Sweet Banana Nutella Crepes

You can now make crepes at home with these easy recipe. Crepes are basically a very thin pancake, but better in my opinion. They may seem a bit intimidating to make yourself, but I promise it is so easy! They only take 5 minutes to prep and I’m guessing you already have most of these ingredients stocked in your pantry.

This dish takes my classic crepe recipe up a notch. Because anything is better with nutella, right?! The thin crepe topped with the delicious chocolate hazelnut spread and sliced bananas is a dream come true!

These nutella crepes are seriously delicious and sure to be a hit. The best part is the chocolate hazlenut flavor from the nutella. It adds the perfect richness and tastes great paired with the thin crepe and fresh bananas or berries. These make the perfect addition to Sunday brunch or for a fun dessert night.

Ways to Serve Crepes with Nutella

We love to serve these crepes with nutella and banana slices or fresh berries. You could even caramelize the bananas for a deeper flavor. Then top them off with a little powdered sugar and whipped cream. I love that they can pass as both a sweet breakfast and indulgent dessert!

Folding your crepes

There are a few different ways to fold these crepes. I folded mine into triangles, but you can also roll them up like I did with these apple crepes. Triangles look a bit more elegant, while rolled crepes allow for extra filling inside. Either way is delicious!

Making Ahead of Time

One thing I love about these crepes is they can easily be made ahead of time. The batter needs to chill for at least 30 minutes anyways, so I usually make it night before so that it can sit in the fridge overnight. The longer the batter rests, the more light and airy your crepes will be. Just give the batter a quick stir beforehand the next morning.

You can also stack the cooked crepes and refrigerate them for up to 3 days. If you’re worried about them sticking, you can place a piece of wax paper in between each one, but I never do. When I’m ready to reheat them, I’ll just reheat quickly on the pan or in the microwave.

Keeping them warm

Entertaining a crowd? Keep your crepes warm in the oven while you finish cooking the rest of the batter. Simply place them onto a baking sheet and place in the oven at 175°F. They will stay warm and delicious, without drying out.
