What We’re Eating: Banana Chocolate Crepes

Image Source: Parenting Magazine

I’ve been going through magazines and just marking off recipes and ideas that I like, so that I can pass them on to others (as I de-clutter). This BANANA CHOCOLATE CREPES was one that I found in Parenting Magazine. It is listed under Healthy Kids Snacks on the website, but I’m not sure that it is a healthy snack. Oh well, they were good.

CHANGES
None

SUGGESTIONS
The next time we make these, I would either add even less than a “pat of butter”, and possibly less chocolate chips. And maybe, just put it in the toaster oven to bake for a few minutes instead of putting on the pan for more crispiness, instead of crepe-like. That would make it easier for the kids to eat it by themselves, and also makes for easier cleanup (no need to wash a pan).

VERDICT
The ‘pat of butter’ added too much of a salty flavor to the crepe, but otherwise, it was yummy. I love that this is something simple that the kids can help make.
