Ingredients for Whole Wheat Crepe

Ingredients for Filling

Procedure:

For Crepes

Mix together whole wheat flour, milk, salt, egg, sugar (or powdered jaggery or honey) and water to make a thin batter. Heat a pan and smear oil. (or butter or ghee on it) Pour a ladle of batter and swirl the pan around to make the crepe. Cook for a few minutes on one side, and then flip over to cook for a little longer. Keep aside once all the crepes are cooked. Prepare crepes in the same way with the remaining batter.

For Filling

For caramelized bananas: Heat butter in a pan and add brown sugar or jaggery. When it melts, arrange banana slices and cook till browned on one side. Flip over and cook for a few seconds till browned well.

Arranging the Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Spirals

Place a whole wheat crepe on a plate. Spread the creamy peanut butter all around the crepe leaving a 1/2 inch border. Arrange a few slices of caramelized bananas in a single layer over the peanut butter mixture. Roll up the crepe. Slice each roll in to a few smaller pieces to create mini spirals.

If you want to avoid eggs, make wheat dosas (using whole wheat flour, a pinch of salt and water) as the base instead of wheat crepes.

 

Bananas are a naturally sweet fruit and combined with warm wheat crepes, creamy peanut butter and caramelized bananas, this makes a delicious breakfast, snack or dessert! A innovative and delicious way to serve peanut butter and bananas to your kids.

These delicious mini spirals are good for little hearts because they provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fat from the peanut butter, potassium from the banana, and fiber from the wheat.

This is also a great dish to whip up with your kids. Little hands can participate in creating this unique and fun dish. Allow the kids to mix, slice (with a plastic knife), spread, and roll.
