, and let them caramelize, keep stirring until the color is a nice dark brown and the mixture thickens (I did not let mine go long enough the mixture is too light in color). Add your bananas and cook for about a minute

In the meantime prepare your crepes, cook fresh ones or re-heat some you have

Place some of the mixture down the middle of your crepes, roll them up and top with additional banana mixture and nuts. Whipped cream is also yummy!

Honey, I never have crepes in my freezer. Every time I think to make extra, they're all devoured! This is how I make my non-alcoholic bananas foster and I pour it over vanilla ice cream. Certainly not healthy, but helladelicious!
