Confession, I never had crepes as a child. Seriously. I had a very deprived childhood. I was in my 30’s (*GASP*) before I had my first bite of a crepe!!
My blogging friend’s recipe made me realize just how deprived I was! It has only been in the last year that I have tried them – and I still can’t figure out why I never had them before?! Maybe because I don’t like breakfast food most of the time?
But crepes are more than breakfast food. They’re any-time food, especially if you’re feeling hungry between breakfast and lunch. Plus, they’re so easy to make, not to mention pretty cheap – and you can fill them with almost anything, sweet or savory!!
One of our favorite varieties of fillings for crepes is a spin-off of a favorite sandwich – the fluffernutter. These Banana Fluffernutter Crepes are full of bananas, peanut butter, and marshmallow fluff. Super delish!
Surprise your family with a fun weekend brunch … or have something a little bit different for dinner one night! You know if I recommend a sweet-ish breakfast food, it’s a GOOD recipe, y’all!! These Banana Fluffernutter Crepes are sure to be a hit! Enjoy!

Simple Crepes: FAQs
About a half-hour. You’ll want 20 minutes to prep the ingredients and 10 minutes to cook them.
It should make enough crepes for 6-8 servings! Plenty for everyone to have.
Once the unfilled crepe wraps have cooled, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels between them, refrigerate, and use within 2-3 days, then fill with your desired filling!! You can also store them in the freezer for about a month if you use a lidded container or freezer bag.
In place of the milk, you can use almond milk, etc. I’ve seen enough people do it to feel confident saying it works! As for the butter, I imagine dairy-free alternatives work too.
Absolutely. You can use a neutral plant-based oil in your pan to make the crepes. However, I think the crepes taste slightly better with the butter, don’t mind me.
