Easy chocolate crepes
Easy chocolate crepes topped with bananas, caramel and whipped cream
Yield: 6 crepes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1/2 cup nonfat milk
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
Optional toppings: bananas, strawberries, caramel sauce, nutella, whipped cream, powdered sugar
Combine the milk, oil, egg, vanilla, sugar, flour, cocoa powder and salt in a blender. Blend on high, until smooth.
Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet to medium heat. Lightly spray with cooking spray. Pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of the batter while rotating the pan so it distributes evenly. Cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute (or until the edges have began to crisp) and then flip. Cook for an additional 15-20 seconds and then transfer to a plate. Cook remaining crepes.
Add your favorite toppings to the center of the crepe and then roll up. Add more toppings if desired and enjoy!
