Banana Crepes

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I came across one heck of a deal on bananas the other day…. 40 lbs for $10!! What was even more amazing is that they were perfectly ripe!  Now I love bananas, but I can’t consume 40lbs of ripe bananas before some start to spoil so I got busy in the kitchen.  I dehydrated banana chips, peeled and froze several dozen to use in Bob’s morning smoothies and then I made banana wraps with the rest.  So if you are ever at the market and find to good of a deal to pass up, get creative!

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 ripe bananas

Instructions:

  1. Place bananas in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Remove from processor and spread about 1/8- inch thick on to a Teflex sheet on top of a dehydrator screen.
  3. Dehydrate at 115 degrees (F) for 14 hours or less.
  4. (Begin checking the bananas a few hours before to make sure they are formed, pliable, and solid in texture, but not getting crispy).
  5. Don’t forget to taste test you go!

This recipe makes an amazing treat. They are lovely to use as a crepe/wrap. Fill with your favorite fruit. Raspberries, strawberries, kiwi … gosh any fruit that you love!  Also, spread peanut butter or nut butter on these and roll them up … oooh now that sounds yummy! They are also wonderful to just roll up and eat or tear into strips as a fruit leather.  These make such wonderful desserts.  Make ahead of time so you can entertain at the snap of the finger.

Storage: I like to lay a piece of plastic wrap on the counter, place the crepe on that and just roll it up, tucking in the ends so no air gets in.  I then put them all in a gallon sized ziplock bag.  The last batch I made lasted 2 months.

    Yummy! I just made up a batch of these, which are dehydrating now. I hope to have crapes ready for breakfast tomorrow. This is a test run for Mother’s Day brunch. Thank you! And your blog is excellent.

    Another winner! My little ones Solomon and Kamryn, and I are having a blast with the new Excalibur 9-tray dehydrator that arrived at our doorstep a few days ago! As the three of us go through a rack of bananas every other day or so in smoothies, desserts, and straight-up, this crepe will satisfy our love of variety and add to our fun in the kitchen! I’m thinking these crepes will be great rolled up as a school lunch with Almond Butter and Strawberry Date Jam or Chocolate Chia Sauce. No matter how you roll it up…yum!

      I love it when we have a winner! :) Your further creative ideas are perfect! Your right Rebecca, a person could do so many things with these. Even making ANY of the raw cookie recipes could work all rolled up in the a banana crepe. I have done that numerous times. Gosh darn you, you are making me hungry and it’s time for bed. haha Thank you so much for sharing with me. Roll’m up…roll’m out…raw-hide! haha Yep, I need sleep. Night night :)

    Hi!
    It s the third time i m doing these pancakes…. And they tend to stick to the non stick sheets, and i found them a little chewy…. Could it be the banana itself? Or could this be avoided adding some flaxmeal into the batter?

    • amie-sue says:

      Hello Caroline,

      You called these pancakes, are you spreading the batter thick? The banana crepes / wraps will be a little chewy, its the nature of the banana alone. As far as sticking, were they dry enough when you removed them? Mine have always just peeled off without an issue. Adding flax meal will give it more body if that is what you are aiming for. Let me know… amie sue :)

    Hi Amie-Sue,

    What temperature setting did you use for these?

    Thanks!

    • amie-sue says:

      Hi Wendy…115 degrees (F)… I added that to the recipe. Thank you for asking so I could fix that. I wrote that post back in 2008, I hope my recipe writing skills have improved. hehe Blessings, amie sue

    Wondering if these need to be refrigerated and what the shelf life is. Thank you

    • amie-sue says:

      No they don’t need to be Tammy. I store mine in plastic wrap, making sure an extra piece is in between each crepe so they don’t stick together. Shelf life… well I have kept some for up to a month. They may even last longer. Enjoy, amie sue
