After tweaking a crepe recipe I came up with this incredibly delicious version – chocolate crepe batter, with bananas and chocolate sauce! A very big hit with my friends! Top with powdered sugar or whipped cream.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1/2 cup milk, 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter, egg yolk, vanilla, and 2 teaspoons hazelnut liqueur. Whisk 1 tablespoon cocoa into liquid until completely incorporated. Next, whisk in 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar until completely incorporated. Then gradually whisk in flour until completely incorporated. Set aside.
Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir 1 tablespoon milk and 2 teaspoons hazelnut liqueur into melted butter. Stir in 1 tablespoon cocoa and 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar. Set over very low heat to keep warm.
Spray a non-stick frying pan or crepe pan with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan, and swirl to form a very thin disk; cook for about 2 minutes. Flip, and cook about 1 minute more.
Place crepe on a plate. Add 1/4 sliced bananas to crepe, and spoon 1/4 of the chocolate sauce over the bananas. Roll or fold crepe, and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Repeat steps 3 and 4. Serve crepes warm.

Eating good breakfast to continue the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me power to make on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the evil of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and make keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the milk or on the table next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
