Ingredients

  • 1 Cup buckwheat flour
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 Cup skim milk
  • 3 Ounces frozen concentrate apple juice
  • 3 bananas
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Splenda
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for greasing

Directions

In a blender mix the flour, egg whites, milk, and 2 tablespoons of the apple juice concentrate until smooth. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes before cooking.

In a large skillet over high heat, add the bananas and cook until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the cinnamon, cloves, vanila extract, and Splenda and cook until the liquid has evaporated and the bananas are golden brown, another 5 minutes or so. 

In a small skillet greased with nonstick cooking spray over medium-high heat, ladle a small amount of batter to make a thin crepe. When the crepe starts to bubble slightly, turn over, about 1 minute. Cook for 10 seconds more and remove from the pan and lay out on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the batter. Roll the banana filling inside the crepes and serve warm.

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
